Third Portuguese in the Macau Grand Prix

BUTStarting from third place on the grid, the 37-year-old South African-born driver who has lived in the Algarve since 2012 managed to take the lead in one of the opening corners.

However, after problems with the bike, Morais was again overtaken on lap three by Finland’s Erno Juhani Kostamo, who ended up winning by eight seconds ahead of Germany’s David Mario Datzer.

This was the first time that a Portuguese rider had taken the podium at the Macau Motorcycle Grand Prix. The last Portuguese to win one of the main races in Guia was António Félix da Costa, who won the Macau Formula 4 Grand Prix in 2016.

Also Portuguese André Silva Pires, 33, in his eighth participation in the Macau Grand Prix, finished seventh in his best ranking.

Dutch rider Nadi Joni Skoots, the first woman to compete in the Macau Motorcycle Grand Prix, finished in 12th place at the end of eight laps of the Guia circuit.

Contrary to expectations, there was only one race in the motorcycle race.

The first race, scheduled for Saturday, was canceled at the request of the riders, who considered the track dangerous due to the presence of oil stains at various points. Something even led to the postponement of the second race for today.

After a year where only riders from China, Hong Kong and Macau competed due to restrictions imposed by the covid-19 pandemic, the 2022 race saw more than 170 riders, including 19 foreigners, especially on bikes.

The four-day event features seven races: the Macau Formula 4 Grand Prix, Macau GT Cup, Macau Guia Race, Macau Touring Car Cup, GT Grand Baia Cup, Macau Roadsport Challenge and the Macau Motorcycle Grand Prize, which returns to the Guia Circuit for its 54th issue.

Held on the iconic 6.2 km urban circuit, the Grand Prix is ​​Macau’s largest sporting event and is considered one of the most dangerous motorsport events in the world, as the track is only seven meters wide in some places.

The public must wear a mask, maintain social distancing, take temperatures and present a green health code at the entrance to the Macau Grand Prix venue as new cases of covid-19 are reported again in the city.

Macau closed its borders in March 2020, and since then, people arriving in the territory, with the exception of mainland China, have been required to quarantine in hotels designated by the authorities, which is currently set for five days.

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
