Rain stops play for Moto2™ and Moto3™ in Qatar

First day of testing for the lower classes hit by weather

Day 1 of the second and final Official Test for Moto2™ and Moto3™ - underway at Losail International Circuit ahead of the first Grand Prix – saw rain call off action as the desert weather went against stereotypes.

The day was officially declared over at 19:30 local time (GMT +3).

Following some private tests and the first Official outing of the year at the Circuito de Jerez, the test is the last chance teams and riders in the lower classes have to work on setup and get ready for the coming season – with the unseasonable rain robbing riders of valuable track time.

Day 2 of three gets underway on Saturday from 15:00 local time.
