Two AMR Vantage GT3's get set to compete at Macau

Thursday, November 18, 2021

Tomorrow sees that start of the formal track proceedings ahead of the running of the 68th Macau Grand Prix this weekend around the distinctive street circuit of the semi-autonomous region of coastal China.

For the first time since a three-car effort back in 2015, this weekend’s event shall see the return of Aston Martin Racing’s latest Vantage GT3 platform, this time running in the hands of Uno Racing for their drivers David Pun and Marchy Lee.

With neither driver no stranger to the demands of the circuit and with the entry list for this weekend’s Sands China Macau GT Cup races being restricted to Chinese (and colony) nationals rather than being opened up to the wider audience for an FIA sanctioned event, the #38 car of Lee and the #91 car of Pun will face just as a good a chance within the two races as the next driver in the provisional 19 car grids.

Running just a 25-minute Free Practice session on Friday before a 25-minute Qualifying session later in the time, track time is obviously being limited around the 3.8 mile Guia street circuit for the Grand Prix’s six series programme.

Saturday will then see a brief warm up session before their first eight lap race that will start at 15:50hrs local before a further 12 lap race on Sunday at 13:10hrs local.

Both Aston Martin’s will be conspicuously liveried to represent the two fashion labels that a supporting the teams with Pun’s Evisu fashion empire (presently celebrating their 30th anniversary) supporting his #91 car with the Bathing Ape label supporting Lee’s #31 car.

As with any street circuit race, incident and accident is never too far away!!
