Grand Prix of Japan postponed

Monday, 19 April 2010

Due to the air travel issues caused across Europe by the volcanic eruption in Iceland, the decision has been taken to postpone the race weekend at Motegi which was scheduled to take place from April 23rd-25th.

The recent volcanic eruption in Iceland has caused an ash cloud that has halted all international air travel in and out of Europe.

This situation has prompted the Grand Prix Permanent Bureau which is comprised of FIM President Mr Vito Ippolito and Dorna Sports CEO Mr Carmelo Ezpeleta, with the agreement of the Grand Prix Promoter, Mobilityland Corporation, to postpone the Grand Prix of Japan which was originally scheduled for April 25th, 2010.

The Grand Prix Permanent Bureau has subsequently proposed a rescheduled date for the event of October 3rd, 2010 to the FIM.
