(Macau, 19 November 2015) Students from the Honours College of the University of Macau (“UM”) visited the SJM Theodore Racing garage at the Macau Grand Prix paddock today, where they met the team’s Principal Mr. Teddy Yip Jr. and the three drivers Felix Rosenqvist, Jake Dennis and Lance Stroll.
In the afternoon, fifteen students from UM’s Honours College visited the SJM Theodore Racing garage and enjoyed the warm hospitality of the team. During the visit, the students were introduced to the team and learned about how it operates and prepares for the upcoming races. The students felt very privileged to have the opportunity to meet with the most successful team in the history of Macau Grand Prix, and enjoyed speaking to Teddy Jr. and the three young drivers. SJM hopes that the visit will increase the students’ interest and participation in the Macau Grand Prix, making them proud of this locally developed international sports event.
Speaking about the students’ visit, Mr. Teddy Yip Jr. said, “Meeting the University students last year was an absolute pleasure. I’m so pleased that with our title sponsor SJM we have the opportunity to repeat this gesture with a new group of students, and this time with the Honours College, whose students come from the top echelons of the University. Seeing them enjoy the atmosphere first-hand was a real delight and you never know, maybe this experience will motivate them to get involved with motorsport and the Grand Prix in years to come.”
SJM continues to be the title sponsor and official partner of the SJM Theodore Racing team for the 62nd Macau Grand Prix. This year the team also welcomes ICBC (Macau) as the promotion partner.
