Fausto Gresini has confirmed that his Gresini Moto2 and MotoGP teams will both race at Valencia in honor of Marco Simoncelli.
Initially it was confirmed that the Gresini teams would attaned Valencia only to set-up the garage and display Simoncelli’s bike. That has all changd, and Fausto Gresini confirmed in a press release that they will race.
Here is what he said:
“The decision to participate was not an easy one, but we have made this choice as it is what Marco would have wanted. Going out on track at Valencia is definitely the best way to honour him by doing what he most loved to do: Ride and experience the world of MotoGP. This is why I believe that the best show of affection that we can make to Marco is by lining up our teams and riders for this race. ‘Super Sic’ will be present in the hearts of Hiroshi Aoyama, Michele Pirro and Yuki Takahashi, and I am sure that they will give him a most fitting tribute with their performances on Sunday.”
Also, Simoncelli’s father, Paolo, has conformed that he would like a minute of ‘Casino’, whre all riders in all classes will rev their engines in tribute to Simoncelli.
