The reigning champions following Glenn Irwin’s victory last year on only his second visit to the 6.12km Circuito Da Guia aboard the TAK CHUN Racing by PBM-branded Ducati, Glenn announced following that victory that he had no plans to return, so the team has secured the services of 23-times TT winner John McGuinness for the annual race alongside BSB ace Jessopp.

Lancastrian McGuinness sampled victory for Paul Bird’s team back in 2001 and has recently returned from injury to take a win at the Classic TT so is looking forward to competing again at Macau.

McGuinness will be joined by Yeovil’s Martin Jessopp who took his debut win at this year’s North West 200 as well as posting a string of top seven results at the 2018 Isle of Man TT Races.

This year’s Macau Grand Prix takes place from 15th to 18th November.

Michael Rutter has won more Macau GPs than any other rider, here he leads in 2016
