Monkey Head should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Macau GT 2012

Yr.2012 will be the 5th year of Macau GT cup race.Continue being the final rounds of GT Asia 2012,the invitational race keep field by Top Asian and European Sportcar drivers.

Singaporean Mok wing Sun was top finished GT Asia driver and defending champion this year.This year he keep running with his Ferrari 458 and 7 points behind Asia Racing Team's Li Chi Cong who driving Porsche 911 GT3R.Both of them will be contending 2012 title in streets of macau with other competitors such as Jeffrey Lee/Marchy Lee(Absolute Racing/Audi R8 Ultra),Hisao Shigeta(Direction Racing/Porsche 911 GT3R)and Frank Yu (Craft Eurasia Racing/Ford GT or Aston Martin Vantage GT3).Of Course 2010 series champion Malagamuwa will field his Gallardo LP560 too.Moreover some spot entry in 2012 Season possible to join the race too .They are Hiroshi Hamaguchi (Clearwater Racing/Ferrari 458 GT3) ,Hisamori Hayashi (Direction Racing/Porsche 911 GT3R) and Siu Yuk Lung (LKM Racing/Porsche 911 GT3 cup MY 2011 or Lambo Gallardo LP 560) .Another series registered entrant David Lai has skipped Macau race last year,his Ferrari 458 may lease to a local hero.
Also Jeffrey and Marchy may have their own cars in macau due to only one driver permitted per car in Macau GT cup race.


Except the series runners in GT Asia there are plenty famous driver from Asia,Japan and europe.Macau GT cup defending Champion Edoardo Mortara is strongly possible making return with Audi Customer Racing Experience China and willing to take his 4th constructive victory in macau (plus 2 F3 champion).However his defending road will be more diffcult that last year:2010 LM 24 Champion Romain Dumas has announced his entry during Pikes Peak with his identical Porsche 911 GT3R used in the prestigious hill climb event.In addition this car is rebuilt from last year Macau GT serious accident.Two time Macau GT Champion Keita Sawa also make his return this year with a brand new Porsche 911 GT3R,convert from LP560 used by last two years:United Autosports also making their annual visit after they restructured their racing campaign during mid season,Danny Watts would trying to archive better result with his Mclaren MP4-12C by much better mileage on the vehicle.His teammate Ricard meins has chance to drive the same model too.

For remaining entries slot,British F3 National Class winner ,HK's Adderly Fong has intend his willing to GT cup earlier this year too,and he has raced in Porsche Carrera Cup Asia for meeting requirement of the race (at least one FIA International Series' Race this year).Most probably he will drive Gallardo(either proper GT3 or one-make series car) ,but we can't rule out he will back to F3.

2011 Participant Hitotsuyama Racing team have switched their campaign from Super Taikyu to SGT this year.And final invitation race JAF GP is on same day of Macau GP.Therefore they are unlikely to comeback even though they made one GT Asia Appearance with former WTCC driver Y Taniguchi in Fuji.Same case as 2011 5th finished ,current GT300 point leader Tomonobu Fuiji.

GT Asia Round 2 winner,Hamaguchi from Japan possible enter the race with F458 prepared by Clearwater racing too

Many people will look forward to this race after seeing how they crashed last year. You don't get to see a Lamborghini and a Porsche crash on live TV very often.
