Red Bull Air Race cancelled

It seems the Red Bull Air Race which was supposed to happen on the Corniche in Abu Dhabi this afternoon has been cancelled. The weather has simply been too horrible for them to be able to conduct the race.

Not only is it cloudy and extremely windy, it even started to rain a little bit now, so a decision has been made to cancel the race.

People have been waiting on the Corniche since 3PM, which was when the race was supposed to start (I can see them from my window). And the traffic on the Corniche actually equals the traffic you sometimes see in Dubai, believe it or not!

The one time something different happens in Abu Dhabi and it gets cancelled!!!

Oh, and by the way, happy St Paddy's day to everyone out there...Irish and non-Irish :)

Update: It seems the race was postponed until tomorrow (Saturday), 3PM.
