What a great racer.Suzuka 2003 was tragic.I was over the moon rooting Capirex/Bayliss and Ducati on.
Sete's acknowledgement of Daijiro at Kyalami was great. No one knows how it will all end. Hailwood,Norick Abe immediately spring to mind.
Shoya's sad departure just re - emphasises the fact that even now,this is a gladiatorial sport.
Never forget it.
I'll never forget them.
