This year’s Macau Grand Prix will return from November 19 to 21 with six races sponsored by major integrated tourism and leisure enterprises in the destination.
The races with their title sponsors are: SJM Formula 4 Macau Grand Prix, Sands China Macau GT Cup, Galaxy Entertainment Macau Guia Race, Melco Macau Touring Car Cup, MGM Greater Bay Area GT Cup, and Wynn Porsche Carrera Cup Challenge.
The Macau Grand Prix season will also feature numerous public events, such as the Family Carnival at Tap Seac Square on November 6 and 7, where children can learn about behind-the-scenes work on the races; the Car Show at Tap Seac Square on November 13 and 14, where race cars are displayed; the Macau Grand Prix opening ceremony at the same venue on November 13; live broadcast of the races at various locations throughout the local community; and Grand Prix photo contests.
All activities will be conducted in strict compliance with health and safety measures set by the health authorities.
As the Macau Grand Prix is recognised as the destination’s most important sports tourism brand, the Macau Grand Prix Organizing Committee hopes that hosting the event this year as scheduled will send a clear message that Macau is safe to visit and that the event will promote the development of different industries, thereby boosting the local economy.
Global broadcast of the event will also serve to positively promote Macau’s image, noted the press statement.
Tickets for the event have gone on sale since October 26, with prices ranging from MOP50 (US$6.20) for November 19 to MOP400 to 1,000 on November 20 and 21 race days.
In consideration of the pandemic’s impact on spending power, special discounts will be offered on tickets this year to encourage residents and visitors to join in the festivities.
