Huisman wins Guia race in Macau

Duncan Huisman from Holland has won the two-leg Guia touring car race here in Macau in his Carly Motors BMW 320i. Second overall was Nicola Larini in his Alfa Romeo 147. Larini tried all he knew to get in the slipstream of Huisman on the long Macau straight but was unable to mount a challenge at the end. The race featured a 160 mph crash by Macau driver Andre Couto whose tyres were starting to go away - finally he hit the wall at Mandarin Oriental in spectacular fashion bringing his day to a premature close. British driver Anthony Davidson moved up to third from fifth on the grid in his Honda Civic but dropped back later ending his chances against the tyre barrier at the Lisboa Bend. He eventually finished fourteenth.
The top six were Huisman, Larini, Engstler, Taniguchi, Harrison, and Scharmach.
