I just wanted to come by and say hello to the car enthusiasts here and
let you know about us.

We are a non-profit organization established in Hong Kong to sanction
motorsports in China, Hong Kong and Asia. The motorsports in particular are
Drag Races, Drift Competitions, Car Show & Stereo competitions and more. The founders have over 30 combined years of experience organizing and promoting successful events in America.

Our goal is to organize the first sanctioned National Drag and Drift Series in China. The overall results we want to have is to bring street racing away from the public roads and onto the track. It's safer, legal and you get a "Speed Ticket" of how fast your car can actually go to show your friends.

The first event being organized is the Beijing International Motorsports Festival during the October National holiday. We are partnering with FRD C-1 National Super Speed Challenge Series, Beijing Round and add our Drag and Drift competitions and much more. There's a lot we have planned and have a lot more work to get the 5 day festival ready. We are looking for a primary sponsor, participants, competitors, helpers, merchants and more. Visit us here: www dot asiamotorsports dot org (Typed due to a limitation of posting url with less than 10 posts)

Thank you for your time and support the China Car Forums sponsors! I like to hear any comments or questions you may have.

Thank you for the welcome!

I'm glad to say our site is close to being done, just final detail touches to clean up the sample/test entries and more information about the Beijing International Motorsports Festival.

I greatly appreciate the support Ash and the rest of CCF has provided us. Post any questions or comments, I'll respond to them here.

Keep up the great work guys!

This is the NHRA web site...click

You can watch brief videos of qualifying and the finals for the different events, you need QuickTime to watch the videos. It will give you a taste of what drag racing is all about.

This is the season opener at Pomona...Click

Thanks AGR. I've been working on the website -breaking the website- etc. If you see something that needs fixing, let me know.

That is our goal and try avoid the problems other places have with street racing overall.

We are in the process adapting the various rules and regulations from FIA, NHRA, IDRC etc for China and go through the translation process, as you can imagine, it's a long and 'dry' work. Once it is done we can do the fun work of signing up members and promoting the event(s)!

I have to clean up our gallery so you guys and girls can post up pictures of your rides and vote who has some nice pictures!

AMA Director,

I just spent some time on your site, numerous photos are not coming up, and some are quite blurry. I'm not a website expert...but photos should download quickly, and be clear.

Take a look at Pinks its a popular TV program, its a drag racing reality show with "negotiations" and old fashion way with a flagman (no elctronic Christmas tree).

In some ways it goes back to the roots of drag racing, with a mixture of street racing thrown in for good measure. Most of the participants use "nitrous" as the negotiator for the various runs.

The reason its called Pinks - in the good ole day of drag / street racing the ultimate bet was the car and the ownership of the car was know as the "pink slip" when you race for Pinks you lose the race, you lose the car.

The stakes and the emotions increase on each run.

Its very simple racing, done in a safe controlled area (a drag strip), you run what you bring, and you negotiate with you opponent or competition the old fashioned way - lenghts of cars at the start.

Heads Up - they start even.
On the Motor - just motors
Motor and Bottle - motor with nitrous (this is where the fun begins)
Lenghts - a car length.

A Starter - also called the flagman to start the race
Observers - people at the end of the quarter mile to see who won.

No timing equipement - on the premise that on a street race there would not be any timing equipment.

Its also known as match racing or bracket racing - any 2 cars can race with a lenght or time advantage for the slower car.

Take a look at Dragtimes

In North America up to an 11.5 second run by NHRA rules you can do it with a stock vehicle, faster that 11.5 seconds - Roll Bars - Helmets - additional safety equipment.

For road courses - what people do here, they rent a track and each particiapnts pays a fee to run his car on the track.

Thanks for the input AGR.

Your right, the website needs more refining which will take time and also make the time for other fun stuff I mentioned before.

Pinks is a very good television show. I've watched it. It's a formula best suited for their program.

It takes time to organize a sanctioned event with the goal for a National Chinese Series. With your patience and enthusiasm I have received so far will payoff with exciting racing for the competitors and spectators throughout China!

Thank you and keep you comments coming.

I just wanted to pass a message to everyone that our AMA's Co-Founder has been asked by FRD Asia Formula Renault to work as the Chief Scrutineer for their event at Sepang. They are racing in combination with other series in the Asia Festival of Speed.

I know he's pretty excited about working the event and said he'll get me a hat!

I'll post more information on our website and pictures as they become available.
