Moto3 Japan Race Warmup Results

Well, it WAS only sort of a damp track…


Moto3 Japan Race Warmup Results.  Near two hour delay summary: 

Andrea Migno’s (SKY Racing Team VR46) incontinent KTM soiled the better of half of Motegi with motor oil (brand unconfirmed, rumors obviously speculate Motul, the event’s sponsor), bringing out the red flag, a platoon of cleaning staff with an absolutely astounding showcase assortment of brooms, track cleaning and scrubbing machines, solvents, blowers, plus the mandatory tonnage of kitty litter and cement dust.

FIM – Dorna safety officers Uncini and Capirossi, utilize the internationally approved, phenomenally accurate, precise and time proven ‘drag hand on track surface here and there with occasional sniff of fingers – but no licking!’ method to assure all, the surface is indeed acceptable for two wheeled vehicles travelling at speeds in excess of 300 kilometers per hour.

The Motul Grand Prix of Japan from Twin Ring Motegi,  Japan. The 15th round of the 2017 MotoGP season.
