The customary marine mist has rolled in over the hills of the Monterey Peninsula, delaying the start of the action at Laguna Seca. Practice for the AMA classes has already been rescheduled, but no news yet as to whether this will effect the warm up for the MotoGP class. If the fog persists, it will render data from the morning warm up fairly meaningless.
The good news for race fans is that this is unlikely to impact on the race itself. Fog in Monterey is common, and is usually burned off fairly quickly by the morning sun. The MotoGP bikes should be ready to race by 2pm local time.
Bikes out on track as scheduled, in cold and still misty conditions, but the fog seems to be lifting.
