FIA World Cups will not feature on 2021 Macau GP schedule


The FIA Formula 3 World Cup, FIA GT World Cup and final round of the WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup will not feature on the bill of this year’s Macau Grand Prix.

The Government of Macau Special Administrative Region has confirmed that, for the foreseeable future, all those arriving into Macau SAR must undergo a quarantine of 21 days immediately after arrival.

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.

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.

A revised calendar for the second half of the 2021 WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup season, including a new event to replace the Macau round, will be announced in due course. The WTCR Promoter, Eurosport Events, has confirmed that its intention is to also return to the Guia Circuit in 2022.

The 68th edition of the Macau Grand Prix is still scheduled to take place in November 2021 and feature international-level competitions. Further details of the event programme will be announced by the Automobile General Association Macao-China (AAMC) in due course.

Peter Bayer, FIA Secretary General Sport: “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. 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”.
