FIA WTCR: GAMBLERS’ PARADISE

6.12 kilometres through the inner city of the former Portuguese colony, fast straights, virtually walking speed through the hairpin turn, and crash barriers right next to the track that leave no room for error – the Guia Circuit is one of the most diverse and demanding city circuits in the world. Since 1954, Macau has hosted races where touring cars, sports cars and single-seaters feel at home. The WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup also makes its second guest appearance in the gamblers’ paradise at the mouth of the Pearl River Delta.

LIKE ALL STREET CIRCUITS, IT REQUIRES A LOT OF PRECISION. FROM THE START, YOU CAN FEEL HOW CLOSE THE WALLS ARE LINING THE CIRCUIT. THE CAR NEEDS TO BE SET UP A BIT “POINTY” FOR THE TWISTY SECOND PART OF THE CIRCUIT, WHERE OVERTAKING IS VERY DIFFICULT.

RACE FACTS

The city circuit in Macau is considered as extremely demanding: 6,120 kilometres long, at times only 7 metres wide surrounded by an urban jungle, 24 turns including hairpins, crash barriers abutting the edge of the track and not one run-off zone. Good track knowledge, torquey engines, aerodynamic efficiency and decent traction are the prerequisites for success. Many young drivers cut their teeth in Formula 3 on the Guia Circuit.
