A very personal and characterful tribute celebrating the life of a much-loved man who was one of MotoGP's up-and-coming stars. A colourful portrait by Simoncelli's parents, supported by contributions from stars such as Valentino Rossi. Contains over 200 unique photographs, including moments captured by family and friends as well as striking images from his racing life. Covers his entire racing career: his first 125cc race win in 2004; his 250cc World Championship title in 2008; his arrival in MotoGP in 2010 with the Honda Gresini Team and subsequent rise to stardom. The year he died, 2011, saw him fulfil his promise, with a maiden pole position (Catalunya, Spain) and best finish of second place (Phillip Island, Australia).
