Sebring storm halts Prologue opening session

First session of the FIA WEC pre-season Prologue is abandoned during heavy weather

After several days of glorious sunshine in which the FIA WEC teams set up the paddock and prepared for the opening round of the season, the skies darkened during the first track session of the Prologue.

With rain lashing the circuit and reports of incoming lightning, the decision was taken to pause the session and the decision subsequently followed not to resume before the afternoon. 

The Prologue will continue throughout March 12-13 as the teams and drivers make their preparations for the opening round of the WEC's tenth anniversary season, the 1000 Miles of Sebring, being held on March 18.
