It was revealed today by Indian television broadcaster NDTV, that the inaugural i1Super Series has been cancelled until 2013.

The championship, featuring eighteen competitors racing Radical SR3’s; however only four of the nine team’s had received offers from potential owners.

Several notable drivers had confirmed their appearance in the series, including 1997 Formula 1 world champion, Jacques Villeneuve.
Former Grand Prix racers Heinz-Harald Frentzen, Giancarlo Fisichella, Karun Chandhok Jean Alesi and Vitantonio Liuzzi were also due to take part in the series, which also featured several Indian drivers.

It is yet another set up for the i1 Super Series which has been plagued with problems since its inception.
Originally, competition was to begin in December, but postponements led to the series being rescheduled to run from mid-February to late March. However with testing and championships kicking off in Europe and North America shortly, several competitors were forced to withdraw.

      Aye — and to be honest, I doubt very much whether it’ll actually appear in 2013.
