The 2012 World Series by Renault calendar was announced today with omission of Silverstone the notable alteration.

Despite attracting 120,000 to the event in August, the British round of the series has not been confirmed.

The championship will also venture into Russia for the first time as the WSR fraternity will travel to Moscow in mid-July.

Monza, which Formula Renault 3.5 visited as the support race for the WTCC, has also been left off the calendar.

The Monaco F1 support race in May and an unconfirmed venue to be held in August, potentially Interlagos, will feature just FR3.5 only while the other seven rounds will feature all of the WSR package consisting of Formula Renault 2.0 Eurocup and Eurocup Megane.

    who did we upset

  • Ovie Iroro

    Why is silverstone being dropped by so many series?

  • As like most things it’s probably down to money… cheaper to go elsewhere in Europe for the series!

  • craig

    Who else in the world can bring 120,000 avid race fans to one of the most historic and favourable circuit in the world loved  by all F1 drivers and every racing orginisation with so much passion for the sport! take it away from silverstone would be there biggest downfall ever and a huge blow to motorsport fans througout britain, Who might i add more or less invented the bloody sport!

    Yes its not right no British round at Silverstone this year it always a free sell out and I wanted to go. Its a high speed track and always good racing. I cannot afford to do Europe.

    Been to Silverstone for the World Series for several years and the whole family love it. How can you miss out the UK when we’re such a huge motorsporting nation! Really dissapointed over this. The ticket page still says ‘coming soon’ as Renault couldn’t even be bothered to change it and at least let fans know that way. Renault have snubbed us this year, I think we should snub buying Renaults for a year!

  • I have been enjoying the RWS for quite a number of years now. Watching several at the Castle Donington circuit before watching every one since moving the venue to Silverstone. What has gone wrong??, very dissapointed!!
