Leg 6 of the Australasian Safari on Friday, August 29 - from Mt Magnet to Geraldton - has been cancelled due to the potential of damage to land and infrastructure created by poor weather conditions.

Three private stations had kindly agreed to make their land available to the competitors but due to wet weather conditions experienced on Thursday and forecast for Friday, event officials have made the decision to cancel this leg of the race.

The 2008 Australasian Safari has relied on the goodwill of station owners throughout the mid West and Goldfields and does not want to compromise this relationship for the future success of this event.

Leg 6 will now be a neutral day for competitors who are now asked to check in at Yalgoo in the morning and arrive at Geraldton in the afternoon, in time for the planned community welcome at 5pm

Results from Leg 5 will be carried over to Leg 7 scheduled on Saturday 30 August from Geraldton to Perth.
