Caution At Macau Racing

Visited the Macau karting track over the holidays and, along with many others, was disappointed to be turned away. The reason? It had begun to rain lightly. This was on 28 December 2017, which remained sunny, bright and breezy despite the minute sprinkling of rain at around 1415hrs.

Although many people tried to reason with them, the government-employed staff stuck stubbornly to the fact that they had seen some rain droplets and therefore closed the track. This is obviously no way to run a business ... but it is typical of how government staff run things ... be safe, be conservative and be sure there are no ways to endanger their "precious" jobs.

The absurdity is that before anyone can go on the track, waiver forms have to be signed anyway so that there are no liability issues in the first place. Visitors race at their own peril, and everyone present that day knew that a little rain should not be an excuse to prevent them from racing.

Thanks to the staff at Coloane Karting Track for ruining everyone's afternoon of what should have been a fun day at the races !!
