Hotel Fortuna MAC/HKG Interport Race

Leong Ian Veng won the Hotel Fortuna MAC/HKG Interport Race today as the Macau Special Administrative Region swept the podium for the second straight year in a shortened race. Second across the line was his Son Veng Racing Team teammate Wong Hou Man while Sergio de Lacerda finished third.

With the first two laps of the race run behind the Safety Car, Leong was only able to make his mark on the fourth lap, first moving up two places into second and then, on the final corner, getting by Wong. Leong held his position and was declared the winner after the race was stopped two laps later.

Macau Road Sport Challenge

Sun Tit Fat won his second consecutive Macau Road Sport Challenge today, the Macau racer at the wheel of a Mitsubishi Lancer Evo. IX edging out Tatsuya Tanigawa of Japan driving a Mazda RX 8. Third on the podium was Macau's Lei Chong Seng, in a Mitsubishi Lancer Evo. VIII.

Starting from second on the grid, Sun made his key move early in the race to take the lead. Though at one point he led by 13 seconds, Sun finished the race just under two-tenths of a second ahead of Tanigawa, who also took the top Class B honours.

In the three-category race, Chou Keng Kuan of Macau driving a Honda CRX emerged victorious in Class C.

CTM Macau Touring Car Race

Hong Kong's Lo Ka Fai won the CTM Macau Touring Car Race ahead of Hong Kong's Kenneth Look and Ferdinand S. Pastor of the Philippines.

With the exception of one overtaking manoeuvre early in the 12-lap race, Lo led the 35-strong field made up of some of Macau, Hong Kong and the region's best touring car drivers. Having qualified sixth, Look worked his way through the field quickly and moved into second on Lap 5. Rounding out the top five were Macau driver Eurico de Jesus and Lo's younger brother Lo Ka Chun of Hong Kong who were fourth and fifth, respectively.
