PREMIAIR Racing has been forced to postpone its Subway Sunday Sesh event as wild weather lashes the Gold Coast.

Up to 150mm of rain is forecast to hit Surfers Paradise today, just five sleeps out from the first Gold Coast Supercars round in three years getting underway.

The first flow-on effect of that has seen PremiAir Racing move to call off the event at which a special livery for James Golding was to be unveiled.

The fresh look was to be revealed at midday (AEST) today before Golding himself took centre stage with an hour-long DJ performance.

“Unfortunately in the interests of everyone’s safety we have had to cancel the Subway Sunday Sesh and the livery unveil which was for today at Surfers Paradise,” the team confirmed this morning via social media.

It’s now expected the covers will be taken off the #31 Subway ZB Commodore mid-week.

Golding has firmed in recent weeks to be retained by PremiAir for next season, driving a Chevrolet Camaro alongside incoming teammate Tim Slade.

Chris Pither will depart at season’s end and is set to take up a leading co-drive.
