Macau Grand Prix 2018 preview
Friday 02 November 2018
The 2018 Suncity Group Macau Motorcycle Grand Prix – the 52nd running of the race - is the 21st and final round of the Duke Road Race Rankings Championship for 2018 and is set to welcome back three former winners who between them have 11 Macau victories to their names.
An international entry of 28 of the world’s top road races brings both a wealth of experience as well as up-and-coming talent eager to prove their racing credentials on the 3.80-mile Guia Circuit.
Eight-time winner Michael Rutter leads the charge as the ‘Two-wheel King of Macau’ vies to break his own record with an incredible ninth victory, 20 years after his first win in 1998.
Rutter reunites with currently seventh placed Duke Rankings rider Peter Hickman, Macau winner in 2015 and 2016, on the new Aspire-Ho by Bathams Racing Team.
Having missed the Macau Motorcycle Grand Prix last year due to injury, 2001 Macau champion and 23-time Isle of Man TT race winner John McGuinness makes a welcome return to the event. Other returning fan favourites include Martin Jessop, Portugal’s Andre Pires and German Didier Grams.
