RIP Marco Simoncelli

Today is another sad day in the world of motor sport.  Last week we had the death of Dan Wheldon the two times Indy 500 winner at Las Vegas.

Today in MotoGP, the motorcycling premier class we lost Marco Simoncelli.  A great young up and coming rider who was a real threat for next years championship.

The thrill of Motorcycling and the adrenaline rush, like most motor sports is partly due to the risk.  No matter what safety features you add to cars and bikes or changes to tracks, there is always going to be risk.  That risk is why many take part, the thrill of pushing yourself to the limit.

Ours thoughts are with the families of those who have lost loved ones.

Take care out there on the road, and keep it sticky side up.
