Schwantz raced it one time on 500 two stroke. Absolutely nuts.

It's only a matter of time before they start using the walls as part of the track.

If they had a slight bank built at bottom of wall...............holy heck!

Right they look like the walls are meant to keep bikes and bodies inside the track.

That one sets my nerves on edge

A big bonus for the British riders who mostly race closed public roads is the cash. Prize and appearance money can amount to more than a whole season at home. I didn't know Kevin Schwantz had raced and won there, I must try to find a video of that.

Future world champion Kevin Schwantz had just one thought when he scraped his racing leathers against a wall on the first turn of the Macau Grand Prix in 1988. “Holy shit,” Schwantz told me this week. “Don’t do that again.”

Yeah, I'll have to dig around this weekend to see if I can find a full race vid. That was just a quick google.

The dailymotion vid is a good one. I love watching Schwantz ride but based on what I was taught at every track school I've been to, he's definitely doing all wrong
