Further delays at Macau

Further rain forces schedule changes at Macau
By Barry Russell

Rain continued to play havoc with the schedule for the Macau Motorcycle Grand Prix.

Overnight rain left the track soaking at 7:15 this morning, making the running of the delayed qualifying session impossible.

After lengthy consideration and as the rain stayed away this morning, a source close to Race Control revealed that qualifying would start at 3:30pm, the time originally planned for the race.

The race is now scheduled to run at 1:45pm tomorrow (Sunday), with a 30 minute warm-up session from 7:30am.

With no further rain forecast for the weekend, the frustrated bike teams are hoping that they can get out and finish the job they travelled to the Chinese gambling capital to do.

It is necessary to install and remove additional safety barriers for the bikes for each session.
