Windsor Arch 56th Macau Grand Prix Gets Underway with Unusual Challenge

FIA World Touring Car Championship (FIA WTCC) drivers Tiago Monteiro (SEAT Sport), Augusto Farfus (BMW Team Germany) and Robert Huff (Chevrolet) dash to the finish of the Macau Grand Prix Challenge today, with their tower of dim sum baskets, marking the start of the event.

The six-man FIA WTCC entry beat teams made up of drivers from the Formula 3 Macau Grand Prix, and riders from the Macau Motorcycle Grand Prix -- 43rd Edition by navigating a Macau-themed obstacle course, which included as its finale, stacking and carrying dim sum baskets to the finish line.

Special guest David Brabham, 1989 Formula 3 Macau Grand Prix winner, was on hand to wave the chequered flag for each of the teams.

The annual meet-and-greet for media and public, which is followed by an autograph session, is popular with both fans and media, and the competitors received a warm Macau welcome in the chilly weather.
