WorldSBK Race One at Assen Cancelled Due to Bad Weather
The Race is Rescheduled for Tomorrow, Superpole Race Canceled
This is a press release from WorldSBK
Assen, The Netherlands (April 13, 2019) – Unpredictable weather conditions force Saturday’s WorldSBK Race 1 to be postponed to Sunday
Following severe weather conditions on Saturday afternoon during the Motul Dutch Round in Assen, the difficult decision was taken to postpone WorldSBK Race 1 to Sunday.
Following a snow storm hitting the TT Circuit Assen early in the afternoon during the WorldSBK grid, Race 1 start had been delayed twice. However, weather conditions continued to deteriorate forcing to reschedule the race, at 11:00 AM on Sunday morning, to guarantee riders’ safety.
Sunday’s new schedule will include WorldSBK Race 1 at 11:00 AM LT (GMT +2.00) and WorldSBK Race 2 will start regularly at 14:00 LT (GMT +2.00). Thus, cancelling the Tissot Superpole Race.
Starting grid positions for WorldSBK Race 1 and Race 2 will be following the results of today’s WorldSBK Tissot Superpole.
The rest of the schedule remains unchanged. Click HERE for the new schedule.
