And Thursday’s Race Session (16/05/2019) :
After glorious weather all week Saturday Race Day came and the good weather left. From before 8:00am the rain set in and truthfully never really let up all day.
The result was – initially – red flags, delays, more delays, a helicopter taking down power lines (true story) and then eventually a great afternoon and early evening’s racing.
It was about 2:40pm by the time the supersports started for the third time that the schedule started to move. The rain continued, but so did the motorcycles and we were really treated to some awesome races.
Thank goodness for the contingency legislation, which meant the roads could remain closed until 9pm. Unfortunately we ran out of time and light to run the feature Superbike race, which was cancelled for safety reasons – and that although disappointing for all the super bike fans – made perfect sense and was absolutely the right call to make.
