The organisers of Rally Poland have cancelled SS7, the repeat-run through the Kapciamiestis stage.

A statement on the event's official website read: "The stage was cancelled for two reasons. There were a number of spectators standing in unsafe places and the condition of the track surface had deteriorated badly."

The Kapciamiestis test had already been shortened from 26.61 km to 12.92 km prior to the off due to heavy rain this week and a deteriorating surface. However it was used this morning as SS5.
