This is a developing story please check back later for more details
- Saturday, February 25: A strengthening north-easterly wind forced H2O Racing officials to postpone Saturday afternoon’s BRM Qualifying session for the Kopiko Grand Prix of Indonesia until Sunday morning.
- All 20 boats were sent out on schedule on to the demanding Lake Toba course and ran at low speeds for a few minutes while race officials assessed any safety concerns. Unfortunately, the wind was beginning to strengthen from the north-east on the far side of the course and Race Director Luis Ribero took the decision to red flag the session and postpone BRM Qualifying.
- Following the strong winds that forced the postponement of BRM Qualifying on Saturday afternoon, qualifying was rescheduled for Sunday morning and has been reduced to one crucial 45-minute session to determine Pole Position Trophy points and the starting order for the race. There will be no warm-up session in the schedule.
- There will now be two shorter races, the first starting at noon and the second starting, as per the original schedule, at 15.00hrs in the presence of Joko Widodo, the President of the Republic of Indonesia.
