Marco Simoncelli – Horrific Accident MotoGp Malaysia 2011

The Moto-GP race at Malaysia today was cancelled due to a horrific accident, resulting in the death of Marco Simoncelli.

His death comes a week after those of Baja Racer Rick Husemen and fellow Brit Dan Wheldon at Indy 500.

The horrific accident happened on the second lap of the Malaysian GP Circuit where his bike lost control of the Honda and catapulted on to oncoming riders Colin Edwards and Valentino Rossi.

Condolences go out to the family of Marco Simoncelli and friends and colleagues.

I am not going to show you the video as I feel personally its bad taste to publish the death of anyone including Gaddafi.

Lexus LFA Nurburgring Edition Chief Test/Engineer Hiromu Naruse Dies in Crash.

Yesterday on the roads near the Nurburgring, has cost the life of the infamous Toyota/Gazoo chief test driver  and engineer Hiromu Naruse.

The 67-year old was driving a Lexus LFA Nurburgring Edition when it crashed into another prototype the BMW 3-Series.

The BMW test drivers, age 34 and 33 years old were also injured, with one in critical condition.

Hiromu Naruse started his career with Toyota in 1963,  And Contributed in important role in developing the Lexus LFA and was a key member of the Gazoo racing team at this years ADAC 24h Race.

Perhaps a rename of the “Nurburgring Edition”  is called for  perhaps simply the “Naruse Nurburgring Edition” would be a fitting tribute for the historic man and marque.

Our condolences go out to all at Lexus and Gazoo Racing.
