WTCC JVCKENWOOD Race of Macau - 16-19/11/2017

TRACK GUIDE IN 100 WORDS

Macau’s Circuito da Guia blends twisty turns and narrow blasts with long, wide-open straights and sweeping corners, plus gradient changes, to create one of the most challenging and spectacular street circuits on the planet. After two years away, the world’s fastest international touring car series returns to the Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China, restoring the famous Guia Race to its former glory in the process. Previously forming the closing event of the WTCC season, Macau will now host the penultimate weekend of the campaign when Rob Huff will be bidding for a record-extending ninth Macau win.
