    P1 drivers may request a specific number provided that the application is endorsed by the FIA and the
    Promoter. Number 1 may only be chosen by the World Champion driver of the previous season. Requested
    numbers may not be greater than 99.

    In the world of MotoGP (and WSBK), number 69 was used by ex world champion Nicky Hayden.
    Nicky was killed whilst cycle training a couple of years ago.
    I'm not sure if the number was retired in motorcycle racing as a mark of respect, but maybe it can be used in other series (maybe in respect for Nicky rather than any sexual connotation)

    Personal numbers seem important in other motorsports, like Rossi 46 & Block 43.

    More for image and marketing than anything else.

    Or - as Hayden's dad joked - as the 69 still could be read properly when it's upside down!
