Rain forces cancellation of ENS Day 1

Rain forces cancellation of ENS Day 1

The organisers of the Euro Nitro Series have opted to cancel Day 1 of the second round of the championship in Aigen, Austria, due to rain. A dry but cold track greeted drivers this morning but just after the 1:8 drivers took to the track for the first of their rounds of open practice, the 1:10 racers having got to complete their run, the first shower of the day arrived. Waiting to let the rain pass the weather was to further deteriorate with the Race Director making the call at lunch time to cancel today’s programme and give racers the time to prepare wet cars for tomorrow. With most of the racers having enjoyed plenty of dry running yesterday, Day 2 will start irrespective of it being a wet or dry track with the first of four rounds of qualifying. The track remains open today for an drivers wishing to get in some wet practice but the majority of racers are retiring to their hotels.
