Road race specialist Ian Hutchinson will go to the Macau GP with MSS Kawasaki and partner Steve Allan, the Supersport lap record holder and three times winner.

He will be up against seasoned Macau experts John McGuinness and Michael Rutter but team boss Nick Morgan is quietly confident.

“As a celebration of road racing, and simply what the true spirit of competition is, the Macau Grand Prix takes some beating,” said Nick Morgan. “Mike Trimby, and the rest of the organisers both in the UK and on the peninsular of Macau, have always blended a professional true road race event with a degree of fun and entertainment sadly lacking in Europe’s multi million pound racing circus”.
Regarding the rider line up, Morgan was understandably enthusiastic to see the return of Allan, in addition to having the undoubted race winning potential of Hutchinson as part of the team.


“Steve has not really played much part in UK racing this year”, admitted Morgan. “That said he is a proven winner at Macau and knows the circuit like the back of his hand. He understands just how far you can push on a track with little or no run-off and has a riding style that is both economical and measured – exactly what is needed for Supersport success."

Of Hutchinson, Morgan has high hopes while remaining pragmatic about the undoubted challenges of a pure street circuit. “Ian is Mr 110% and that is something we will have to channel if he is to dominate the big Superbike race. He’ll be up against the likes of Rutter and McGuiness who are acknowledged Macau experts, but that neither daunts “Hutchy” or us. The way I see it there are perhaps less that half a dozen riders that can win the Superbike race at Macau.. and we have one of ‘em – bring it on!”
