ROUTE TO MACAU FOR THE LAST STOP

The clock is ticking out for the 2007 FIA World Touring Car Championship. In less than three weeks the competitors will hit the track for the last two races of the season with all the titles still at stake.

For the third consecutive year the FIA WTCC closing act will be staged on Macau's infamous 6.1-km Guia street circuit.

On Sunday 18th November two 9 lap races will consecrate the 2007 Drivers" and Manufacturers World Champions, while the Yokohama Trophies will also be awarded to the best Independent driver and team.

Six men are still in contention for the Drivers' Championship: two times World Champion Andy Priaulx (BMW), Yvan Muller (SEAT), Augusto Farfus (BMW), James Thompson (Alfa Romeo), Jorg Muller (BMW) and Nicola Larini (Chevrolet), all covered by 20 points.

Half of this gap separates BMW and SEAT in the fight for the Manufacturers' Championship.

In the previous three appearances of Super 2000 cars at Macau, including the 2004 Guia Race, BMW have won five races out of six, with only Augusto Farfus' Alfa Romeo breaking this winning streak in 2005.

Jorg Muller, the only man ever to win both the Macau Formula 3 Grand Prix and the Guia Race, claimed three of BMW's five victories
