Thanks to the invitation of SJM, representative of the donor of the College, students of Stanley Ho East Asia College (SHEAC) enjoyed the opportunity of a lifetime meeting the SJM Theodore Racing team and drivers at the exhilarating Guia street circuit yesterday.
Ten SHEAC students met with Theodore team principal Teddy Yip Jr. and Formula 3 drivers Esteban Ocon, Antonio Fuoco and Nicholas Latifi as the Champion team return for their 2013 Macau GP title defence. The students felt very privileged and excited about the meeting, and enjoyed chatting with the drivers, who are about the same age.
Speaking about the students’ visit, which comes through official Theodore partner SJM’s relationship with the University, Yip Jr said, “As a home-grown team with such rich heritage in Macau, it’s excellent to be in a position to engage with the local residents and give something back to the community – long may this continue!”
SJM hoped that the visit would help the students know more about and be proud of the Macau Grand Prix, a local experience that has been developed into an international sports festival.
書院師生一行十餘人昨與澳博德利賽車隊的車隊總監小葉德利，以及三位賽車手奧康（Esteban Ocon）、傅奧（Antonio Fuoco）及拉提菲（Nicholas Latifi）會面。澳博德利賽車隊是上屆的冠軍，今年再戰澳門格蘭披治三級方程式大賽衛冕冠軍。同學們能夠與冠軍車隊的車手作零距離接觸，皆表現非常興奮。車手的年齡跟同學們相近，交談起來時倍感親切。
