Assen WSBK event to go ahead

Icelandic volcano eruption won't prevent the Assen WSBK meeting going ahead as planned
World Superbike Championship organisers have revealed that the upcoming Assen round will go ahead as planned, despite the volcanic eruption in Iceland.

Ash from the Eyjafjallajoekull eruption has already forced the postponement of the MotoGP event in Japan after the grounding of aircraft throughout Europe led to widespread travel disruption.

However, Infront Motor Sports insists the Assen race meeting this weekend will go ahead as planned, with the eruption set to have 'no adverse effect' on the event.

“The bikes are all in Europe, following the last round at Valencia, and so are the riders,” Infront Motor Sports SBK director Paolo Ciabatti said. “There should also be no problems either for the fans, who are mainly local, or from Germany and the UK and who can easily reach Assen by bike or car.

“Many teams are also planning to get there by car as well, so there should be no particular issues for Assen.”

Action will get underway as planned at the Dutch circuit on Friday.
