A very wet Willowbank Raceway this morning - the Winters will now be July 15-17

Overnight inclement weather in the Willowbank area has forced organisers of the Castrol EDGE Winternationals to postpone the final two days of competition until July 15-17, 2011.

““It’’s very regrettable that we’ve had to postpone the final two days of competition, but with the forecast we had at hand, there was little point waiting around to see if the rain would clear,”” said Willowbank Raceway Managing Director, Steve Bettes.

““After many agonising hours overnight and consultation this morning, we felt the best option was to move the remainder of the event to July 15-17, 2011.

“”Spectators will still get to witness the greatest spectacle in drag racing in all its glory.

“”It was setting up to be one of the best Castrol EDGE Winternationals in the event’s 44-year history and I believe that in a month’s time, we will see that and even more,”” Bettes concluded. comment policy reserves the right to deny any post that is abusive or offtopic.
