The MCE British Superbike track action has been delayed today after severe storms at Knockhill badly damage the circuit which requires immediate and essential resurfacing work.

Heavy rain storms, thunder and lightning had been forecast for much of Friday night continuing into Saturday morning (3-4 July) in the Dunfermline area and upon inspection by Race Direction earlier this morning it was discovered large chunks of top-side track at turn one had been heavily broken up.

Emergency repairs have been ongoing and work had been due to be completed by 11.00AM, however, further delays have been announced which has pushed the schedule even further back.

After a brief track inspection at 12:15PM it was declared unfit to race due to heavy fog.

"The repair work is ongoing and the envisaged 11:30 start will not be possible - the time schedule is further amended subject to a satisfactory track inspection," an updated statement from race direction read.

Therefore, a new schedule is expected to be drafted with British Superbike FP3 to run between much later than planned, while qualifying will remain unaffected and run at 16.05-16.59 to fit in with TV schedules.

"Motostar, Superstock 1000 and Superstock 600 class qualifying practice 2 sessions are cancelled with grid positions established from yesterday's qualifying practice results, held in dry conditions," the statement confirmed.
