Ema Motorsport, the youtuber name of Emanuele Sabatino who spoke passionately about mechanics and cars in his videos, was found dead yesterday in his workshop in Broni (Pavia). His wife made it known through social media. “Yesterday afternoon – reads the post – Ema suddenly died. The sad announcement was made by his wife, children and the EmaMotorsport team. The funeral will be held on Monday 13 December at 11 at the church of San Francesco in Siziano “.
Sabatino was 45 years old. According to preliminary information, he took his own life.
A car repairman since he was twenty, he had initially experienced some setbacks that had forced him to close the shop. After attending marketing and communication courses, he opened a new workshop in Broni and, shortly after, he presented himself on social networks to explain in a simple, immediate, understandable way to everyone how to deal with the most common repairs or how to recognize a job done in rule of art. Thanks to the innate sympathy and ease of explanations, success had been fast, and had led him to garner hundreds of thousands of followers on YouTube, Facebook and Instagram.
He had published his latest video on YouTube (a channel with over 270,000 subscribers) on 8 December, entitled “Hydrogen, injector wash and engine oil wash in one go”.
Many messages of condolence from those who followed him with affection and passion. “Ema you will always remain in our hearts, you have been a source of inspiration and nourishment for the passion that united us all” writes Beker. “You always put a lot of passion into what you did and always seemed happy” comments Luca Mazzalai. “I hope that up there you will be able to travel as you have never done before” writes Lorenzo Pagliai.
