Nascar in China

13 Sep

Not so fast Nascar fans(pun intended).  While Formula 1 has a large audience here, the more American styles of car racing have a long way to go.  A recent event hosted by P1.cn (the chinese equivalent to Facebook except you have to be invited) proved that unlike in America, a racing event in China (with over a billion more people than the US mind you) cannot pull in 100,000+ screaming (okay…often drunk) fans and cause traffic jams for miles.  The fact the we were allowed to chill inside the flag box says a lot, but the picture of the empty stands below says it best.

We really did have such a great time though – 100,000 other fans or not.  Our friends Moya and David (who invited us) were a blast as always.  Plus, there was a VIP room with food, free drinks, and most importantly air conditioning to get a break from the Beijing heat.  And, as you will see below – we had fun playing in P1’s photo booths!

Morgan Hutchinson and Moya Li. Do you like how we both dressed for a racing event?
