Hutchinson storms to victory at Macau

Ian Hutchinson stormed to a superb race victory at the 47th Macau GP today – his first appearance with the Milwaukee Yamaha team since the announcement was made earlier this week.

Despite having not raced for over a year, Hutchinson was keen to improve on the third place finish he achieved at Macau in 2011. This looked set to become a reality when he clinched pole position during yesterday’s qualifying by just 0.057s from SMT Racing’s Michael Rutter, who has won the Macau GP a staggering eight times.

In the opening laps, Hutchinson and Rutter pushed for the lead, but the Milwaukee Yamaha rider managed to edge out a two-second advantage before the race was stopped with two laps remaining due to a crash by RC Express Kawasaki’s Dean Harrison.

Quattro Plant Motorsports rider Gary Johnson completed the podium, while Honda TT Legends’ John McGuinness finished fourth.

Macau GP race result:

  1. Ian Hutchinson (Milwaukee Yamaha)
  2. Michael Rutter (SMT Racing) +2.418s
  3. Gary Johnson (Quattro Plant Motorsports) +8.741s
  4. John McGuinness (Honda TT Legends) +23.018s
  5. James Storrar (DMR Racing) +24.271s
