Macau | Local racer wins the Macau Grand Prix opening race

Local racer Helder Assunção took an overwhelming win in the 10-lap Suncity Group Chinese Racing Cup, the first race of the 64th edition of the Macau Grand Prix

Macau (MNA) – Starting from fourth in the grid, the Macanese driver benefited from the first lap accident to move up to third.

The Hong Kong veteran Kenneth Look lost the rear of his BAIC Senova D50 in the first corner of the opening lap, causing the chaos behind him. No injuries occurred, but several cars were heavily damaged.

On lap four, in the Lisboa Corner, Assunção overtook David Zhu, who was struggling with his car due to a damaged front splitter. But the best was yet to come.

Pole-sitter Zhang Zhi Qiang had dominated the first seven laps until a mechanical failure forced him out. Assunção inherited the first position and didn’t look back, finishing with an eleven-second gap to Zhu.

Chinese Taipei racer Brian Lee completed the podium in third. The top three drivers were driving the new BAIC Senova D50. Due to freight issues, the race didn’t saw the participation of seven TCR China Series entries, including race favourites Andy Yan, Huang Chu Han and Alex Hui.
