It was a matter of time and it didn’t take long for Marc Márquez to remember Tomás Díaz-Valdés, the veteran motor journalist who died of the coronavirus, on social media. Both met a few weeks ago in an act of Repsol and this is precisely what the MotoGP champion remembers in his tribute tweet.
“I remember the phrase you said to me as if it were yesterday. Enjoy your passion and make us enjoy. I will do so. Rest in peace, ”wrote Marc, in a beautiful tribute to a pioneer of motorcycling information, who was one of those who helped Ángel Nieto fulfill his dream of being a professional pilot.
Tomás Díaz Valdés always defined himself as the veteran scholarship of motor journalism and he was not without reason, because despite the years he maintained the illusion of the first day. The young pilots were very fond of him, as it has been shown in this message from Márquez on social networks.
