Tommy Aquino dies after accident

American road racer Tommy Aquino passed away after an off-season motocross accident in California, Crash.net recently reported. He was riding with family and friends at the time. 

A former competitor in AMA Pro Racing, the 21-year-old was a race winner in Britain’s National Superstock series last year when he rode for the GR Motorsport WD-40 team. He was going to remain with the team for the upcoming season with hopes of moving up to the British Superbike class. 

His team released this statement: “It is with massive regret that we confirm the extremely sad passing of our friend and rider Tommy Aquino. Tommy was a great asset to our team and a welcome addition to our family. The thoughts of all our team members, sponsors and friends are with [his family] as this tragic loss is shared.”
