Dainese and Rossi have collaborated to pay homage to Marco Simoncelli, the young and aggressive MotoGP rider who passed way unfortunately at the very young age. Valentino Rossi lined up at his home circuit at Mugello wearing a special Dainese suit. Rossi showed his support to the Marco Simoncelli foundation, an organisation dedicated to the memory of his friend Marco byt wearing the jacket with the hashtag #thisforSIC58 embroidered on the back.
The suit will be worn by Rossi during the race weekend and will be put up for auction on Wednesday 18 June at 1pm. The information about the jacket and the auction process is available at Dainese’s official website.
The winner of the auction will be supporting the the Santa Marta project, a day centre for the disabled that the Simoncelli Foundation is building near Coriano, Marco’s home town. Rossi’s suit is the first of many original Dainese products worn by world champion riders that will be available on dainese.com.
#thisforSIC58 was created in honour of Marco Simoncelli and to support charitable projects backed by the Foundation dedicated to his memory.
Each of the items purchased on dainese.com will be delivered to the lucky winners in special display cases, complete with a signature by its first famous owner.
