Rain stops play

My basic approach to sport: 'Not interested unless it has an engine and at least two tyres'.
So, with eager anticipation I tuned in for tonight's opening round of the Moto GP Championship in Qatar, only to find that in a country which gets 8 days rain per year, the race was cancelled due to rain!
Just as those who live with snow for 6 months of the year must look on our reaction in the UK to a light dusting of the white stuff with a mixture of amusement and disgust, so also my reaction to those who cancel a motorbike race due to a shower of rain...
