The drainage of the Greyville poly track was put to the test yesterday and looks as if there had been no rain at all…

In spite of the torrential downpour experienced over Durban on Tuesday, the Greyville poly track was un-affected by the 122mm of rain as coastal residents mopped up and serveyed the damage under cloudless skies yesterday.

“We could have raced today,” said track manager Kurt Grunewald. “The track has drained perfectly and areas where we sometimes experienced problems (with drainage) were dry. No, everything is fine for Sunday.” No rain is forecast for the interim.

The turf track was also flooded but the next turf meeting is only scheduled for Sunday, October 22. “Provided that we don’t get any more rain like yesterday, the track should be in great shape,” added Grunewald.
