The 44th Historic Winton event has been cancelled amid the current coronavirus threat.
Scheduled to run from May 29 to 31, the event will now instead pick up where it left off in May next year.
"It is with heartfelt disappointment that the Austin 7 club and it's Historic Winton subcommittee must cancel Historic Winton for 2020 due to the COVID-19 coronavirus control," organiser Len Kerwood said.
"Already the preparations for Historic Winton have become difficult in some quarters.
