Chris van der Drift, Shanghai 2017


JRM’s Li Chao and Kiwi Chris van der Drift have cruised to victory in the GT3 class in the China GT Championship. Round 7 was held at the Shanghai International Circuit in China on Saturday.

“A great job by my team mate Li Chao to start and hand the car to me to finish off,” commented van der Drift. “It’s a good good points-hall for the championship.”

Martin Rump of Kings overtook FAW T2M’s Martin Ragginger/Bao Jinlong in the closing moments of the race to take second together with teammate Wang Liang.
