Tasmanian speedway fans will have to wait for the opening round of the state's season.
Providing updates to the motorsport community on the Carrick Speedway Facebook page, the meet organisers encouraged people not to message them before eventually delivering the final blow.
"Tomorrow's meeting has been cancelled," the post read.
"Partly due to the fact that [one third] of the competitors or crowd can no longer attend.
"Partly due to the spectator bank being water logged and not very safe.
"But the track is ready to go so from 12-4pm we will open the track to anyone who wants to practice - $50 per car.
"Unfortunately we will not be allowing public entry to spectate.
"Pre-purchased tickets will be refunded."
Originally scheduled to get underway from 5pm, the meeting had enticed well in excess of a hundred entries in seven different categories of racing.
Saturday's Elwick gallops meeting has been abandoned, but will be rescheduled to a negotiated time.
Tasracing is looking at "dividing or adding races where possible to upcoming meetings at Launceston".
Sunday's twilight harness meet has been rescheduled to October 20, while Launceston's Monday night greyhounds will proceed as planned.
Trials at Carrick on October 18 will also go ahead but with no Southern-based horses.
