MotoGP postponed Friday practice for the Argentine Grand Prix to Saturday after air freight failed to arrive in time from the previous race in Indonesia.
MotoGP said five cargo flights had been scheduled to transport material from Lombok via Africa to Tucuman, near the Termas de Rio Hondo circuit.
“As of Thursday morning local time in Argentina, one cargo load remains grounded in Mombasa, Kenya. The plane is awaiting a part in order to return to the air,” organizers said.
