Gresini about-face on Valencia

2011-11-01 09:14

MARCO SIMONCELLI: Killed in a crash during the 2011 Sepang MotoGP.

The Honda Gresini team now will compete at the Valencia MotoGP weekend after previously pulling out of the season-ending race because of the death of its Italian rider Marco Simoncelli.

Simoncelli, 24, was killed during the Malaysian MotoGP  on October 23 when he came off his bike and was hit by the machines of fellow riders Colin Edwards and Valentino Rossi.

'BEST SHOW OF AFFECTION'

"The decision to participate was not easy but we have made this choice... it is what Marco would have wanted," team chief Fausto Gresini told the MotoGP website. "Going out on the track at Valencia is definitely the best way to honour - doing what he most loved, riding and experiencing the world of MotoGP.

"This is why I believe the best show of affection we can make to Marco is by lining up our teams and riders for this race."

The team will not replace Simoncelli in Valencia. Japan's Hiroshi Aoyama is to be the sole representative for the MotoGP race while Michele Pirro and Yuki Takahashi will compete in the Moto2 event.
