Safety concerns have led to a mutual cancellation
Swan Hill Rural City Council has responded to the cancellation of the event.
CEO John McLinden says that the area was ground smooth only six weeks prior and considered in racing condition.
"The area of concern is just at the 1000ft mark, which is where the maximum speed of vehicles is.That area was ground only six weeks ago, ground smooth and in tip-top racing condition and here we are 3-4 weeks later, we find it's settled and moved again."
According to Mr. McLinden, the council has spent in excess of $120,000 in emergency repairs over recent times, but there is no plans for further funding at this stage.
"The council will be assessing it's position before it commits to any further funding. At this point in time, there is no further commitment to further funding for the track."
