The final round of WTCC will traditionally take place in Macau. This race promises to be one of the most spectacular events in the calendar - thirty-four cars will appear on the grid. The city circuit in Macau is considered very difficult. This is a very fast and long track (6.1 km) with a number of “blind corners” and a lack of run-off areas. Such features are typical for most of the city racetracks, but in Macau, where top speed reaches 260 km/h, these peculiarities make the drivers pay more attention to the concentration and the accuracy of driving.
