“All my dreams have come true!” - FHO boss Faye Ho savours victorious Macau GP homecoming

Macau Grand Prix

Faye Ho says she is ‘so proud’ of her FHO Racing team following its landmark victory on home soil in the Macau Grand Prix.

In a year that has already seen the BMW Motorrad UK-backed outfit taste the winners’ champagne in the British Superbike Championship [BSB] and at the Isle of Man TT, Peter Hickman saw out FHO Racing’s 2023 campaign in style with a dominant victory on the Guia Street Circuit. 

While Hickman and the team itself - formerly known as Smiths Racing - have previously tasted success in Macau, this was its first victory under the FHO Racing banner and, more poignantly, a first for Ho in her role as team manager.


With her decision to purchase Smiths Racing in 2021 inspired by her having sponsored several riders competing at the Macau GP in the years prior, Ho says winning at home with her own team is a ‘dream come true’.

“Well, what can I say! This week all my dreams have come true! Coming back to Macau, my home with my own team, leading every session and then taking the win – it doesn’t get much better than that. 

“Peter has ridden fantastically all week and a huge thanks to the team for all their hard work in making this possible. It’s been an amazing week and I’m so proud of the FHO Racing team – 2023 Macau GP winners!”

In addition to Hickman taking the flag by almost half-a-minute ahead of Davey Todd, Josh Brookes turned heads with his run to fourth on his Macau debut, while nine-time winner Michael Rutter failed to finish after hitting technical issues.

“Josh [Brookes] has really impressed everyone with his attitude to the race and how he’s progressed, I think with a little more track experience he could have pushed for the podium.  

“It was such a shame that Michael experienced the issue he did, as I think without that we could have seen a FHO Racing 1-2 on the podium, but this year it wasn’t meant to be.”
