The World Touring Car Championship has amended its 2012 calendar, dropping Argentina's provisional round, scheduled for July 8, and replacing it with an event in Europe on April 29.
Lengthier than anticipated negotiations with a regional government are understood to have contributed to the decision.
A WTCC spokesman told AUTOSPORT that the series remains willing to visit Argentina in 2013.
Half of the events on the 12-round 2012 WTCC calendar will now be held in Europe.
