sydneyLogoIn a ironical twist beyond belief, tonight’s USC Sprintcar meeting at Sydney Valvoline Raceway has been cancelled due¬†to the extreme temperatures forecast.

While Perth and the Perth Motorplex have been inundated with record rainfall, Sydney is forecast to reach 44 degrees today (111 deg F).

The scorching heatwave that is sweeping across NSW will simply make things unbearable for drivers, teams, officials and spectators.

Valvoline¬†Raceway MD Steven Green said yesterday “In the end it wasn’t really a difficult decision to make as we have a duty of care to provide competition and entertainment in the safest possible environment for spectators, teams and our operations team, and the reality is conditions are overwhelming here today, let alone tomorrow”
