In 1988, Schwantz headed to the dangerous Macau street circuit with Suzuki, which also offered an opportunity to reward his five crew members with a week off in Thailand once the competition was over. With only a few practice laps under his belt, Schwantz shredded 7 seconds off the outright lap record, a testament to his riding ability.
In the race, he disappeared off into the distance and with such a commanding early lead, decided to give the crowd and the press photographers their money’s worth by putting on a spectacular show of wheelies galore on his shrieking two-stroke RGV500!
