Knockhill BSB: Chiefs reviewing schedule as heavy rain delays qualifying

Bennetts British Superbike bosses are currently in a rolling review to determine whether today’s premier class action will continue as bad weather continues to hit Scotland.

The standard three-stage BSB qualifying has already been scrapped in favour of one qualifying practice session, but Race Director Stuart Higgs says he and the teams are continuing to look for a break in the clouds.

“We’re meeting with teams to agree a plan of action for today,” Higgs said. “In any case, Superbikes will be a single qualifying practice of 40 minutes, overtaking the three-stage qualifying because of the track conditions.

“We’re now in a period of rolling review and that will happen every 15 minutes up until 6.15. If we haven’t started by 6.15, then BSB qualifying will be cancelled and we’ll revert to the combine classification from the free practices to establish the grid for tomorrow’s first race.

“Thereafter we’ll then work on a continuing review basis to see if we can get the hour and 25 minutes of support races completed, which is the Supersport sprint, Junior Supersport race two and Sidecar race two.”
