Marc Márquez He was able to meet one of his biggest fans in Italy in the run-up to the San Marino GP. Valentino, which curiously, in addition to the name, shares with Rossi his town, Tavullia, fulfilled his dream of power be with your favorite driver on the grid and talk to him for a while in an encounter that you will hardly forget.
Despite the fact that his entire family is a follower of ’46’ – hence his parents named him Valentino, like Rossi– The little boy is clear that Márquez is his favorite, as their faces showed of emotion when they shared a few moments with the Spanish rider.
They had a great chat, talking about scars, racing and rain. Then grabbed a selfie and couple of signed sliders as well!

It all started with a email that the official Márquez fan club received on Saturday morning, from a fan hoping to meet the pilot off the circuit. “I’m in Misano and I want a photo with you and to be able to hug you. Yesterday I met Pecco (Bagnaia), Maverick, Suzuki … only you are missing“, he asked in the letter, which the Repsol Honda team has shared.
Said and done, since little Valentino was able to exchange a few minutes with his great idol, with whom talked, hugged, took photos and ended up taking a gift dedicated of Márquez. “They had a great conversation, they talked about scars, racing and the rain. Afterwards, he took a selfie and a couple of signed protectors,” said the team that they hope to “give a good show for Valentino and all the fans at the GP of San Marino”.

After the meeting, Valentino was asked “Why do you support Márquez?”, especially with his whole family wearing Rossi’s jerseys and having been named in his honor, and his answer is pure reality: “I do not know. That’s destiny“.
