Sky Sports website reporting that there has been another death at the event, this time during today's qualifying for the CTM Macau Touring Car Cup.  May not be another motorbike racer but sad for motorsport in general.  R.I.P. Luis and Phillip Yau Wing-choi. Condelences with families, friends and their teams

Big loss for the portuguese fans. Carreira was a multiple Nacional SBK Champion, a very brave rider and a great guy.

In his first year in the TT he won the best rokie title. he got 4th in the Macau GP in 2008.

I'm lucky enought for have riden with him in estoril and portimão in some track days.

RIP Luis Carreira

Carreira and Wing-choi.

Modern day gladiators know the risk, need the risk, thrive on the risk. If racing were 100% safe, there would be no racing. As sad as their loss may be, they were lucky to have lived the way they wanted, and I'm sure they wouldn't have wanted it any other way. R.I.P. Fellas.
