MCE British Superbike race two postponed

Monday, April 09 2012

The second MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship race has been postponed at Brands Hatch  following track contamination at the circuit.

The previous Motorpoint British Supersport Championship was declared a result after several riders crashed unhurt and was subsequently red flagged. The Racesafe marshals and officials worked hard for an extensive period of time to clear the contamination which extended around the whole 1.2 mile circuit.

The MCE BSB riders then were given an eight minute free practice session to evaluate the track conditions.  However following a unanimous agreement the race will now be postponed to a later round. The Monster Energy Motostar British Championship will also be rescheduled. 

MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship Series Director Stuart Higgs said: "We have worked very hard to clean the track after the contamination, the second such situation over the weekend,  but it has been a unanimous decision by the riders, teams and officials to reschedule this race to another event. It is a terribly frustrating situation but safety remains paramount."
