Stayed up to watch superpole, told there was a 20 minute delay, started showing 2011 Magny Cours race and then at 0505 told Superpole was cancelled......

Edited post as I have just found out that young Aussie ride Oscar McIntyre was fatally injured during previous qualifying race in Superstock 600's.........
Not the start to the season that anyone wanted, thoughts go out to family and friends.......
