Special announcement - Rnd 2 2011

Torrential rain has forced event officials to postpone Sunday's programme at the first NZ Festival of Motor Racing - Chris Amon - meeting at Hampton Downs today.

Racing yesterday was compromised by the monsoon-like conditions and officials decided this morning to call an early halt to proceedings because of the on-going effects of the inclement weather.

Fortunately this weekend's meeting was the first of two over consecutive weekends at the new circuit so entrants - particularly the many from overseas - will at least get a chance to contest their categories, including the programme-leading MSC NZ F5000 Tasman Cup Revival Series races, hopefully in better conditions, next weekend.

The MSC F5000 Tasman Cup Revival Series is organised and run with the support of sponsors MSC, NZ Express Transport, Bonney's Specialized Bulk Transport, Mobil Lubricants, Pacifica, Smith & Davies, Avon Tyres and Exide.
