AFTER an early morning ground inspection, tonight's Monster Truck spectacular at Castrol Edge Lismore Speedway has been cancelled.

Rain late yesterday and overnight left the grassed spectator areas saturated and promoter David Lander was left with no alternative but to call off the fixture.

β€œIt's just too wet to have people sitting on the grass and the general access and pit areas also have been affected by the wet weather. The ground is just too wet,” he said.

The Monster Truck meeting has now been put back toward the end of the season and will be held on April 10.

The next scheduled fixture at the Lismore Showground circuit will be Saturday, January 9 featuring Speedcars and a round of the Wingless Sprintcar series in addition to a full support card.
