In celebration of the 70th anniversary of Macau Grand Prix, the Macao Government Tourism Office (MGTO) and Madame Tussauds Hong Kong will be working together for the first time to make eight wax figures modelled after accomplished racing drivers. The wax figures will be unveiled in late March at the Macao Grand Prix Museum to give visitors a better and more enriched experience.
The museum revealed the identity of the first four racing drivers — John Macdonald, Ron Haslam, Ayrton Senna da Silva, and Sebastian Vettel — after their game called “Racer Wax Figures: ‘Guess Who?’” ended on Feb. 28. Meanwhile, the identity of the remaining four racers will be announced later.
There will be an inaugural ceremony where residents and visitors can join the unveiling of the wax figures. The exact date is also yet to be announced.
The Macao Grand Prix Museum reopened in 2021 with a brand-new look, showcasing more multimedia interactive features, motorsport exhibits, racing scenario displays, and barrier-free facilities. It’s open daily (except Tuesdays) from 10 AM to 6 PM. For more information, visit their official website.
