To honour the memory of late “Kentucky Kid”, an emotional ceremony was held today at the Circuit of Americas retiring Nicky’s number, 69, from the premier class racing. Attending the ceremony was attended by Jorge Viegas, FIM president; Carmelo Ezpeleta, Dorna CEO; and Nicky’s family members and friends.
Born in school of petrol heads, raised practically drinking gasoline and smoked by the burning tires. Left the 4 wheels and took up 2 wheels as a direct result from mid age crisis. It's little crazy but am happy about it.
