CHARLOTTE (United States of America), 02 September 2016 – Unfortunately the tail end of Hurricane Hermine that hit the Florida state last night has drifted across and caught Charlotte where the penultimate round of the FIM Motocross World Championship was supposed to burst into life tonight. Due to the rain that has fallen and is scheduled to fall throughout the day today, the event management have made the decision to post-pone today’s action, until 1:30pm tomorrow, Saturday 3rd September.

The spectacular man-made track here at The Dirt Track, Charlotte Motor Speedway, has been sealed and covered with plastic in order to protect the dirt. Rain has been forecasted all day today, but will stop later this evening. The water will be drained off the track as soon as possible and early tomorrow morning MXGP’s track crew will head out onto the circuit and start turning the dirt over so that the dry soil is on top. The track is expected to be in perfect condition and the weather forecaster is looking bright and sunny, we can all look forward to a brilliant day of action packed motocross.
Due to the change in timetable, there will be no qualifying races tomorrow, only Free Practice and Timed Practice, and then straight into the main events. The Timed Practice sessions will be LIVE on www.mxgp-tv.com.
Also don’t miss the Studio Show with special guests Cooper Webb, Jorge Prado Garcia and Darian Sanayei, LIVE and FREE to view TODAY, Friday 02 September, at 4:45pm local time on www.mxgp-tv.com.
