Ha ha! Yes, but we race together, in same time same race track, but not in same group! We were S group, other cars, like RSX they were in A group, depends on the engine and the rules of tuning. Every endurance race always mix different group in one race! Same in China, same in other countries!

LoL yep! The M3 looks like a men racing against boys out there.
Actrully, Evo in this race, they were quite light! Round about 1000k, and powerful than us, round about 600hp. And 4wd.
Now you still think the race was very easy for M3?

considering the track favors high horsepower cars (two long straights with short tight curves at the ends) yes i would think the M3 in 3 hours would do pretty well in this field. how did the evo do? highly tuned cars tend to not last too long in an endurance race. I take it S class is just the 2 M3's. who finished 2nd overall?

endurance race is all about being fast but most importantly finishing the race. thats a feat in itself. congratulations again. I'm excited that motorsport is becoming more accessible to China however i would choose to compete in an RSX since there is a vast field of them.

I race enduro's here in germany. the class I'm in is 2.5-3L RWD NA cars. probably moving to Clio Cup next season since there are 30 of those cars per race so more fun dicing it out.

Nice, it must have been fun blowing by most of the other cars on the track as you lapped them over and over.
