Vito Ippolito, FIM President said: “We are
extremely saddened by the death of Shoya Tomizawa, a charming and
talented rider with a promising future, which reminds us that our
sport, in spite of a reduced number of fatal accidents in recent years,
is not without risk for its competitors.

“The FIM and Dorna,
along with all the protagonists of our sport, have worked enormously in
recent years for the improvement in active and passive security of our
sport in order to ensure that all the circuits and facilities used in
our sport achieve the highest possible level of safety.

“I have
been in contact with the Race Direction to understand the circumstances
of the accident and I know that everything that could have been done
was effectively carried out to save the life of this rider. However,
the dynamics of the accidents that take place in our sport are often
unpredictable. We must continue to research and analyse to minimize
them.

“In these difficult times that plunge our sport into
mourning, I reiterate my heartfelt condolences to the family and
friends of Shoya Tomizawa as well as to the Japanese Federation.”
