Article on this long-lived annual race carnival inclusive of a potpourri of photos.

Very interested to hear of personal race recollections and see photographs which are not exactly plentiful, especially in the race’s earlier times

Interesting reading.

Since my visit to MAcau GP in 2013 I got hoocked to the race and since then I collect photos and memorabilia from the race

Here is Mauro Bianchi and his Alpine who won the race in 1966

Thanks Colin,

Have not seen a photo of the car at Macau before, the first 'works team' to compete at the place id I remember Philip Newsome's book correctly

Ah, that's disappointing. I always imagined Bianchi won the race in a single seater!  :|

Dieter Quester on the way to winning the 1970 Macau GP aboard his BMW F269 M12 2-litre. Big Len Terry fan, time to find out more about these Dornier constructed cars !

In the Macau pits, chassis number? In my mind Quester was a Taxi Driver but he won a Euro F2 round in 1970 and was fourth in the title. One (Surtees) GP. Learn something every day...(Colour and Noise’ P Newsome)
