The British Automobile Racing Club have announced that today's opening round of the ASCAR series will be a 20 Lap Demonstration only, with the intervention of the Safety Car on Lap 10.

This is due to engine problems that were discovered during testing last week. There is an issue about the cars going quicker than expected, causing higher G-forces than expected, so the oil is not behaving as planned and is staying in one area of the engine for too long aroung the turns, causing engines to fail.

The organisers decided it would be unsafe to allow the race to go ahead as intented.

Qualifying will start at 10:20 BST and the Demonstration Race will start at 14:00 BST.
