The rain, hail and electrical storm that rolled into Nelson this afternoon have forced the cancellation of tonight’s demolition derby meeting.

The forecast was spot on with the weather arriving from the south just before 2pm and there is little sign of it easing up enough to allow tonight’s meeting at the Milestone Homes Top of the South Speedway to go ahead.

The club will find a new date for the Jack’s Tyres and Performance demolition derby.

Our next race night is January 9, our annual Racing for the Kids Child Cancer Foundation fundraiser featuring the ministock mania promotion and a field of eight midgets.

Keep an eye on our Facebook page, Nelson Speedway Association Inc for news about the derby postponement.
