I have been going for many years and recall the track being in worse condition, and then being salvaged with a few grades and some saw dust thrown in too.
Tonight smacks of Leicester throwing in the towel at a whiff of rain and the rest just going along with it.
The track wasn't watered since before Ht1 obviously in anticipation we were going to potentially receive a heavy shower. As you can see, if anything the short heavy shower probably would have helped the track along a bit.
As I was leaving the stadium, I heard a comment from one man with his family "well I'm never coming back here again" which makes me assume it was their first time.
