well for this year i am running in the CTCC It's been open for xpax now ..before you had to be chines to run in that class but more and more of us is here and people are really wanting to see it happen ...be for it has always been a pride thing here for chines drivers to have there own high class racing with out being beat by out sliders ....but to tell the truth there ok drivers but don't have a clue on all the tricks and china drivers have a hard time trying to ex plane to there crews whats the car really doing and how to make adjustments... my years in karting i waxed there ass but by the third year it was getting clear there picking up on things i was doing which started making them faster ... the first outing with the car was ok or so so  in my eyes ..in there eyes  it was crazy fast and unbelievable  not understanding that the car can go faster and handle better ..take tires ..there thinking fast ..I am thinking handling and tire wear which will make me faster in the long run ..not make me work so hard driving  it  and have less pits stops during race ...this has always been there down fall go fast now worry about the other stuff later ...if i can say one thing about china drivers and crews here it would be there lack of understanding down the road or thinking ahead ..there driving skills is the same always watching the car in front of them and never looking further down the track or looking across to another turn for trouble . I see this all the time in the 5 years I have been racing here.. but there learning and i think that the people higher up see's this in us xpax drivers and want the china drivers to learn all this ...
