Aussie Chaz Mostert is 18th but never haven raced in Macau its no big surprise.
Usually when Ferrari has only one car entered in the race they end up qualifying up front and winning the race. Itís crazy how it happens consistently.

Because it has the lowest downforce of any current spec GT3 car and is on a tight street circuit.

I saw the qualifying session on a video on YT somewhere. It was cool to see all of these F3 and FE drivers in the GT cars. I never heard of Mortora until today in fact. Neat that a) Rosenqvist is there b)That he is in a Scurderia Corse Ferrari. Hope someone like him and Morotra end up in a GTD car at Daytona.

How did Van der zande end up in the Acura? I don't recall any connections to him with that company. He was a Mercedes guy, now a General Motors guy.

Dang that downhill hairpin is literally wide enough for one car before the apex and its so tight. That corner is insane.

Van der Zande is a Macau GT Cup specialist and had an Italian girlfriend before.

I can see Audi and Porsche fanbase is not dealing well with Mercs dominance.

Btw I am impressed with Romain Dumas. Ironic.

The only way I see this event being doable with GT cars is by turning it into a time trial competition. Otherwise, every year is much of the same, with huge pile-ups and red flags.

But if all participating teams don't mind paying for all this unnecessary damage, then that's also fine by me...

Just seen the video of the crash, what a joke this race is, every year the accidents happen and the race gets red flagged, why does anyone bother to risk an expensive car not to mention the lives of the drivers

Somewhat of a shame that the race starts behind the SC but its probably for the best, although the track is dry enough for everyone to begin on slicks.
