Sponsors Theodore Racing in 2016 Macau Grand Prix
Theodore Racing & the BBIN Group held a Macau Grand Prix sponsorship signing ceremony in the 4th floor banquet hall of the Macau Tower. This year, the BBIN Group will support Theodore Racing as a global sponsor and partner; sponsoring the team in a number of races in Europe and Asia. As a global sponsor, the Group will provide full support to the Theodore Racing team during the 63rd Macau Grand Prix which will take place in November.
Theodore Racing and the Macau Grand Prix are closely related. In 1956, the founder of Theodore Racing, Mr. Theodore Yip, also known as "Mr. Grand Prix", participated in the Macau Grand Prix as a driver for the first time. The Macau Formula 3 race was formally upgraded to the "FIA Formula 3 World Cup" this year. Team Director Theodore Yip Jr. indicated that the team has been sponsored by BBIN Group since August of this year and has achieved encouraging results in its races in Europe. He expressed thanks to the BBIN Group for its continued support for the team during the Macau race. Macau Grand Prix is the most important flagship race for the team, and it has a special meaning to us. Today, Theodore Racing has already become a world-class racing team brand. The team won the Macau Formula 3 Grand Prix again last year. This year, the team is returning to the racing tracks in Macau, determined to set another record and compete for a ninth championship.
During the signing ceremony, a BBIN Group representative congratulated Theodore Racing for achieving its third consecutive championship this year, and expressed wishes for the team to win another championship in Macau. In addition, the representative expressed that BBIN is not only deeply rooted in Asian markets; it is even more active in international market convergence. BBIN is also an important cooperative and alliance partner for international brands entering Asia. In the future, the BBIN Group will continue to participate in important international activities.
Theodore Racing will send three drivers, including the champion of 2015 Macau Formula 3 Grand Prix, Swedish driver Felix Rosenqvist, together with the champion of 2015 Japanese Formula 3, New Zealander Nick Cassidy, as well as this year's European Formula 3 championship runner-up, Maximilian Gunther from Germany. All three will be driving Dallara Formula 3 race cars equipped with Mercedes-Benz engines during the 63rd Macau Grand Prix.
