MotoGP Qatar Race To Run On Monday

Well, the sheer idiocy of night racing has finally revealed itself. Qatar's floodlit MotoGP race was abandoned before the parade lap because more than 5 MegaWatts of light reflecting off the wet track surface would have dazzled the riders.

However, the race has been rescheduled to run on Monday at 9pm local time, which is 7pm British Summer Time. To watch in the UK, we'll have to press the red button on a BBC channel at 6.45pm BST, or watch live streaming on the BBC Sport website (available in UK only). It also appears that British Eurosport will be allowed to show the race live due to the circumstances, so fans of Tobe and Jules should be happy. Tune in to British Eurosport 2 at 6.45pm for their coverage.
