It’s been nearly two months since the passing of Marco Simoncelli, and the loss of the popular Italian motorcycle racer is still ever-present in the minds of MotoGP fans. Nothing proves this point better than a moment at our premiere of Fastest in San Francisco last week, where a collective “Marco!” could be heard as SuperSic’s face filled the big screen of the theater. The holidays surely must be tough for Marco’s family, so perhaps it is appropriate that Ciao Sic, an official coffee table tribute book to Marco Simoncelli, has been released in time for the holidays.
Put together by Gresini Racing, as an homage to the late Marco Simoncelli, the 128 pages of Ciao Sic are filled with photos of the popular Italian rider. A final goodbye to the lovable (and hatable) MotoGP racer, part of the proceeds from Ciao Sic will go to the Marco Simoncelli Foundation. With the prologue written by Simoncelli friend and journalist Paolo Beltramo, Ciao Sic also includes a few lines by Gresini Racing Boss Fausto Fresini, who wrote “Sic, or even better ‘Super Sic’, was extraordinary and in this book you want to remember for his sincere sympathy and smiles you gave to us all.”
Purchases can be made online at letsbookandapp.com for €24.50.
