The annual Formula 3 Macau Grand Prix was canceled for the second year in a row due to travel restrictions.

The Macau Grand Prix is a Formula 3 tradition that has seen some of motorsports’ biggest legends express themselves in the narrow streets of the Asian city.

Due to travel restrictions and the mandatory 21-days quarantine required for any incoming traveler, the FIA has once again decided to cancel the event, considering the international origins of the Formula 3 competitors.

“With the majority of competitors taking part in the FIA events coming from outside the region, this presents the drivers, teams and suppliers with conditions that are difficult to comply with,” an FIA statement said.

“As a result, the FIA Formula 3 World Cup and FIA GT World Cup will not take place in 2021, with the aim of returning next year.”

“For many years, the Macau Grand Prix has been a season-ending tradition for much of the motor sport world and it holds special significance for the FIA as the only event to feature three different FIA World Cups on the same event schedule,” FIA secretary-general for motorsports Peter Bayer added.

“While we will miss not being there ourselves, we wish the organisers a safe and successful Macau Grand Prix in November and we will start working immediately towards the 2022 event.”
