In memory of Shoya Tomizawa
The 19 year old Moto2 rider Shoya Tomizawa past away after suffering a horrific crash during the San Marino Grand Prix this Sunday.
Tomizawa was travelling at full speed when he fell off on a corner and was hit violently by the bikes of Alex De Angelis and Scott Redding, who both tumbled but was relatively unhurt.
Tomizawa was immediately taken to hospital, where he died from cranial, thoracic and abdominal trauma at 2.20pm local time.
Tomizawa won earlier this season in Qatar and was seventh in the overall standings.
