2003 Macau Motor Cycle Grand Prix


OK everyone...just follow my lead...


...keep up, keep up!...


Morrison up the inside of Lougher at the Melco Hairpin...now that's tight...


Steve Plater No.5 and Ryan Farquhar No.25


...it just looks to me as if he's saying "Aiyaah!...you funny racing man!"
Aussie Josh Waters who finished 3rd in the 125 Race


The Champ yet again...


John McGuinness, Michael Rutter and old Mr. Endurance himself, Brian Morrison

Michael Rutter got away at the start, chased by John McGuinness and Brian Morrison but Brian hit a false neutral going into the Lisboa corner for the first time and was passed by Marcus Barth, Stuart Easton and Ian Lougher - on the climb up San Francisco hill he was lying 6th but managed to reel in and pass everyone except Rutter and McGuinness. Morrison was able to match the times set by John McGuinness but was unable to catch him and finished in 3rd. Rutter meanwhile had pushed from the start, breaking the lap record by nearly a second before easing off to the end of the race as his tyres started to go off.

Stuart Easton would quite possibly have been on the podium if it hadn't been for running wide at the extremely tight Melco Hairpin. He had to extricate himself from the armco barrier and dropped from 3rd to 16th but fought back to finish 5th.

Steve Plater was right next to Pete Jennings on the grid who may have twitched a bit at the start - which was enough for Plater to let out the clutch and fire the bike off the line...and consequently suffer a jump-start penalty. Nevertheless, on the way to third place, Plater took the fastest Supersport lap on the Honda Racing 600...he broke the Supersport lap record by a massive four and-a-half seconds!
Australian Cameron Donald won the 600 class on the Zongshen Yamaha, with Kiwi newcomer Bruce Anstey just under 2 seconds behind him on the Valmoto 600 Triumph.

Iain Duffus had a bit of a wild time after having to come in with a flat tyre after the warm-up lap. With cold air pumped in to the tyre just before the start, apparently Duffus had some wild moments on the first lap with a cold tyre!
