Theodore Racing by Prema is delighted to confirm that BBIN will extend its partnership with the team to include the 63rd Macau Grand Prix in November.
Asia’s leading iGaming software supplier BBIN joined Theodore Racing as a global partner in August 2016, displaying its branding across the team’s GP2, FIA European Formula 3 and Formula 4 cars as part of the company’s enhanced focus on international business development.
The partners have shared substantial success securing four 2016 titles, becoming FIA European F3 Teams’ and Drivers’ champions plus GP2 Series and ADAC Formula 4 Teams’ Champions. This incredible success prompted BBIN to increase its sponsorship to include the 2016 Macau Grand Prix where Theodore Racing aims to secure a record ninth victory.
The 63rd Macau Grand Prix sees Theodore Racing by Prema field a highly competitive three-car entry led by reigning Macau GP Champion Felix Rosenqvist of Sweden, 2015 Japanese F3 Champion Nick Cassidy and FIA European F3 runner up Maximilian Gunther. 24-year-old Rosenqvist is in the hunt for an unprecedented third successive Macau title and is the current favourite to claim victory at the newly named FIA F3 World Cup event.
The 63rd Macau Grand Prix takes place between November 17-20 and tickets can be purchased in Macau via Kong Seng / Macau Ticketing Service at www.macauticket.com, plus a full list of outlets can be found on the official website at www.macau.grandprix.gov.mo.
Speaking about the enhanced partnership, Theodore Racing Team Principal, Teddy Yip Jr, said “It makes me very proud to see BBIN increase its support for our team and we look forward to welcoming them to our flagship event, the Macau Grand Prix.
“Macau is where Theodore Racing turned from my father’s dream to a reality and to this day it remains our spiritual home. The Macau GP remains the most important event on our race calendar and although we have won a record eight titles at the Guia street circuit, it is now our mission to achieve back-to-back victories in the wake of our 2015 success at the hands of Felix Rosenqvist.”
A BBIN spokesperson commented “As BBIN has led the Asian iGaming systems provider industry for nearly 20 years, we are committed to supporting international events. We are delighted to be a part of the 2016 Macau Grand Prix as a sponsor of the Theodore Racing by Prema team after partnering for GP2, FIA European F3 & F4 this season. We wish Theodore Racing by Prema every success at the 2016 Macau Grand Prix.”
