Professional Motorsport Racing is both dangerous & exciting. That’s why most of us love it. Be it cars, motorcycles, boats or anything with an engine, we enjoy watching the competition and risk these pilots attempt…as long as the “rules of sportsmanship” are followed.
HOWEVER, there are lines you DO NOT CROSS and if you do, harsh penalties will undoubtedly come your way.
Italian motorcycle racer Romano Fenati was black flagged during the Moto2 race in San Marino, Italy this past weekend. Although he was suspended for the next 2 races, further discipline, I am sure will haunt the 22-year old racer.
While close, exciting, competitive racing is expected & accepted on track, incidents like what happened Sunday have no place when you are running 140+ MPH or any speed, anywhere. The video below shows what happened.
Below are comments from his Race Team:
“We can communicate that the Marinelli Snipers Team shall terminate the contract with the rider Romano Fenati, from now on, for his unsporting, dangerous and damaging conduct for the image of all,”
“With extreme regret, we have to note that his irresponsible act endangered the life of another rider and can’t be apologised for in any way. The rider, from this moment, will not participate in any more races with the Marinelli Snipers team.”
I am sure it was a tough decision for the Marinelli Snipers Team, but Well Done!
