A tragic accident happened on the actual race day - Sunday, 23 October 2011. Italian motorcyclist Marco Simoncelli died in a horrific crash at the MotoGP race in Sepang F1 Circuit, Malaysia. The 24-year-old was flung from his bike and skidded across the track, before apparently being hit by competitors Colin Edwards and Valentino Rossi.
The race was stopped on lap two. The spectators were unknown of the tragic accident and kept waiting for almost one hour. Finally, the organizer confirmed the death and the race was cancelled.
