Theodore “Teddy” Yip was one of the main forces behind the Macau Grand Prix back in the 1970s and 1980s, leading this Grand Prix to be one of the world’s most famous motor racing events. 
He was also a enthusiastic motor racer and began competing for fun in the 50’s in a Jaguar XK120. 
In 1963 he reached his first and only podium in a JAGUAR E Type (n°31) before racing a PORSCHE 906 Spider (n°49) in 1970. Teddy Yip’s last entry in the Macau Grand Prix was in 1975 at the weel of a ELFIN 600 B before taking over the management of his racing team THEODORE RACING with some international and local success, having eventually reached Formula 1 between the years 1977 and 1983.
