Munich. BMW road racer Peter Hickman (GBR) lived up to his billing as favourite on the streets of Macau (CHN). On Saturday, he took victory in the legendary Macau Motorcycle Grand Prix on a BMW S 1000 RR run by the Aspire-Ho by Bathams Racing team. This is the third time that Hickman has taken victory in the motorcycle classic at the famous “Guia Circuit”.

 

The motorcycle race on the narrow 6.120-kilometre track through the urban canyons of Macau was held for the 52nd time this year. Hickman secured pole position in qualifying, underlining his intent to continue his winning run at the “Guia Circuit”.

 

Hickman initially lost the lead at the start of the race, but the Brit soon regained his advantage. He led the field on a high-speed pursuit through the narrow streets, until the race was red flagged with just three laps remaining, presenting Hickman with victory. Second place went to his team-mate Michael Rutter (GBR), who was riding a Honda in Macau. Martin Jessopp (GBR / Ducati) finished third.

 

Danny Webb (GBR / MGM by Penz13) was also in contention for a podium spot on his RR and eventually took fourth place. David Johnson (AUS / PR Racing) was seventh. Derek Sheils (IRL / MGM by Penz13) followed directly behind in eighth while rookie Davey Todd (GBR / PuraGlobe Syntainics Racing Oil by Penz13) finished his first Macau Grand Prix in ninth position.

 

Victory in Macau is the perfect end to a successful season for Hickman, who won the Superstock race and the prestigious Senior TT at the Isle of Man Tourist Trophy in June. He also claimed race wins and podiums at the North West 200 and the Ulster Grand Prix. Hickman also made it into the British Superbike Championship (BSB) Showdown as one of the top-six riders over the course of the season.

 

Peter Hickman: “It’s fantastic for me and the team, and to give our sponsors Aspire-Ho a win here is absolutely brilliant. Michael (Rutter) made a much better start than me, which is usual. He’s always good off the line. I was quite happy just to sit there following him. Once I was in the lead I tried to get away a bit. Then I heard Martin (Jessopp) coming closer and after the third lap I got my head down a little bit to see if I can have a little bit of a gap and if I could manage it. This is basically what I did. I managed to win every international road race this year, so that’s pretty spectacular. And I was in the BSB Showdown as well – so it’s been a really good year.”

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here: https://www.dat.de/co2/.
