So sad to hear Shoya succumbed to his injuries.  I feared for the worst when I saw the crash, hoped for the best but knew this news was all too likely.  Reminded me a lot of Craig Jones' crash a few years back.

Bright light of the MotoGp family went out today, but I for one along with many others I hope will remember Shoya like we do all the others.  Especially Daijiro who was remembered only on Thursday of last week at a special event at Misano.

RIP Shoya 'Happy Smiler' Tomizawa

1 year older than me.

Bloody hell. Yet to see the Moto2 and 800s races as I was with some family. Got a text from my mate saying he'd passed away.

I'd never heard of Shoya before this season but I took an instant liking to him at Qatar. Enthusiasm, happiness, a boy living his dream. 1 feckin' year older than me. Somewhat puts it into perspective.

I for one will miss him in the paddock.

It seems the BBC have done the right thing and removed the replays from iPlayer.

marshall investigation needed!

everything about this accident was absolutely awful, from the crash itself to the unforgiveable marshalling.

ive just sent an email to    asking if an investigation will be held into the way the situation and riders were handled.

it might just be me but i thought marshalls were there to help riders and not just help the race continue!

he was always a gentlemen on screen and deserved to be tended to soo much better. that sort of marshalling should not happen in todays health and safety standards!! i genuinly feel sick to my stomach about it and something needs to be done................

R.I.P shoya..................
