In the wake of the Grand Prix of Malaysia MotoGP: The plan of "B" for a rain case in the Sepang

Difficult predictable weather conditions in Kuala Lumpur and Sepang in these days off have forced the promoter of MotoGP the Dorna Sports company to think up the plan of "B" for a case of repetition of the situation which has developed in August in Silverstone.

of МОТОГОНКИ.РУ, on November 4, 2018 - Evident confirmation of reality of chances of repetition of a failure of the Grand Prix of Great Britain in Malaysia became Saturday and a long delay of qualifications of MotoGP because of the tropical heavy rain which in a few minutes has turned the first-class track into the river. Even in the Sepang where now, apparently, everything is already provided on a flood case, water didn't manage to leave asphalt and to go to a drainage that has created certain difficulties for pilots of MotoGP. In some sectors even on rain rubber they couldn't punch a water film and risked hydroplaning.

According to the forecast on Sunday, probability of a rain in the first half of day was minimum (less than 10%), but after 12:00 the meteorological station located at the airport of Kuala Lumpur offered as option a heat on long ranges: on the Sepang and the international airport there was a cloud capable to provide up to 14 mm of rainfall within an hour! At the airport about it even the yellow level of threat up to long delays and even cancellations of flights has been announced. So the bases to be afraid for the Grand Prix of Malaysia Dorna had


At choice, the organizer has offered teams two plans: to transfer the schedule, having shifted all events for 2 hours and to begin races at 10:00, or... to spend day according to the standard plan, but in case of a flood, to postpone races to Monday. Considering

that the rain went all night long since Friday on Saturday, and then all night long since Saturday on Sunday, the prospect to be late in the Sepang for 24 hours (and it concerned not only teams, but also numerous personnel, journalists and all - all all) has turned out so unattractive that consent to shift in the schedule has been reached immediately.

"We already in Silverstone were ready for transfer of races next day especially as then there were long days off, - Carmelo Espeleta has noted. - We have very good relations with the Sepang, they have developed long ago, and we could come to a consensus easily. Simply, we have weighed all pros and cons, and have allowed teams to solve. For us, in Dorna, transfer of races within one day - the smallest evil. But we are ready to go for reasonable losses not to cancel an event is the worst option of development for all. The choice, I believe, I was simple".

of P.S. 3 hours later after the finish of the Grand Prix of Malaysia the rain hasn't fallen to the autodrome at all - the huge cloud has avoided the Sepang. Teams packed the belongings, looking at the blue sky. The weather forecast hasn't come true this time.
