For the first time after 37 years no Formula 3 in Macao due to the coronavirus

The historic Formula 3 event in Macao will not be driven by Formula 3 cars and drivers this year. The Asian administrative region has not yet been infected by the coronavirus and likes to keep game in this way.

For 37 years, Formula 3 teams and drivers from all over the world have been coming to the Macau Grand Prix. The historic event in the streets of Macau is a special test for young talent and has already produced many spectacular races. Last season the Dutchman Richard Verschoor won.

No Formula 3 in Macau

Because of the strict quarantine rules, it is not possible to bring F3 cars to Macao. Indeed, it is mandatory to have 14 days in quarantine before racing can take place. This is not feasible for the European F3 teams and drivers.

Formula 4 will be the replacement, although that will not be easy either. The regional F4 variant in China seems to be the most logical option according to Autosport.com, as the British F4 is still racing a week before the event in Macau. So if the drivers and teams want to compete in Macau from 19 to 22 November, they will have to miss the last race of the championship.
