Yet again I refer to the f1fanatic website and his article “More street tracks good for F1?” and a bit to another article “Ten… Jobs for Ecclestone to do“.
One of the best street races is without doubt the Macau GP. There is no F1 race there, but the Formula 3 race on this track is one of the must for the racing fans to see. The current F1 cars would probably offer only a procession raceof Monaco style on this punishing track, but the F3 race is a different story.
Two of the current F1 drivers took part in 2006 Macau GP. Adrian Sutil finished 3rd, Sebastian Vettel had less of the look and afer some racing incidents finished a lap down at 23rd. Toyota F1 test driver Kamui Kobayashi was also on the grid and finished 19th.
One of the famous drives of the recent past was Takuma Sato’s win in 2001. Read the story here – SATO’S MACAU PASSION
Here is the link to promotional video for 2006 Macau GP
Some of on board footage seen in this video is simply awesome. Let’s hope the new street races we will see in F1 next year will brings some excellent racing.
54th Macau GP will be held from 15-18 November 2007.
