Gosh. found out yesterday PTRS racer Li Zhi Cong left the team for its opponent. That's why jimmy decided to race in the AFR in shanghai this weekend. don't know if it's a good thing or not. he hasn't been practicing. so he's just filling in Li's place. PTRS is doing so well this season and now...their primary racer left. Li will be racing against his former teammate and his boss. well, the boy is only 17, moving on to greener pasture.

Jimmy Lin: will release EP in Oct; fight with son over toys
It has been 4 years since Jimmy Lin released an album. His new EP will come out in Oct. On Aug 13 he was in Shanghai for Jet Li’s One Charity Race and the International Renault Formula Race. He couldn’t hold his happiness when talking about the new EP. “The new songs are full of blessings. I want to share my happiness with everyone.” He also told us he fights with his son over toys. “He has music talents. He can ‘play’ the guitar and dance “Nobody”.
Jimmy: “The theme songs for Hunan TV series Single Princess and my new EP will be released in Oct. All the songs have been recorded. We just have to shoot the MV and the cover. I will be very busy for the rest of the year. There will be a very good movie about racing and a TV series. I personally like the story of the idol series. The concert tour will have to wait till next year.”
Can you share with us some of your father tales?
Jimmy: “I spend time with him. It’s like a big kid with a small kid. We fight over toys, listen to music and sing together.
How do you divide your time?
Jimmy: “I have many roles and can divide my time between them fairly well. I am a singer, actor, car racer and added the role of father last year. Of course, I’ve to spend more time with my family now. It’s a sweet burden to me. My attitude has changed now. I used to spend a lot of time in racing and made only a TV series every 3 to 4 years. Since Xiao Xiao Zhi was born I want him to see more exceptional works of his father. I want to set an example for him. I spend all my spare time with him now. He is 11 months old. It’s the cutest time. He can walk and is very active. He has the music gene and can dance to “Nobody”. He can also pretend to play the guitar. Very cute.
How do you divide your time between movies, music, and car racing?
Jimmy: “It has always been half and half. I used to have a race every other month. Now I’ve basically moved to the background and lead the team in different races. Our team won the 2009 Asian Renault Formula grand championship. I won’t compete in as many races but will instead train new racers. It’s better than me racing.
Will you collaborate with Jet Li in a movie?
Jimmy: “If there is the chance I’d love to. But I’ll have to beef up my kung fu first. His movies always need good kung fu background. I should be okay. I made so many ancient series.
Xiao Xiao Zhi will turn 1 in a month. How will you celebrate?
Jimmy: “We’ll have a birthday party for him. He’s the oldest grandson and he’s quite the people person.”
Do you have confidence in the upcoming International Renault Formula race?
Jimmy: “I’ll try my best. The racers are all professionals from all over the world, like Thailand, Japan Europe… Our team hired a champion racer from New Zealand. I’ll try my best. There are so many world class racers. I’ll be satisfied if I could finish in the top 6. Not necessary win but I’ll fight to the last second.
It’s rumored that you are the highest pay Taiwan racer, making mover 10M a year?
Jimmy: “Not that much. On the contrary, I’ve been giving a lot and not taking much in. I should say…I am the best singer and dancer among racers and the best racer among artists.
You had a terrible accident before. How do you feel about it now?
Jimmy: “I hit the lowest point in my life after the accident but I stood back up. When I first started racing my attitude was to win at all cost. I hit a wall at 150 kph, spin around twice before I stopped. Smokes poured out of the race car. I tried to get out but couldn’t stand on my right foot. I jumped out with one foot and the car burst into flames. It was quite scary. At the hospital I found out three bones in my right foot were broken. I was in clutches for 6 months. At the same time, I couldn’t find the direction in my showbiz career. I was just discharged from the army and tried to prove myself to others. I kept asking myself why. I then returned to the race track and concentrated on beating my own record instead of others. I told myself isn’t it the same thing in my showbiz career. I only need to exceed my old record, a step at a time. Then I accepted the role of Xiao Y’er in The Legendary Siblings. I am like Xiao Y’er, always optimistic and no need to act like a hurt prince. After that I found my direction.”
Now that you have a family, will you hold back during races?
“I thought of that too. On the first day I did step on the brake. There are pressures. After a few days of practice I got back to normal. I am quite satisfied with my condition. I am only 1 second slower than the racers who practice daily. Xiao Xiao Zhi supports my racing too. (Just a joke.) He basically supports me, no complaints.
Will you support Xiao Xiao Zhi if he wants to race car in the future?
Jimmy: “I feel that he is interested in racing too. He has a push car that looks like a race car. He is very happy when he’s in it. He blows the horn and zooms around. Of course I’ll support him. Our racing team has a Go-cart car ready for him when he’s ready to race.

Thank you so much for news and pictures updates.
Love Jimmy and Jiang Xin, Support TAE
Hey, relive. he did say a racing movie this time. and he sounds so positive. so, wait and see. it should happen soon. keep our figures crossed.
racing pics from aug 14, 2010 in shanghai. Still no idea what place he got. Because of the national memorial day for the recent flood in china all the races on sunday were canceled. so they just crammed all the races into saturday afternoon. Jimmy was rushed into the the final. In the preliminary on sat morning he got 10th place out of 19. He had to start at the 19th position because he didn't race in 2010 and has no records. Don't know what place he got in the final. the charity race has been rescheduled to monday but he's not supposed to race in it.
They belong to his fan club so i don't want to steal them. maybe i'll pick a few nice ones and post them here later today.
Congratulations to Jimmy for doing so well on his races! And yes XXZ is very cute, just like his daddy. However, hope his English skills will be better than his daddy, though!
