Race day ready to defy rain

THERE is good news for both the Bundaberg Race Club and the region on the weather front today.

While the Bureau of Meteorology is predicting rain for the weekend, it looks like the Ulton Cup race meeting could just sneak in under the wire.

Bureau meteorologist Peter Otto said most of the rain predicted for today would be arriving in the evening.

“Most of the day will be cloudy and looking like it could do something,” he said.

“There might be some rain in the afternoon, but it will be light if there is anything at all.”

Mr Otto said the rain was being brought by a cloud band from the west that would linger around for some days, bringing wet weather into next week.

Bundaberg Race Club president Rod Titterington said the day would go ahead whatever the weather.

“The track we've got now should not be affected by a bit of rain,” he said.

“Everything here is set up. Hopefully we'll have the races as well.”

Mr Titterington said light rain overnight would not be a problem for the track.
