Southern 100 organisers have confirmed that Tuesday evening’s session will go ahead as planned despite the day’s wet weather.

A short statement from the club released just before 4.30pm said: ‘We are pleased to confirm that roads around the Colas Billown Circuit will be closing as planned at 6.05pm.’

Monday evening’s opening practice session was severely disrupted first by a red flag incident in the newcomers’ sighting laps and then by capacity issues at Noble’s Hospital.
