BBIN and Theodore Racing team up for 64th Macau Grand Prix

Theodore Racing by Prema is proud to confirm that it will once again enjoy a partnership with Asia’s leading iGaming software supplier BBIN during next month’s 64th edition of the iconic Macau Grand Prix (16-19 November).

BBIN joined Theodore Racing as a global partner in August 2016 as the company ramped up its focus on international business development, and it has continued to support the team this season – one that has yielded considerable success, including the FIA Formula 2 Drivers’ Championship with Charles Leclerc and the FIA Formula 3 European Championship Teams’ title.

Theodore Racing has its sights set on a record-breaking ninth victory in the legendary Macau Grand Prix – the official FIA F3 World Cup. Having last triumphed two years ago, the squad is bidding to regain its crown with a potent and highly-rated four-strong driver line-up, as announced earlier this week.

Maximilian Günther and Ferrari Academy Driver Callum Ilott both won multiple races in FIA European F3 this year so are hotly-tipped to shine, while fellow Ferrari Academy Driver Zhou Guan Yu tallied five podium finishes in the same series and went from strength-to-strength as the season progressed. The final name, meanwhile, is perhaps the most well-known.

Eighteen-year-old Mick Schumacher impressed over the course of his rookie campaign in European F3 in 2017, and will be aiming to cap it in fine style in the most celebrated F3 race of all.

Theodore Racing Team Principal, Mr. Teddy Yip Jr., said: “It is wonderful news to have our loyal partner, BBIN, back on-board again for the flagship event on our 2017 racing calendar. It is no secret that the Macau Grand Prix holds a special significance for Theodore Racing as the team’s spiritual home, and we are immensely proud of our strong success record around the Guia street circuit. With Maximilian, Callum, Zhou and Mick, we are confident of being able to add to that success next month.”

BBIN commented, “as BBIN lead the Asian iGaming industry for over 20 years, we are committed to support international events. It is delighted to be a part of MACAU GRAND PRIX 2017 again as the sponsor of Theodore Racing Team after completing the races of FIA Formula 2, FIA Formula 3 European Championship & Formula 4 Championships. We wish Theodore Racing every success in the 2017 season. After sharing in the team’s title successes this season in FIA F2 and FIA European F3, to add another Macau trophy to the cabinet would really be the icing on the cake.”

The Theodore Racing drivers will address the media in a press conference with BBIN at the hotel Roosevelt, Macau on Wednesday, November 15, 2017.
