Motor Racing: Meetings off.

TODAY'S meetings at Redcar and Newton Abbot have been abandoned due to a waterlogged track.

Overnight rain left Redcar heavy in places and clerk of the course Jonjo Sanderson was not expecting conditions to improve.

He said: "We have abandoned. We had about 15 millimetres of rain overnight and there are areas of standing water and patches on the track which couldn't take much more rain.

"The weather is due to get worse."

Newton Abbot was called off yesterday.

"We had to abandon following the inspection as the course is waterlogged," said clerk of the course Jason Loosemore.
