Four motorsport events that were cancelled because of bad weather

Following devastating bushfires across the Australian State of New South Wales, the organisers of Rally Australia have made the decision to cancel the event. While for a time it looked like the rally might still have gone ahead, with reducing running hours and a much shorter route, the “best interests and safety of everyone involved” had to be put first, according to the event’s chairman Andrew Papadopoulos.
