Thanks for all the news and pics, guys! So how about the result today? A fan on baidu said that he got 17th place. Is it true?
BTW, I've just watched the Sentiment of china on CCTV4. His performance was the best (of course ). I'm in love with his black outfit now

Kid1412, very sharp pic. did u capture it from tv?
Jimmy got #7 among all chinese racers after saturday's race. not sure what his overall standing is among all 90 racers. He blew out one tire and wasted almost 6 mins changing tires in the middle of the race. so he dropped to #7. unfortunately his teammate Tan's car broke down and had to drop out. jimmy is now the sole racer in his team. keep our fingers crossed that he can climb to top 5 in sunday's race.

Interview on Guangxi TV. jimmy is the center of attention beating the bikini-clad models.

No. I picked it on baidu.
What happened to his car? It's the most expensive car, isn't it? It should have been checked more carefully. Hope everthing will be OK in sunday's race. Good luck to our Jimmy!

jimmy's car hit a rock (must be a very big rock ) during the race and blew a tire. he wated 6 mins changing tires. it's very common in rally races on gravel roads. no one's fault.
The final results are out but it's very confusing. I haven't seen the official news yet but the fans said he got #5 among all chinese racers. don't know his overall standing among all 90 racers.
Okay. got it all figured out. jimmy got 12th place overall (among 87 racers) and 7th among chinese racers in the N4 division (International). He earned 1 pt for his team. The winning team won with 15 pts.
Hanhan is 7th place over and 3rd chinese in the N4 division.

hey guys, I' ve just found this vid, maybe this is his test driving in 2009.06.10
Coco, could u translate some information below it?
Fight for Jimmy..
The fan posted a plea for other fans to be reasonable and not disturb jimmy during a race. it was reported that crazy fans did crazy things in order to get his autographs and pics. jimmy must be really fustrated and ignored the fans. one damaging report even called him 'cold-blooded'.
translation of what the fan's plea.
"Lin Zhi Yin ge ge worked very hard. But i am very happy because when he races he is himself. He is tired but happy. I celebrate for his happiness and his boldness but heart-broken for his hardwork. Please don't make him feel that we don't like his racing. I hope that in the next race everyone will be more reasonable and give him some protection and understanding.
Racing is part of his life. Because of his hardwork and persistence he earned a beautiful report card. But he is just like us. He gets tired and needs to rest. He needs time to do what he likes. With our support he'll do better in the next race."
and now the report of our "cold-blooded" jimmy.
Jimmy Lin ignored young fans
Jimmy Lin was still the center of attention in yesterday’s race. A lot of female fans gathered outside Speedone’s garage since early morning to watch him start the race. After he left the fans stood under the hot sun to wait for his return. At 11:20am he finally came back to the garage and waved to the screaming fans. Compared to the other teams’ empty garages Speedone had 8 to 9 security guards keeping the fans away. Jimmy Lin got out and took a drink. He ignored the screaming fans. Then he put back on his racing suit and cap in order to be interviewed by CCTV. At this time a young mother held up her child who called out “Uncle Xiao Zhi”. No matther how long she called “cold-blooded” Jimmy didn’t even take one look of her.

a report of how crazy the fans were. Read the last paragraph. Jimmy's manager said he's working on a movie.
The China Rally Championship commenced on 2009-06-12 at Nanjing Nanling. Star pro racer Jimmy Lin represents Speedone in the race. The final results won’t come out until later today. But Jimmy’s popularity let other racers realize the effect of the Whirlwind. From the garage to the launching pad, to the short distance race, to the roadside along the rally race, anywhere Jimmy is a mass of people gather around him.
His manager Grace said, “Jimmy did well yesterday. He now ranks #7 among Chinese racers. Jimmy’s attitude towards the race is safety first. He is optimistic and hopes to win the first cup for the team.” But Grace is concerned about his safety. “Rally racing is unlike formula racing where the crowd can be controlled. In a rally race, the crowd is dynamic and hard to control. Wherever Jimmy is he’s surrounded by a large crowd and needs the cops to open up a path for him. The most outrages is during the race crazy fans chase his car seeking his autographs. The team has cars along the way escorting him or he will be bothered and his race will be affected.
Besides racing, Jimmy is also busy with his showbiz career. Because of the preparation for the concert and EP and the races he has turned down all tv series. But Mr Cai Song Lin of 学者影业 is working on a new movie tailored fit for Jimmy.
