The Macao Grand Prix is famously known as one of the most demanding circuits in the world. Built in 1954 the Guia circuit was originally made as a route for treasure hunts around the streets of the city. However, along the narrow, twisting Guia street circuit of Macao City, it was suggested that the track could host an amateur racing event for local motor enthusiasts. Ever since then the track has become a venue for both motorcycle and car racing events!
The legendary Guia street circuit will be a visual spectacle with some of the best racers in the world pitting against each other for the cup.
