Route to Macau

The clock is ticking for the 2011 FIA World Touring Car Championship as this weekend the strong field of 27 competitors will hit the track for the last two races of the season.

For the seventh consecutive year the final and deciding act will be staged on Macau’s infamous 6.1-km Guia street circuit. On Sunday 20th November two nine-lap races will consecrate the 2011 World Champion.

In the previous six appearances of the World Touring cars at Macau, BMW and Chevrolet have won five races apiece out of twelve, against one each for Alfa Romeo and SEAT.

In last year’s event Rob Huff won Race 1, claiming his third victories on the Guia track, while in the second race Norbert Michelisz scored his first ever (and only so far) WTCC win.

Local hero André Couto, in a SUNRED León 1.6T, will try once again to match Jörg Müller’s record of being the only driver to have won both the Macau F3 GP and Guia Race.
