250cc Red Bull Indianapolis Grand Prix cancelled due to safety concerns

250cc Red Bull Indianapolis Grand Prix cancelled due to safety concerns

No 250cc race action will take place at Indianapolis, after a decision made on grounds of safety.

There will be no 250cc Red Bull Indianapolis Grand Prix at the IMS circuit in 2008, with the scheduled race cancelled due to safety concerns. The contest had previously been rescheduled for after the MotoGP race but, with that event red flagged, the decision was made not to run the quarter-litre bikes in any capacity.

The remnants of Hurricane Ike hit raceday at the new Indianapolis circuit on Sunday afternoon, after a difficult weekend of mixed conditions. The next round of the 250cc series will be held at Motegi, on September 28th.
