Logistical issues affecting freight for the MotoGP World Championship have resulted in Friday practice being cancelled in Argentina.

Five cargo flights were scheduled to ship paddock material from Lombok, Indonesia, to Tucuman, close to Termas de Rio Hondo in Argentina, in the week following the Indonesian GP.

Due to two separate issues affecting two different flights, the final freight for the Argentina GP will now arrive in the country on Friday. The flight contains freight for all classes, with changes to the time schedule announced for all classes.

Free practice sessions will now begin and take place for all classes on Saturday morning. Of the sessions that normally take place on Friday, only one has been cancelled, with the other moved to Saturday. Qualifying will take place on Saturday afternoon, with a slightly later start time.

Warm up sessions on Sunday morning have been extended, with each race set to begin at the same start time as originally scheduled.
