From track marshal to Macau champion
Filipe Souza has accomplished a childhood aspiration in his hometown of Macau Guia Race. The racer won the Guia Race with an Audi RS 3 LMS gen II, which has been held since 1972.
As a result, the 46-year-old privateer driver is the first Macau Guia Race native to accomplish this feat. Souza was seven years old when he saw Ayrton Senna win the 1983 Formula 3 Grand Prix in Macau as a spectator before becoming a race marshal. He subsequently started racing himself on his hometown’s street circuit. Since 2018, Souza has relied on the Audi RS 3 LMS.
On Saturday the track was set on Macau Guia Race, he started third in the first race but slid to sixth after a terrible start. When one driver collided in front of him and another spun, partly closing the circuit, the Audi driver matched the distance and surged from fifth to first, which he maintained uncontested until the finish.
Hu Heng finished second, while Cheong Chi On finished third, rounding off an all-Audi podium. Souza took the lead from grid position one on Sunday. However, close behind the Audi from Team Champ Motorsport came Lo Sze Ho in a Hyundai and Honda driver Andy Yan at the Macau Guia Race.
The three had passed the start and finish in tight order after a safety car period when Lo collided at the fast Mandarin turn, bringing out the red flag and ending the race. The scoring took conducted after the last lap under green flag circumstances, which Souza had led.
Filipe Souza continued a string of important Audi triumphs in the famous tournament with victory in the two sprints on Saturday and Sunday during the 50th edition of the Guia race: Audi had really won this race at the Macau Guia Race.
