    Default Update...

    Attended the event in Shanghai. What a race! It's a street circuit located in the Pudong New District.

    Next year, the same event might be held on Nov 6, 2011. Though there was some speculations it will be moved to a street circuit in Beijing.

    Hope that you can watch my races in China in the future. I am working on a couple options/sponsors in 2011/2012. Stay tuned!!

    If you do race, will you be able to get me a paddock pass?

    Btw, we have a mutual friend...Simon Chiu. Interestingly enough, he and I share the same birth date.

    Sounds lime everyone enjoyed the event atmosphere, but the race itself was... Less than ideal. But track layouts can definitely be fixed a lot easier than fan interest.

    Yes the race itself is quite mundane. Hence we stayed in the paddock to watch most of the action instead.

    Yes the track is a bit too short, slippery. I actually won a ride in a DTM AMG car around the track. The officials did something to improve the traction and also shift the pit-in barrier on Sunday.
