We have some of 90 cars from Korea wanna rent a race track preferably international known level of track.

I found from race promoter~

The Chinese Federation will this year be charging very big money to allow any International event to race in China.

They propose RMB 700,000 for the ASN fee ONLY per event + 500,00 for the import bond. This is before you rent the circuit and pay for the event costs.
Before renting 3 days race track like Zuhai, why cost so much to compete international race?

Anyone can direct us to find appropriate channel to make this possible?

How about racing on the ice up at Mohe, on the frozen Heilongjiang River at the top of China when the annual event comes up next month?
Just kidding...
But I do hope we get some responses here Poweraxel because outside of
Zhuhai and Shanghai we don't know of many international caliber tracks in China.
It would be great to see a list of the track sites here on CCF.

Try Shanghai Tianma Circuit. It's a small track similar to Tsukuba but with a shorter straight. It's a stop on the Chinese Touring Cars Championship circuiot and the superbike circuit as well as the host of the ADPO (drift challenge).

Thanks for the info~

As I search, found this place where shows all track in the world

I am trying to reach race organizer or local promoter to work with, and I just start contacting one of track event organizer and hope to get some reply back.

We are currently in communication with Shanghai Circuit and one of major race promoter in China.

For part? We have one dealer in China near Hong Kong area.

In time, I am sure it will expand as more Hyundai Genesis Rohen Coupe / Sedan and YF cars sold in China.

You have five OK tracks in China: Shanghai (SIC), Zhuhai, Guangzhou, Chengdu and Beijing Goldenport, plus Shanghai Tianma (not good for racing cars).

If you are looking for a track day only, all those tracks are fine for you. If you are looking for a proper racing event, Shanghai and Zhuhai are definitely the places to go.

I think Korean race promoter gotten help from FIA and sanction body in China to held event this year at SIC during August.

Date have not set, but it will be good to see it.

ask more at FRD SPORTS? Wake up mate! Longtime ago FRD ruled China motorsports. Nowadays they are confined to their Ford factory team in CTCC status.

You've good tracks in Chengdu, Zhaoqing and Beijing (acceptable for a Track Day). Anyway I doubt your friends from Korea can bring their road cars to China to have fun on a racing track. Better keep the cars in Korea and do a trip to Taeback or Yeongam near the port city of Mokpo.

Two Korean cars are going to race at FRD event next month at SIC on Aug. 19, 20, 21st.

I am glad you know both world in detail and assume you already went those tracks in Korea.

Korea lacks sponsorship from car maker, and I think its good sign for Korean teams to expand their experince and may get sponsorship to race in China.

Korean actor Ryu, Si-Won may only won Ferrari Challenge recently at Zuhai and Shanghai despite is club car owner event, it is still good sign.

I only went to SIC once last year and going to try practice day next month with FRD Ferrari 360 at SIC.

I don't know who is major in motorsports now, but I am willing to help FRD to bring up their status anyway possible.

I for one may stay in China and open exotic car maintenance shop in Shanghai. Since I don't have Chinese driver license, I may have to hire someone to drive my car in China even though I like to drive myself.

Porsche Panemara should be good 4 door car to own, but I am not sure I can afford in China with price x 3 compare to USA. Korea is about x 1.5.

Porsche 911 GT2 is my favorite for both street and weekend race, but I check the price in China is about $450,000 usd

That's very enlightened. FRD Ferrari 360 are a piece of junk left in bad state from the previous seasons that FRD tried unsuccessful to overshadow Hong Kong's GT3 Asia Championship. Look, I know what you were going through and I wish you good luck driving that car. Sure they rent you for less than USD3000 a race like they were charging to their jolly good fellows before.

What kind of cars are those two Korean cars are going to race at FRD event next month at SIC on Aug. 19, 20, 21st? FRD is so serious that seems Ferrari China decided to remove Ferrari Challenge China from FRD event with the bless from SIC management.

I am getting the rental car for free.

I don't know what got into you with FRD, but company trying to establishing some market share in every motorsports are common. Some may be success and some may not.

For those cars coming to race at FRD? Just come and see. :)
