I will have a few days holiday in Hongkong in march. Is there anything worth to see besides what lonely planet suggests. A good motorsport bookshop, a forgotten track, a museum? Thanks in advance!

Not much in Hong Kong but if you take a trip in the ferry over to Macau there is a motor museum there near the circuit. You can then walk round the circuit and be amazed that people not only race cars but motorcycles there. In the museum are a number of interesting cars including three or four of Teddy Yip's cars. One is the car Ayrton Senna raced at Macau and they have the winning F3 cars of Michael Schuacher and David Coultard there. Also Macau is a quaint place with its strong Portuguese roots.

Sorry, Macau won't be on the trip list. Will enjoy the harbour and forget racing for a week, thanks Graham.

Both Golden Hill and Wong Nei Chong Gap have been used as hillclimbs in the past - John MacDonald raced on them.
