Consisting of two chapters “Imprinted moments” and “Competition and Professionalism”, the five-minute show takes audiences to set off from the Museum, revisit memories from the start and look toward the future. In a panoramic picture, it highlights the beauty of the circuit and motor racing, the thrill of the competition and the glorious moments of trophy presentation, all pointing to the glamour of the Macau Grand Prix on the way to its platinum jubilee. The mapping art brings into life an enthralling feast of light and sound.

Museumgoers can put on the VR headsets at the Museum for a replay of the Macau Touring Car Cup – China Touring Car Championship in the Macau Grand Prix in 2022.
