Last year's edition attracted record viewers
The Macau Grand Prix continues to grow each year, with last year's edition attracting a record number of viewers to TV and online. Ninety-three networks broadcast more than 1,003 hours of coverage to hundreds of millions around the globe. Introduced for the first time last year and carried by the world's largest motorsport online portals, the official Macau Grand Prix live stream contributed towards the more than 11.5 million viewers watching on computers and mobile devices, bringing the event to a whole new generation of fans.
Providing media coverage of the event were 1,125 accredited journalists from 251 media organisations representing 24 countries and territories. The official website, meanwhile, received more than 16 million hits over the four-day event.
Promotion already well underway
Promotion for this year's event both at home and abroad is already well underway, and will increase throughout the year. A well attended Macau Grand Prix promotion was held at the Chinese F1 Grand Prix in Shanghai in April, while here in Macao educational visits to the Grand Prix facilities by local schoolchildren have already begun.
