The Automobile Club de Monaco has issued a statement denying that the TCR International Series will race on the Monaco Circuit in 2017, after WSC Ltd, the TCR International Series promoter announced at the beginning of last week that the fourth event of the season would take place on May 28 on the famous Monte Carlo street circuit, on the sidelines of the FIA Formula One World Championship.
The Automobile Club has now published a statement which denies that a contract has been signed, according to a number of racing news sources, including touringcars.net.
“The Automobile Club de Monaco absolutely contradicts this untrue information. No contact has ever been made between TCR International Series and the Automobile Club de Monaco.
“For this reason, at the FIA World Motor Sport Council held in Vienna on November 30, 2016, the Automobile Club de Monaco clarified, during the vote on the International Series’ calendars, to not register the TCR International Series on the Circuit de Monaco.”
The TCR International Series is an international Touring Car championship, according to its organisers.

Monaco’s Gerald Robinson hit five three-pointers in the first-quarter and scored a game high of 30 points, claiming seven rebounds in the tense second leg. The Turkish side were seven points up in the third quarter, but fell short despite Andy Rautins' 19-point haul. Robinson said after the game: “We expected that from a good team, a well-coached team. We just had to stay focused. Basketball is a game of runs. It's a good thing we had the (first-leg) advantage.”
