Macau Guia Race 2.0T is the highest level of touring car racing on the streets of Macau for the 2016 Macau GP. As a result of regulation change, the two CTCC Teamwork Citroen are allowed to compete in this prestige race and they will be piloted by Alex HUI and Sunny WONG who have demonstrated great pace in the 2016 China Touring Car Championship (CTCC) snatching wins and poles from multiple manufacturer teams.

Founded in Los Angeles, California, GRANTT is a premium lubricant brand started by Mr. Ronald L.K. Lye in 1981. UMW Group took over the company in 1990 and plays a crucial role in developing technologies further.

By integrating GRANTT’s lubricant technology and UMW’s expertise in automotive and industrial engineering, it became one of the leading lubricant companies in Malaysia.

UMW is among the largest conglomerates in Malaysia and is public listed on the Bursa Malaysia. UMW sells 1 of 2 vehicles in Malaysia and is the largest automotive group in Malaysia through car brands like Toyota, Lexus and Perodua.

In China, GRANTT lubricants is exclusively manufactured and marketed by Lubritech Limited, a joint venture between UMW and DCH Group of Hong Kong. Lubritech’s lubricants plants is recognized as of the most advanced lubricants plants in China and specialises in supplying very premium lubricants to car & motorcycle manufacturers such as VW, Audi, Mazda, BYD, Red Flag, Honda, Aprilla and Piaggio in China.
