"Shoya was the sort of person that when you met him a little piece of you fell in love with him. His energy and enthusiasm was deeply infectious" (Azi Farni)


Shoya était le genre de personnage qui lorsque vous l'aviez rencontré il y avait quelque chose en vous qui tombait amoureux de lui. Son énergie et son enthousiasme était profondément contagieux (Azi Farni)

Now Shoya's bike stand in the room with all his personnal trophee

At what would have been the popular Japanese rider’s home race, his parents were given the Suter Moto2™ spec racer in full Tomizawa guise, just like the one he raced on in 2010. The team prepared the machine in remembrance of the number 48, who is still very much missed in the GP paddock.

Alain Bronec, le CIP et Nobby Ueda ont eu l’honneur de remettre à la famille de Shoya Tomizawa, qui était réunie à l’occasion du Grand Prix du Japon, un cadeau très spécial en guise d’un nouvel hommage. En présence de Carmelo Ezpeleta, CEO de Dorna Sports, des membres des teams Technomag-CIP et Technomag-CIP-TSR, les parents de Shoya, ses frères et ses grands parents ont reçu avec joie des mains d’Alain Bronec et de Nobby Ueda, une des Moto2™ de 2010 avec laquelle Shoya roulait.
L’émotion était palpable et les parents de Shoya ont chaleureusement remercié le CIP pour cette moto qu’ils vont conserver en mémoire de leur fils.
