The first round of the British Masters series was set to take place at Hawkstone this weekend but due to the weather they have been forced to postpone the event.
The following statement was posted on social media:
“In the interest of safety both to the competitors and their families who in many circumstances are travelling long distances over roads that have become dangerous due to the worsening weather conditions we have taken the decision to postpone the first round of the Bridgestone British Masters 2018 MotoX Championship until a later date.
We are extremely conscious of marshals and staff who would also be trackside for many hours in temperatures well below zero together with the ground for the riders being extremely frozen adding to the injury risk.
We will update the 360 + competitors in due course with the replacement date.
We trust you will all understand this decision.
Clerk of Course”
