The World Touring Car Championship’s return to the streets of Macau will see the series field 20 cars, its biggest entry list of the season to-date.

The grid has been expanded with Sébastien Loeb Racing fielding a fourth Citroën C-Elysée WTCC for former WTCC race-winner Ma Qing Hua, as well as a pair of Chevrolet RML Cruzes entered by Campos Racing for two Hong Kong drivers.

Macau local Mak Ka Lok will make a return to the WTCC grid, taking over the controls of RC Motorsport’s third LADA Vesta from his countryman Filipe de Souza, who is competing in the CTM Macau Touring Car Cup and is ineligible to contest two events under the Guia Race event rules.

Hong Kong drivers Wong Po Wah and Chan Kin Pong will make their WTCC debuts in a pair of Chevrolet Cruzes entered by Campos Racing, which currently runs Esteban Guerrieri full-time. For the first time this season, four Chevrolets will be on track.

The Guia Race of Macau will take place on November 18-19 as a support category to the annual Formula 3 Grand Prix, with the Opening Race taking place on the Saturday and Main Race occurring on the Sunday.
