FP2 sessions cancelled due to track conditions

FP2 sessions cancelled due to track conditions

Track conditions following the first Moto2 practice session at the Dutch TT were deemed too dangerous to hold FP2 for any of the classes, despite a team of cleanup trucks spending close to two hours scrubbing oil spilled over one third of the circuit.

The first day of practice at the Iveco TT Assen was shortened substantially when the afternoon practice session for all three categories was cancelled. The heavy rain during the first practice sessions claimed many riders in crashes, particularly in the Moto2 class, in which Italian rider Alex Baldolini inadvertently left a trail of oil over a considerable portion of the track when he reentered following a crash.

The clean up work initially delayed the start of FP2 125cc session, which was due to begin at 1:15 p.m., and then finally forced a full cancellation of the afternoon sessions when the MotoGP FP2 was unable to start.

The action resumes tomorrow, with Friday morning practice sessions beginning at 9:15 a.m..
