FIA WTCR: GAMBLERS’ PARADISE

November 15–18, 2018
Since 1954, Macau has hosted races where touring cars, sports cars and single-seaters feel at home. The new WTCR FIA World Touring Car Cup also makes a guest appearance in the gamblers’ paradise at the mouth of the Pearl River Delta.

BETWEEN THE CRASH BARRIERS

The city circuit in Macau is considered 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.

In 2018, the gambling paradise just outside Hong Kong will play host to the first season finale of the new WTCR FIA World Touring Car Cup.

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.
