All three practice sessions at the Japanese MotoGP were cancelled after thick fog descended on the Twin Ring Motegi circuit.
Moto GP, Moto2 and Moto3 were unable to make any track time because of the bad weather – connected to a Typhoon that hit the area recently.
The wet and foggy conditions in Japan severely reduced the visibility on track and prevented the use of the medical helicopter.
After waiting for the track to clear up, morning practice for all classes were initially abandoned with a revised time for Free Practice Two “to be announced”.
However, that was optimistic and Race Direction has now confirmed all sessions in the afternoon are cancelled too.
A completely revised schedule is set to be announced later in the day.
Spanish rookie Marc Marquez can secure his maiden MotoGP championship in Asia this weekend.
The 20-year-old leads compatriot and defending champion Jorge Lorenzo by 18-points.
If the Honda rider beats Lorenzo’s result by eight points or more, he will become the first rookie to win the premier class since Kenny Roberts in 1978.
