Drift Australia 2010 cancelled

In a dramatic development, the Drift Australia 2010 series has been canceled.  In a open letter, below, at the Drift Australia website Ninety Degree Entertainment has announced the cancellation.  It comes at the same time as the Classic Adelaide Rally faces financial pressure and possible cancellation and confirms that much of the motorsport industry is still struggling to overcome the global financial crisis and its effects.

"Due to the recent breakdown in extended and exhaustive negotiations, Ninety Degree Entertainment has been regrettably forced to cancel the current 2010 series format and postpone the Drift Australia events for 2010.

The premature announcements regarding Drift Australia in 2010 was somewhat based on maintaining commitments that still are being negotiated.

In light of this announcement, Ninety Degree Entertainment and all the teams are still committed to delivering a national drift series.

During this time, a new series format will be developed to a more feasible platform for all competitors and stakeholders with the view for long-term sustainability. The series organisers and all teams will be collectively communicating new ideas and strategies for a stronger return in the near future.

The relative late notice can affect the environment of the round format. Given that many tracks are not flexible later in the year, Drift Australia in 2010 may not run with the scheduled five rounds.

All entry fees paid to date will be fully refunded. Stay tuned for further announcements."

We have sought comment from some of the venues involved and if alternative arrangements might be put in place.
