MITSUBISHI played a starring role alongside martial-arts movie superstar Jackie Chan and a lineup of Asia's leading actresses at the recent Macau Grand Prix.

The 15 Mitsubishi Lancers (called as Mitsubishi Lancer-Cedia in the Japan market and refers to the new model Lancer) and an open-topped Pajero iO were key players in the Golden Harvest/Mitsubishi Jackie Chan Cup - the annual celebrity race at the GP meeting.

Starlets from Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Korea drove the Lancers - each with a professional racing driver alongside to guide them.

Jackie Chan led the field on two parade laps of the Macau street circuit in the open-topped, 1800cc Pajero before acting as official starter for the race.

It's the first time that the annual Jackie Chan race has enlisted actresses Asia-wide to drive.

Thai starlet Anongnad Tanwimon - guided by top Asian touring car driver (and Macau street race veteran) Charles Kwan - won the race in Lancer No. 14. Singaporean Zoe Tay was next (with co-driver Ken Ma) and Malaysian Joey Tan was third (accompanied by much-experienced touring car racer Rui Clementi).

Taiwanese Annie Wu crashed her car in the race - escaping without serious injury. She was later awarded the "most ladylike driver" prize.

Korean starlet Shanna Han won the most stylish driver award and the best potential driver was judged to be new Golden Harvest movie studio discovery Audrey Fang.
