Saturday's scheduled World Superbike race at Assen in the Netherlands has been delayed until Sunday because of heavy snow showers at the circuit.

The opening race of the weekend had been scheduled for 13:00 BST but the weather made track conditions unsafe.

Italian Alvaro Bautista secured pole position in Saturday's Superpole session, with world champion Jonathan Rea on the fourth row in eighth spot.

Bautista leads the championship by 39 points from Rea after three rounds.

More to follow.

Unpredictable weather conditions force Saturday’s WorldSBK Race 1 to be postponed to Sunday

Following severe weather conditions on Saturday afternoon during the Motul Dutch Round in Assen, the difficult decision was taken to postpone WorldSBK Race 1 to Sunday.

Following a snow storm hitting the TT Circuit Assen early in the afternoon during the WorldSBK grid, Race 1 start had been delayed twice. However, weather conditions continued to deteriorate forcing to reschedule the race, at 11:00 AM on Sunday morning, to guarantee riders’ safety.

Sunday’s new schedule will include WorldSBK Race 1 at 11:00 AM LT (GMT +2.00) and WorldSBK Race 2 will start regularly at 14:00 LT (GMT +2.00). Thus, cancelling the Tissot Superpole Race.

Starting grid positions for WorldSBK Race 1 and Race 2 will be following the results of today’s WorldSBK Tissot Superpole.

The rest of the schedule remains unchanged.
