MotoGP, Team Gresini remembers Simoncelli at Phillip Island

The Sic58 sticker on all the team's bikes for the fifth anniversary of Marco's passing


It was 23 October of 2011 when, on the Sepang track, Marco Simoncelli left us forever. Team Gresini, for which Sic raced, decided to remember him at Phillip Island with a sticker on the top fairing of all the bikes on the grid.

Baustista and Bradl in MotoGP, Lowes in Moto2, Bastianini and Di Giannantonio in Moto3 have a Sic58 sticker on their bikes.

Fausto Gresini said: “Five years ago our Marco left us. It is a very sad day on which the memory of those terrible moments  return. Moments that I will never be able to forget.  Our activity has always continued in his name and today we would like to remember him doing what he loved to do: racing. Today Sic will go out on the track with us, right here in Australia, on a track where he took a splendid second place. It was a result that had made him enthusiastic. I remember that he left for Malaysia incredibly charged up, ready to conquer the world! Ciao, Marco. We miss you very much.
