Watson's has been a sponsor for numerous teams and drivers at the Macau Grand Prix. They made their debut in 1985 when Gianfranco Brancatelli won the Guia Race in a Tom Walkinshaw Racing Rover 3500 and then the following year when Andy Wallace won the Formula Three event. Watson's won again in 1987, with the Mr. Juicy brand, thanks to a great drive by Ireland's former Formula One driver Martin Donnelly in the typhoon affected race. In 1989, Tim Harvey brought the team more success with his Guia Race win in a BMW.[1]

In the 2000s, Watson's Water has sponsored other winning teams and drivers including Duncan Huisman who won the Guia Race four times.
