The race course on the 14th is even more difficult than the day before. The roads are narrrower and more slippery. The racers are more conservative and tried to be careful not to affect their standings. Jimmy Lin didn't take any risks and finished as #8 among all chinese racers and earned one point for the team. He said he was happy with his performance. He wasn't as fast as the day before but didn't make any mistales either. He didn't enter the top 6 and win any trophies for the team. But most importantly he is racing against himself and trying to beat his own records. That's the spirit of racing.
Nanjing fansí zeal grew by the day. On the 13rd Jimmy Linís fans got in cars and tried to stop him on the way to the race. During the closing ceremony on the afternoon of the 14th, he was inside his car surrounded by fans for up to 10 mins. Finally reporters and his personal guards helped him break out of the crowd. Unfortunately, his race car broke down in the final moment and he couldnít wave goodbye to the fans from his car.
The Speedone team will move on to 郑州 and the race cars will be shipped to Beijing for the next race. The Beijing race will be on paved roads, which is Jimmy Linís speciality. He also said that heíll go to Beijing ahead of time to train in order to be more familialized with his race car.

Goodluck jimmy. hope u win a cup in the beijing race.
4 video footages (60 mins total) of BTS jimmy at the race. What's it like to have cameras pointing at your face when u eat, rest, work.
i think this is when our 'cold-blooded' jimmy put his suit back on for the CCTV interview and ignored that child.
he cut his finger. he had a bandage on his thumb. he looked tired when he covered his face with a towel and wiped off sweats.

this is when he and his car were cornered and couldn't go to the closing ceremony. He had to hide in a bus for an hr before security came to get him out. Geez! he looks so calm.
