After a meeting between IRTA officials and the MotoGP riders, a decision has been made to cancel the GoPro British Grand Prix due to track conditions being deemed too unsafe.
After the rain came down on Saturday and track conditions caused delays, the decision was taken to change the schedule for Sunday at the GoPro British Grand Prix. The MotoGP™ race was rescheduled for 11:30 local time (GMT +1), with the hour chosen according to the latest weather reports available at the time.
On Sunday, Warm Up sessions began at 9:00, with MotoGP out first, and the weather began to steadily worsen. By the time riders were on the grid awaiting lights out for the race at 11:30, they were worse still and the decision was taken to delay the start.
That began a long day of delays, with conditions continually monitored, until a decision was reached: conditions were not safe to race in and the track surface was too dangerous in the rain.
Racing was therefore cancelled and MotoGP will now head for Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli for the next round.
