The much anticipated opening of Swan Hill Dragway has been delayed due to the wet and wild weather that has been lashing much of the south east of Australia.
Due to open this weekend with the Race for Pride event, Swan Hill Dragway’s management team made the heartbreaking decision to postpone the opening with the weather preventing safe preparation of the racing surface.
Via their Facebook page, Swan Hill Dragway advised the following:
“Due to the persistence of Mother Nature, it has become clearly obvious to all concerned and all parties involved trying to get Swan Hill Drag Racing Club’s inaugural event raced and run that time is not on our side with the region recording a near record drenching over the past two weeks. It is with regret we notify racers and fans that the race meeting will not go ahead as scheduled this weekend. It is an absolutely unavoidable situation that has not dampened the spirits of the band of volunteers. A new date will be announced shortly.”
