Sepang organizers fined

Normally it’s the GP riders getting fined for doing some half-assed thing on track and putting other riders in danger, but this time it was the Sepang International circuit organizers who got fined € 15.
000 following this morning’s Moto2 first free practice session.

In the opening minutes of the session an isolated rain shower hit turn 10 of the track which the marshals failed to flag to the riders.

The wet track caught out first Jules Cluzel, then Bradley Smith who was followed by Yonny Hernandez and Marc Marquez, all four crashing heavily out.

Bradley Smith ended up with a fractured left collarbone and a chest contusion, while title contender Marc Marquez ended up with problems to his shoulder and neck and was advised not take part in the afternoon session.
The FIM statement: “On Friday 21st October at the beginning of the Moto2 Free Practice (FP1) the flag marshals didn’t display the appropriate flag at turn 10 where the track was completely wet creating a very dangerous situation for the riders, which is an infringement to the Art.
