Macau GP announces Diamond Jubilee Celebrations for 2013


 
On Friday, the Macau Grand Prix Committee (CGPM)  announced the programme for two weekends of racing to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the  Macau Grand Prix, including the famous motorcycle Grand Prix.  Dates for the 60th Macau Grand Prix are: November 9th and 10th, and November 14th to 17th.  
 


The second weekend, running from Thursday, November 14th through to Sunday, November 17th, will once again include the three prestigious headline races and the Macau Motorcycle Grand Prix:  


* The Formula 3 Macau Grand Prix, 
*  The official FIA Formula 3 Intercontinental Cup; 
*  The final rounds of the FIA World Touring Car Championship 
*  The 47th running of the unique  Macau Motorcycle Grand Prix
 
 


 


Fireworks contest !!


Away from the race track,  Macau will celebrate its Grand Prix’s Diamond Jubilee with two weeks of city-wide celebrations including shows, parades, an international fireworks contest, and its famous cosmopolitan food festival.
 

Major infrastructure projects are underway too, with a new Race Control Tower to be completed in time for November’s Grand Prix as part of a major scheme
to construct new facilities in response to the prestige of the race meeting and the resulting logistical requirements.  The project will be executed in two phases, with the existing Grand Prix Building, built in 1993, replaced in time for the 2014 event.
