The British weather has interrupted the Corona Extra Superbike World Championship at Silverstone with the race organisers calling the second race off due to the amount of standing water on the track.

Rain fell for most of the day and the first race saw only thirteen riders out of twenty one finish the race. All the riders agreed that the right decision was made as the only person in the race who could see clearly was the man at the very front, anyone behind was blinded by spray and unable to determine the amount of water on the track leading to aqua planning.

The next round of the championship will take place at the reversed Misano track in three weeks time where hopefully the Italian weather will be more conducive to racing!
