Day one of IndyCar at Edmonton rained off
|Friday, July 22nd 2011, 21:27 GMT|
The first day of the IndyCar Series' Edmonton event has been officially rained out, with practice and qualifying now compromised into Saturday.
Persistent rain all day left large amounts of standing water on the track and in the paddock.
After a string of delays to the programme, officials admitted defeat shortly after 3pm local time and decided that no track action would take place today.
The revised schedule now sees two 45-minute practice sessions timetabled for 9.40am and 11.25am local time on Saturday, with qualifying set to run at 3.30pm as planned.
