The 20th anniversary Hawke’s Bay Six-hour off-road endurance race has been cancelled.
“I am so very sorry but we have had to cancel the 6-hour again this year. Once again it is circumstances beyond our control,” said organiser Lyn Youren.
The event had been set for Waikoau in the Kaiwhaka forest, just north of Napier, on Saturday, October 1.
“The forest requirements and the continual rain have made it impossible to put together and the long range forecast does not have any good news either. We are unable to do any track work until the end of the month and there is just not enough time.
“So, very regretfully, we have had to make this decision now rather than wait until closer to the event. There is also a risk that the property could be pulled due to the wet conditions. We have had more rain than last year.”
