Macau, it is the first time in Asia.
Our Tony Kart Racing Team will be engaged on the interesting track in the Coloane peninsula.
The recent editions of the CIK-FIA Asia Pacific took place on this track too.
The two last editions of this event were won by our Racer EVR-Vortex driven by Ardigò.
The track is 1.203 meters long and has a width from 8 to 12 meters, in clockwise direction.
It has 12 bends, 5 on the left and 7 on the right, a part is characterized by fast bends and in the central
part there are “S” bends, both fast and slow.
This track has a quite abrasive asphalt because only a few races take place here moreover nearby there
are the quarries and the wind takes the sand on the road.
This particular conditions will force our Racing Team staff to pay particular attention to the set up of the
Racer EVR in order to safeguard the tires. In fact the status of the tires can make the difference during the
final phase of the race.
The Tony Kart Racing Team will go down to the track with three Asiatic drivers, besides the World
Champion in charge Ardigò, Gary Catt and Flavio Camponeschi. Moreover two Chinese drivers David Zhu
and Hongwei Cao will make their international début.
