Starting Line Incident Shakes Up Misano World Superbike Schedule

A starting line incident in the first race of the day at Misano has forced some minor rescheduling for the World Superbike Championship event. In the downpour currently playing over the Misano circuit, Italian rider Domenico Collucci stalled his Ducati 1098R off the line at the start of the FIM Superstock 1000 Cup race, and one of the riders from the back of the grid came through and hit the hapless Italian, ripping his rear wheel off and spreading oil and debris all over the grid. The race was immediately red-flagged (fortunately for title contender Xavier Simeon, who had folded the front of his Ducati going into the Rio corner while leading), and efforts were started to clean the track.

The new schedule just announced sees the FIM Superstock 1000 Cup race moved to the slot between the World Supersport race and race 2 of the World Superbike class, which is usually occupied by the European Superstock 600 class. The European Superstock 600 race will now be run after the second Superbike race. 

Here's the revised schedule:

12am: World Superbike race 1

1:25pm: World Supersport race

3:30pm: World Superbike race 2

4:40pm: FIM Superstock 1000 race

5:30pm: European Superstock 600 race
