    Default Spoon NSX-R GT @Motegi(pre-test for 55th Macau Rd car challenge)

    Spoon's boss Tatsuru ICHISHIMA is testing the NSX -R GT @Twin Ring Motegi for this year's Macau Grand Prix(http://www.macau.grandprix.gov.mo/gp...d=882&lang=en), I cant wait to see it in action as I have 2 friends who are competing in the same class!

    I grew up watching Senna, Schumacher, Hakinen, etc and all the great names raced in Macau, its my dream track and I hope I can race there in the near future!

    Wow. That is simply an amazing track. I would personally be terrified of killing myself running into a wall at that speed.

    That guys got balls.

    Shame on you! Those are 320s. Touring cars have always been 320/325.

    EDIT: cept for E30s, I think.

    In the E30 days, they do have M3 GTR, but thats in a different class. And at that time, those 320's bigget competitors were Benz 190Es.

    Comments like these are petty and lame. They kill topics and just show the patheticness from making a big deal out of a small mistake (which too many people do in general on forums).

    M. Schumacher VS M. Hakkinen in 1990 Macau Grand Prix(F3).

    MS Took the title from MH due to Hakkinen's crash.

    Charles, thanks for posting those videos. I especially enjoyed the incar of the Focus above. That track is insane!!! I remember hearing a lot about racing in Macau when I was a child back in HK. Never watch any footage of it before, if I did I was too young to remember. Good stuff. BTW, do yo know what the fatality rate for drivers there is per year? I'd think it would be pretty dangerous for the formula drivers if they ever go airborne from wheel contact.

    Cool videos Charles!

    I visited Macau on a business trip a few years back. On a free day, I visited the Macau Grand Prix Museum. For pictures, check out the link below. After the museum, I hit up one of the newer casinos and played some blackjack.

    I spend some time on the simulators which was fun:
