Misano circuit renamed in honor of Marco Simoncelli
Although Misano isn't where Simoncelli lost his life – that tragedy unfolded at Sepang in Malaysia – he was known and loved as a local hero at the Italian track. That's why its owners have announced that it is being named Marco Simoncelli International Circuit in his honor.
It's a fitting tribute, and follows the recent decision of motorsport constructor Dallara to name its new IndyCar chassis DW12 in honor of the late Dan Wheldon.
