4th Annual MGPC Scooter Cup

This weekend, Macau (a Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China) plays host to the 53rd annual Macau Grand Prix.  The Macau Motorcycle Grand Prix, run on the Guia Circuit made up of the streets of Macau, is part of a dieing breed of Real Road Racing.  The notoriously dangerous race is favored by racers who normally take part in the celebrated Isle of Mann TT.  Also being held is the 4th annual MGPC Scooter cup.  The race is open to Macau residents and follows the 40th annual Motorcycle Grand Prix on Saturday November 18th.  The race includes 50cc or 70cc two stroke scooters and 125cc 4 stroke scooters, each with their own class.  PGO entered a G-Max 125 (aka Genuine Blur) in 2004 and won the 125cc class by placing 14th overall. This years entry list does not show a PGO taking part but there are plenty of Yamahas and a smattering of SYM scooters making up the race grid. 2005 podium residents Kin Fei Lai, Mou Heng Tou and Kin Fai Chan (finishing in that order) return for this years challenge. The Scooter Cup, run on the same circuit, has got to be the coolest scooter race on earth. The Macau Grand Prix Committee website offers live audio of the race.
