Munich. BMW highway racer Peter Hickman (GBR) lived adult to his
billing as favourite on a streets of Macau (CHN). On Saturday, he
took feat in a mythological Macau Motorcycle Grand Prix on a BMW S
1000 RR run by a Aspire-Ho by Bathams Racing team. This is the
third time that Hickman has taken feat in a motorcycle classic
during a famous “Guia Circuit”.
The motorcycle competition on a slight 6.120-kilometre lane by the
civic canyons of Macau was hold for a 52nd time this
year. Hickman cumulative stick position in qualifying, underlining his
vigilant to continue his winning run during a “Guia Circuit”.
Hickman primarily mislaid a lead during a start of a race, though the
Brit shortly regained his advantage. He led a margin on a high-speed
office by a slight streets, until a competition was red flagged
with only 3 laps remaining, presenting Hickman with victory.
Second place went to his team-mate Michael Rutter (GBR), who was
roving a Honda in Macau. Martin Jessopp (GBR / Ducati) finished third.
Danny Webb (GBR / MGM by Penz13) was also in row for a podium
mark 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 initial Macau Grand Prix
in ninth position.
Victory in Macau is a ideal finish to a successful deteriorate for
Hickman, who won a Superstock competition and a prestigious Senior TT at
a Isle of Man Tourist Trophy in June. He also claimed competition wins and
podiums during a North West 200 and a Ulster Grand Prix. Hickman also
done it into a British Superbike Championship (BSB) Showdown as one
of a top-six riders over a march of a season.
Peter Hickman: “It’s illusory for me and a team,
and to give a sponsors Aspire-Ho a win here is positively brilliant.
Michael (Rutter) done a most improved start than me, that is usual.
He’s always good off a line. we was utterly happy only to lay there
following him. Once we was in a lead we attempted to get divided a bit. Then
we listened Martin (Jessopp) entrance closer and after a third path we got
my conduct down a small bit to see if we can have a small bit of a gap
and if we could conduct it. This is fundamentally what we did. we managed to
win each general highway competition this year, so that’s pretty
spectacular. And we was in a BSB Showdown as good – so it’s been a
unequivocally good year.”
