FOR the second consecutive round, a Porsche Michelin Sprint Challenge Australia Series race has been declared a non-event following torrential rain.
Race three of Round four at The Bend Motorsport Park commenced behind the Safety Car, however due to the increasingly poor conditions was ultimately red flagged and not resumed.
The race was declared a ‘No Race’, meaning no points will be awarded.
The following is attributable to Porsche Michelin Sprint Challenge Race Director, David Stuart:
“Given the weather and the track conditions, the decision was made to start the race under the Safety car.
“During the formation lap, a car stopped on track which required recovering and resulted in an additional formation lap.
“Once the race got to a position to be able to start, it was clear that due to the amount of standing water and resultant spray, that the race could not continue and was suspended, and subsequently not restarted.”
The next round of the Porsche Michelin Sprint Challenge Australia will see the series return to Mount Panorama, Bathurst, at the Supercheap Auto Bathurst International on November 11-13.
