Valencia honour for Simoncelli

NEWLY-CROWNED MotoGP world champion Casey Stoner says the best way to honour the late Marco Simoncelli is to try to ensure a thrilling season-ending race at Valencia this Sunday.

Simoncelli died in a horrific accident at the Malaysian Grand Prix on October 23.

The Honda rider was regarded as one of the up-and-coming stars of the sport and a potential future rival for Stoner.

The Australian, who won his second world title when he captured his fifth straight Australian Grand Prix recently, is preparing for a tough weekend in Spain.
