Grand Prix Museum of Macau
The Grand Prix Museum of Macau opened in 1993 in commemoration of the 40th anniversary of the Macau Grand Prix – which features a number of automobile and motorbike races annually in November. The Macau Grand Prix started in 1954 borne out of the enthusiasm of a group of Macau residents and the support of local authorities. Today it is an international sporting event that attracts thousands of racing enthusiasts to Macau every year. It features the classic “Guia Race” and the “Formula 3 Grand Prix” and is of high acclaim.
The races take place on a street circuit, inevitably leading to a comparison with the Monte Carlo races. The Macau Grand Prix itself has developed into a race that sees the participation of many great names in the motor racing world. This is due to the precision which it imposes on the drivers and it’s critical international acclaim as well as the popularity of Macau itself. The participation by many racers has served as a launching platform for many of their careers and the boast of their names in the racing world, visitors fond of Formula or traditional street circuit racing are sure to recognize these names while visiting the Grand Prix Museum.
In celebration of the 50th Macau Grand Prix, the Macau Government Tourism Office has carried out extensive renovations and upgrades to modernize the Museum in 2003.
The Museum’s main purpose is ot pay trivute to individuals who have made extensive contributions to the success of the Grand Prix, namely Teddy Yip, Laurel, Paul Du Toit, Ayrton Senna, and John Corsmit, among many others of notable mention. We encourage vistors to come discover all the exhibits of the Grand Prix Museum, where a collection of marveled machines that were raced and won the Guia circuit represent the history of one of the most astounding circuits in the world.
