Ferry tickets, hotel room, grand stand ticket and thanks to Nick Thomas (on the picture above) also the paddock passes – all set and ready to go.

The 55th Macau GP long weekend will start this Thursday, November 13th. The first Macau GP was organized back in 1954. Since 1983 the Formula 3 race is part and the highlight of the race weekend programme in the former Portuguese enclave.

Although Macau never hosted and likely never will host Formula 1 race the Macau GP has strong F1 connection. The first Macau GP Formula 3 race winner was Ayrton Senna, the other winners include among others Michael Schumacher, Ralf Schumacher or David Coulthard.

    Fantastic stuff! The last time our bros – Nick Thomas, and Joe Sevack, hit the MC track a few years back, they blitzed the field and their RoadnTrack team did very well indeed! Here’s to more excitement to come, good luck and sensational racing to the boyz again this year in the GT Cup! And, no more “Nick One Door” this year! ;) Go Blue 42!
