Phillip Yau Wing Choi, from Hong Kong, succumbed to injuries suffered in a crash at Mandarin Bend in qualifying for the Macau Touring Car Cup, a support race to the Macau Grand Prix. The incident comes a day after Portuguese motorcycle rider Luis Filipe de Sousa Carreira died after a crash at Fisherman's Bend at the Guia circuit.

The annual Macau meeting attracts competitors from all over the world to compete in a range of categories, and is the blue riband event of both the Formula Three and World Touring Car Championships.
