Aragon Pays Tribute to Shoya Tomizawa

Moto2 News

The MotoGP Paddock gathered on the start/finish line on Sunday morning for a minute’s silence in memory of the Japanese motorcycle racer.

On Sunday morning at the Motorland Aragón circuit the MotoGP teams assembled to pay respects to Japanese rider Shoya Tomizawa, who passed away two weeks ago at Misano.

The sun was shining down as Shoya’s Technomag-CIP team placed his racebike on the starting grid and a minute’s silence was then held in honour of the 19 year-old, whose number 48 has been retired from the Moto2 World Championship and whose family will receive the Michel Metraux Trophy at the next round at Motegi.
