I was lucky enough to watch it in 2009, sat by the first corner after the start/finish straight. Easton was in a totally different league. An amazing place to watch a bike race, you can't believe how narrow it is in places, the stretch after Lisboa especially. Would love to be there again. Bonkers place Macau, tons of history mixed with a crazy number of massive Casinos! Come on the Blade! get that extra win.

the last meeting of the year and the end of season party is in full swing.lets hope all the riders have a safe Macau 2011.It is a dangerous circuit,similar to Monaco.probably the most dangerous circuit any where on the planet to race a superbike.It is also very testing on the bikes and tyres with the heat and humidity at Macau. good luck to everybody at Macau.
