The 54th Macau Grand Prix was launched today at Macau; the event will include the FIA World Touring Car Championship’s final meeting as well as the 25th edition of the FIA Formula 3 Intercontinental Cup and the 41st Macau Motorcycle Grand Prix.

During a crowded press conference held at the Fisherman’s Warf Convention Centre, Dr Fernando Chui San Oi, Secretary for Social Affairs and Culture, stated:

"As one of the major sports tourism attractions, over the last 54 years the Macau Grand Prix has been an essential tool with which to boost the development of the city’s tourism, enhancing the promotion of the non-gaming entertainment sector, while playing an important role in promoting Macau’s image as a tourism city worldwide."

Engineer João Manuel Costa Antunes, coordinator of the Macau Grand Prix Committee, commented on the third appearance of the FIA WTCC in Macau: "Since its inception, the FIA WTCC has been decided at Macau.

We are thrilled that this year we will once again host the title decider and we are also very pleased to announce that long-time Macau Grand Prix supporter, Sociedade de Jogos de Macau (SJM), will be again the title sponsor for the FIA WTCC Guia Race of Macau."

 

According to the Macau Grand Prix Committee, ticket pre-sales for the event have increased by five per cent compared to last year.
