In today's MotoGP at Malaysia... RIP Marco Simoncelli (the guy in the white leathers sliding facedown along the track....)  :-\

2 deads in 2 weeks.. that is scary news.. Sad weekend AGAIN for the motorsports..
I can see how that killed him.. the other two just drove over him.. they had no chance to evade that oncoming danger.. His helmet even flew off!

*EDIT*
OMG... I just realized.. it's Simoncelli.. it was one my favorite guys in the MotoGP, not that I watch that a lot.. meh!

A great up & coming Moto GP talent & nice guy lost. R.I.P. Super Sic. Vaya con Dios...

You have to feel for Colin Edwards & Valentino Rossi as well. They must feel terrible.  :(  (Marco & Valentino were big mates as well.)

That's my thought exactly .. They were probably the ones "killing" him.. without any intentions.. they couldn't do anything about it..

Looks like "Dorna Sports" is clamping down on any footage being posted online... that don't work either.
