Have you seen this Simoncelli tribute?

Limited number of official 'Marco Simoncelli Supporter' T-Shirts and Caps, printed prior to his tragic death and as worn by Valentino Rossi, made available to the public.
Grand Prix Legends have a limited number of official 'Marco Simoncelli Supporter' T-shirts and Caps available.

The T-shirt is the same as that worn by Valentino Rossi, during MotoGP's tribute to his good friend Simoncelli at the Valencia season finale (pictured).

Grand Prix Legends explains the circumstances behind the merchandise as follows:

“For the Malaysian race, Marco's team was planning to launch a new website and supporters' club.

“With the tragedy that unfolded that weekend, those plans have been shelved, although Marco's father, Paolo, still wants there to be a range of Simoncelli merchandise in 2012 in memory of his son and, as we speak, there are discussions going on about the creation of some form of charitable foundation, along the lines of Ayrton Senna's.

“For the Malaysian Grand Prix, Marco's team had produced a new T-shirt and cap to launch the Supporters' Club, but given that this is now not going to happen, we were asked if we would offer the small quantity of merchandise that had been produced, to his British fans.

“This we agreed to do. The T-shirt is, as you may recall, the T-shirt that Valentino wore in tribute to his close friend on the parade lap at Valencia.

“The quantity available, of course, is very limited and it will remain so, as we are told that these pieces will never be remade.

“That weekend in Malaysia was, of course, a tragedy; a tragedy for his family and friends but also for the entire sport. Characters like Marco don't come along very often, especially ones with his racing mentality and never give up attitude.

“And so it is with some humility that we find ourselves in a position to offer his fans this exclusive T-shirt and Cap.”

The T-shirt and Cap are being sold as a set. The Large size T-shirt is already sold out, but four other sizes are still available.

Totally agree with the comments already made. I have just purchased a Steve Whyman Simmo canvas at a cost of nearly 300 quid but all profits from this are going to the Simoncelli foundation charity, wouldn't have bought it if this had not of been the case. He produced 58 in total and we'll soon know how much has been raised as all have sold out. This is what should be happening across the board, there should be no profiteering from anyones death let alone Simmo. We have 3 Whyman canvasses in our home and are proud to have our latest one up on the wall. Oh and due to the fact he has done this for the foundation i would recommend you look up his work as he has a website with his name and a .com after it. If you haven't seen them before please go have a look as they are awesome
