Saturday’s weather forecast is calling for wind, rain and thunderstorms.  Event organizer Stephan Risch and the IGSA have already determined that due to the high speed nature of the track, it would be too dangerous to run in wet conditions.  If the bad weather materializes, the elimination rounds will be canceled and qualifying will determine the final results.  Everyone is hoping that the rain will stay away until Saturday evening!
