Forty-year-old Hong Kong driver Phillip Yau “succumbed to injuries sustained in a racing accident during the qualifying session this afternoon”, the organisers said.
The Macau GP covers four days of events including the 12-lap CTM Macau Touring Car Cup and the 46th Macau Motorcycle GP on Saturday, followed by Sunday’s SJM Formula Three Macau GP.
Hong Kong TV reported that Yau died after his car hit a wall at more than 200 KMPH.
Portuguese bike rider Luis Filipe de Sousa Carreira was killed in an accident during a qualifying session for the Macau GP on Thursday.
