Dan Wheldon & Marco Simoncelli

Oct 23rd 2011

A dark week for Motorsports. The racing community loses two drivers from one Sunday to the next. Fellow Brit IndyCar Driver Dan Wheldon, in his prime - with so much more to give, and Italian MotoGP Rider Marco Simoncelli - so early in his career.

Dan Wheldon : 1978 - 2011

Dan Wheldon (1978 - 2011)

Thoughts and sympathy to the Wheldon family and friends at this most difficult time.

"He was an extremely talented driver. As a British guy, who not only went over to the States but who twice won the Indy 500, he was an inspirational guy and someone that every racing driver looked up to with respect and admiration. (Lewis Hamilton)"

"I have so many good memories of racing with Dan in the early 90s, a true fighter. We've lost a legend in our sport but also a great guy. (Jenson Button)"

Marco Simoncelli : 1978 - 2011

Marco Simoncelli (1987 - 2011)

Our thoughts go out to the family and friends of MotoGP Rider Marco Simoncelli.

"Marco Simoncelli, a rising MotoGP star, died Sunday at the same Malaysian circuit where the Italian won the 250cc world title in 2008. He was 24.

Nicknamed ‘Super Sic’ and sporting a mop of curly hair, Simoncelli was predicted by many to be a future MotoGP world champion. He died a week after Indianapolis 500 winner Dan Wheldon was killed in a 15-car accident in the IndyCar finale at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway." (Associated Press)
