Schedule change sees Friday action cancelled in Argentina

Logistical issues affecting freight for the FIM MotoGP™ World Championship have obliged a schedule change for the upcoming Grand Prix of Argentina. Due to two separate issues affecting two different flights, the final freight for the Argentina GP will now arrive in the country on Friday. Qualifying will take place on Saturday afternoon, with a slightly later start time. Three of the planned cargo routes took freight from Lombok to Tucuman via technical stops in Mombasa, Lagos and Brazil. 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, with two parts – one dispatched from Europe and another back up part, dispatched from the Middle East – already en route. The plane is expected to take off this evening and will follow the route from Mombasa via Lagos and Brazil, arriving in Tucuman on Friday.
