FIA WTCC JVCKENWOOD Race of Macau
Suncity Group Macau Guia Race
FIA World Touring Car Championship, Rounds 17 and 18 of 20
16-19 November 2017




FIVE FACTS


1: Located 64 kilometres east of Hong Kong across the Pearl River delta, Macau has hosted the FIA World Touring Car Championship on 10 previous occasions with the WTCC last visiting in 2014.


2: The Circuito da Guia began life as the route of a treasure hunt back in 1954 with the Guia Race taking place for the first time in 1972 over the same layout.


3: At seven metres wide, the Melco Hairpin is deemed too narrow for drivers to attempt passing moves so a yellow flag is permanently displayed to discourage any overtakes.


4: Conversely, the run to the Mandarin Oriental Bend is the widest part of the track at 14 metres.


5: Rob Huff holds the record of eight Guia Race wins. BMW is the most winningest make on 21.
