Honda is mourning

Japanese MotoGP rider Daijiro Kato has died as a result of an accident at Suzuka on April 6. The 2001 World Champion of the 250cc series was in his second season in the premier motorcycle racing series and was a big hope for the Honda company.

Sadly he has now lost his fight for survival. Many of the Honda engineers in F1 come from a background of motorcycle racing and the loss will be felt heavily at Imola today.
