Organisers at the Macau Grand Prix organisers are doggedly ploughing ahead with plans for this unique event – due on November 21 – despite the coronavirus pandemic.
Their UK representative Paul Butler confirmed a statement from the organising committee that arrangements for the 67th event
were ‘currently’ ongoing but added cautiously that even though it was eight months away nothing could be certain for the final, and perhaps only, international road racing event of the year.
The calendar has been decimated by coronavirus but organisers of the Classic TT and Manx GP, scheduled for late August , and Oliver’s Mount at Scarborough are still scheduled to go. “We are still planning to do at least two meetings,” said Mick Grant. ”We have the benefit of being very flexible.”
Macau is, of course, a meeting like no other. A joyfest in one of the gambling capitals of the world interspersed with a few laps of racing on one of the most dangerous circuits.
