The 1997 Macau Grand Prix Formula Three was the 44th Macau Grand Prix race to be held on the streets of Macau on 16 November 1997. It was the fourteenth edition for Formula Three cars. Although he crashed at 250 km/h (160 mph) on the ninth lap of the first leg which necessitated a rebuild of his car, Graff Racing driver Soheil Ayari won the two-leg aggregate event by 11.5 seconds over his teammate Patrice Gay in second position. Third place was taken by Enrique Bernoldi of the Promatecme team.[1]
