Macao’s entry to the awards was directed by Sérgio Basto Perez, a local filmmaker that has been in charge of video and filmmaking at MGTO for several years, who drew together a team of local talents to present the history of the Macau Grand Prix, guided by the voices of drivers and riders from the past and present. The film captures a glimpse of the unique atmosphere, character and emotion of a Macau Grand Prix weekend.
