The second British Superbike Championship race at Knockhill has been cancelled after inclement weather forced organisers to curtail the day's action.

Race two did get underway just as rain began to fall on the warm-up lap, but a multi-bike pile-up triggered when Simon Andrews came off his Kawasaki through turn one would prompt a lengthy clean-up effort.

While the rain would subside, the wind began to pick up, prompting officials to call time of the day's activities in the interests of safety.

Nonetheless, the race will get to run in two weeks time at Snetterton with the same grid order.

It comes on a day when weather played havoc with the race schedule, with the first BSB race being delayed by 90 minutes following a torrential downpour just two laps in.

Michael Rutter, who won the first race, was due to start on pole position for race two.
