Gresini team to attend Valencia race
San Carlo Gresini Honda, the team for which Marco Simoncelli rode prior to his tragic crash in the Malaysian Grand Prix, will be present in the Valencia paddock for the season finale.
While team principal Fausto Gresini was quoted in the Italian press saying his team had withdrawn from the November 4-6 meeting, the team will attend the event and display Simoncelli’s #58 bike in the garage area as a sign of respect.
The team has yet to decide whether its team’s second rider, Hiroshi Aoyama, or its Moto2 squad will race in the final Grands Prix of the season however.
Simoncelli’s body returned to Italy yesterday ahead of his funeral on Thursday.
