    A dreadful crash during qualifying for the Macau Motorcycle Grand Prix claimed the life of Portuguese motorcycle racer Luis Carreira today. Carreira was riding a Suzuki for the Benimoto/Rider/Cetelem team.

    Rest in peace Luis, though I did not know you, see you, or hear of you, you lived your dreams. And for that, I look up to you.

    Terrible news. It’s always tragic to hear of someone losing their life whilst competing in motorsport.

    Thoughts are with his friends and family. RIP

    He was driving a Chevrolet Cruze for the Look Fong Racing Team and crashed at Mandarin Bend during qualifying. Statement here:

    This is awful. RIP to both drivers, and of course let’s hope the weekend has no more fatal accidents.

    This isn’t good, I’m not going to pretend I knew either of the two racers but it’s sad to have two fatalities over the weekend. Please, no more.

    RIP

    Absolutely awful news. We all know that motorsport is dangerous, and that Macau isn’t exactly a Tikle-drome, but it’s still shocking when a tragedy happens.
