This years GP3 Series will now not take in a race at Monaco.
The Formula 1 feeder championship had announced that it was in discussions to hold a race at the famed venue during the final weekend in May.
Unfortunately, due to lack of space in an already crowded environment, the GP3 event has had to be shelved for this year at least.
As well as the Grand Prix itself, GP2, World Series by Renault and the Porsche Supercup Series also run over the weekend.
With the exclusion of the principality, this year’s GP3 Championship will now comprise of eight race weekends; however a further two days of testing has been added to bolster the season calendar. The test is to be held in June, although both the date and venue have yet to be announced.
