Honda to present Simoncelli's father with RC212V

7 July 2012

Honda Racing Corporation will present Marco Simoncelli's father with two special bikes during next weekend's Italian MotoGP at Mugello.

Paolo Simoncelli will receive Marco's RC212V race machine - an extremely rare gesture - and also a 'Super SIC' inspired Honda CBR1000RR.

The bikes will be presented by Shuhei Nakamoto, HRC Executive-Vice President, and Minoru Kato, Honda Europe Motorcycle Division Director.

The special edition Honda CBR will be auctioned off to raise money for The Marco Simoncelli Foundation: http://www.marcosimoncellifondazione.it/

Former 250cc world champion Simoncelli lost his life during a racing incident at Sepang last October.

The Italian was in his second season of MotoGP, during which he had claimed his first poles and podiums, and had been a Honda rider since joining the premier-class.
