January 20, in Coriano, the birthday stars of the MotoGP of Italy – Marco Simoncelli opened the first charity project, presented by Mark Simoncelli Foundation (SIC58 Foundation), headed by the father of the racer Paolo.
RACING.RU, 21 January 2019 – “Marco Simoncelli” in via della Repubblica, Sant’andrea in Besanigo, two kilometers from Coriano, where he was born and raised racer, appeared on a low hill overlooking the Adriatic sea. Before, there was the boarding house “Santa Maria”, which, however, fell into disrepair and was abandoned by the owners. The Foundation bought land and invested in the reconstruction of the building, which took almost 5 years. The project was invested all the funds that Paolo Simoncelli and SIC58 Foundation managed to attract part of the Spurtl&232;da58, Motoraduni, and Happy Birthday, SIC!
Now the “Marco Simoncelli” is a day centre within the programme “Dopo di Noi” (literally “what will remain after us”) for families with children with severe disabilities. The Foundation gave the House to manage the commune of Monte Tauro di Coriano under the control of the administration of Rimini.
There is a day care centre, rehabilitation area, a specialized and equipped swimming pool, relaxation area, gym with exercise equipment and a Playground for the little ones. Rimini in the framework of the programme “Dopo di Noi” provided the House the most qualified personnel.
Paolo Simoncelli continues to work in Motorsport with his own racing project SIC58 Racing in Moto Grand Prix (Moto3 class), as well as the Italian championship. The Foundation is sponsoring a team that became the first step in the professional career for four young Italian pilots.
Marco Simoncelli, the Gresini Honda MotoGP pilot tragically died on the Malaysian Grand Prix on 23 October 2011. The accident occurred on the first lap of the race: world champion in the 250-kubova class, the rising star of Italian Motorsport was prepared to take the first victory in MotoGP, but made a mistake and fell under the wheels rivals. The doctors were unable to save the life of 24-year-old athlete. Marco died without regaining consciousness at a Mobile Clinic. For 43 minutes from the time of the accident and to confirm the sad fact that Dorna Sports is not interrupted live coverage of the Sepang, I was driving to the tragedy of the millions of viewers who have experienced it. 20 January 2019 Marco Simoncelli would have turned 32 years old today he’d be considered a “veteran” on a par with Valentino Rossi, Dani Pedrosa, Jorge Lorenzo, retired Casey Stoner and others.
