The 46th Macau Grand prix has been postponed until tomorrow due to rain.
The event has been put back by 24 hours and is rescheduled for a 4.15pm start (8.15am UK time).
Traditionally, the infamous road race does not run in anything other than totally dry conditions in the interests of safety.
Michael Rutter will start from pole position after taking the top spot on the SMT Honda from team-mate John McGuinness, with Riders Ducati ace Martin Jessopp rounding out the front row of the grid.
The rain began to fall after the riders completed their warm-up lap and were forming up on the grid.
Rutter is chasing a record eighth success at Macau after surpassing Ron Haslam as the most decorated rider ever in the history of the event as he claimed his seventh victory in 2011.
Tomorrow's race will be held over 10 laps.
