That abandonment forced a revision of the starting time, with this year's race brought forward from 5 p.m. to 4 p.m local time. That will lessen the chances of the arrival of rain, which tends to come in the late afternoon, while also heightening the chances of a re-start if the race does have to be stopped. Last year, by the time the storms had passed, it was too dark to contemplate a re-start.
Heightening the chances of a restart? You bloody mentioned it was too dark when the storm passed. And assuming the timing of the storm to be accurate - (hint-brought forward time to avoid rain); it WILL still be too dark when the storm pass.
What an idiot. If you have no idea on how to lengthen your report, just keep it simple n short.
