MUGELLO, Italy - Valentino Rossi lined up at his home circuit at Mugello ahead of the 2014 Italian MotoGP wearing a special racing suit to remember fellow racer Marco Simocelli.

The rider was killed at the 2011 Malaysian MotoGP in a three-bike crash that also involved Colin Edwards and Valentino Rossi himself.

It had #thisforSIC58 embroidered on the back to show his support to the Marco Simoncelli foundation, an organisation dedicated to the rider's memory.

The suit will be worn by Rossi during the Italian MotoGP weekend then auctioned on June 18.

All information about the auction and product details will be available on the brand-new Dainese website  which will go live on Friday June 13.

The price achieved will go to the Santa Marta project, a day centre for the disabled near Coriano, Simoncelli's home town.
