OIL sprayed over the track has caused lengthy delays during the first practice session of the MotoGP at Phillip Island.
Liquid from a Moto3 bike was sprayed around the track as the first 250cc machines hit the circuit amid passing showers.
Riders were called back into the pits as track staff worked to clear the track of oil.
Practice was scheduled to resume at 12.20pm, more than two hours after the original start time.
A new timetable for today’s two practice sessions was being drawn up.
The MotoGP riders were expected out sometime after 2pm.
Governing body Dorna is expected to take action against the team of the bike that spread oil over the track.
