Watch shocking moment MotoGP circuit is hit by huge LIGHTNING BOLT as thunderstorms batter Indonesian track

ADVERSE weather conditions caused the start of the MotoGP Indonesian Grand Prix to be delayed after a LIGHTNING BOLT struck the track. Torrential rain battered the Mandalika International Street Circuit before the start of Sunday’s race. Standing water on the asphalt made riding conditions too hazardous for the race to go ahead at the scheduled 7am (UK time) start. After fears that the event would have to be cancelled altogether after returning to Indonesia for the first time since 1997, the second race of the MotoGP season got underway an hour behind schedule. But the race, scheduled for 27 laps, was cut down to 20 due to the weather.
