At the recent Milan bike show we met with members of Marco’s management team responsible for his fan club and merchandise programme.

For the Malaysian race, Marco’s team was planning to launch a new website and supporters’ club.

With the tragedy that unfolded that weekend, those plans have been shelved, although Marco’s father, Paolo, still wants there to be a range of Simoncelli merchandise in 2012 in memory of his son and, as we speak, there are discussions going on about the creation of some form of charitable foundation, along the lines of Ayrton Senna’s.

For the Malaysian Grand Prix, Marco’s team had produced a new T-shirt and cap to launch the Supporters’ Club, but given that this is now not going to happen, we were asked if we would offer the small quantity of merchandise that had been produced, to his British fans.

This we agreed to do. The T-shirt is, as you may recall, the T-shirt that Valentino wore in tribute to his close friend on the parade lap at Valencia.

The quantity available, of course, is very limited and it will remain so, as we are told that these pieces will never be remade.

That weekend in Malaysia was, of course, a tragedy; a tragedy for his family and friends but also for the entire sport. Characters like Marco don’t come along very often, especially ones with his racing mentality and never give up attitude.

And so it is with some humility that we find ourselves in a position to offer his fans this exclusive T-shirt and cap. Buy the Marco Simoncelli supporter T-shirt and cap here.

Today we have launched the new ranges of merchandise for top Moto GP and British Superbike teams on our site, including Honda Gresini, Rizla Suzuki, Tech 3 Yamaha, Worx Suzuki and Buildbase Kawasaki.

The 2010 seasons have just started up with some great races from both the Moto GP and the British Superbike series. With a thrilling championship in prospect in both sports, now is a great time to get yourself some team merchandise and show your support for your favourite team.

In both the Honda Gresini range and the Rizla Suzuki range, there is a great selection of teamwear sporting the latest logos and badges but also a couple of fashion items for those who like something a bit more casual! There is the Honda Gresini San Carlo hoodie and San Carlo T-shirt.

Other top items for this season include the Tech 3 Yamaha cap, jacket and Tech 3 ladies T-shirt. The Worx Suzuki bucket hat is a great item for those who want something different from the usual baseball cap. We also have great rider caps for Rizla Suzuki riders Loris Capirossi and Alvaro Bautista.
