Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup outfit MRS have announced that they will not take part in this weekend's season-opening races at Bahrain.

The German team said in a statement that doubts had been caused by the 'ongoing unrests' and the 'security situation' in the island state.

Two Porsche Supercup races are due to take place at the Bahrain International Circuit this weekend in support of the Bahrain Grand Prix. MRS were due to field cars for American William Langhorne, who has raced in the series since 2006, as well as Austrian debutant Philipp Eng. The pair's 2012 campaigns will now begin at the second race meeting of the season at Barcelona.

“It is the first time in our team history that we have to cancel a race of the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup,” said team boss Karsten Molitor.

“In the end we have the responsibility for our employees. The race in Bahrain is for us one of the season's highlights, therefore it was not easy to come to a decision. According to our drivers and partners we have reached the conclusion to start only at the second race in Barcelona on 13th of May with the drivers Philipp Eng and William Langhorne.”
