On November 18th, Giti Tire took part in the 65th edition of the famous Macau Grand Prix, sponsoring and providing tires to all drivers in the Lotus Cup racing competition.
The event was one of six during the Grand Prix weekend, which brings racers and spectators from all around the world to the exciting street-circuit motorsports events around the city and ocean side of the historic city of Macau.
In total, 21 cars participated in the Giti-sponsored Lotus Cup, all utilizing Lotus Exige vehicles, top racing technology, and Giti GitiCompete GTR1 tires driven by strong competitors from all around the region. Giti branding was showcased on each car, as well as on signage and on drivers' apparel.
The action-packed Lotus Cup race officially kicked off at 9:35 in the morning on the 18th, and included many lead changes and tough battles among the leaders, particularly Macao’s Kong Kin Chong and Hong Kong’s Lo Ka Fai. After the dust settled, Kong Kin Chong edged out Lo Ka Fai by only 0.9 seconds for the title of the Lotus Cup champion, while Mak Ka Lok of Macau finished third.
