The last Round of the Championship was on late Nov, so everyone was worried about the low temp and also weather forecast was for a wet Weekend, But as always, The weekend weather although is quite cold but the Sun was out most of the time so the Track temp was acceptable providing if tyre warmers and a bit more warming up is observed.
Sat qualifying see local Hero Huang Yan Jia taking the pole followed closely with new comer, Beijing Pengyuan Guizhou Team’s Pro rider : Chen Pengyuan right behind, and a group of 4 other local riders at the 2nd Group dicing out for the lead.
Due to this is the last round of the 2017 Championship, so the circuit has organized a Local Harley Group for a Parade around the Track and also a Car Drift show in noon time.
As chatting with the Harley Group members, Despite Chengdu City restricted the use of Motorcycle in the Metropolitan regions, but we’re told that Chengdu still have over a 1000 Harleys, making Chengdu a popular region for Harley riders as Chengdu has access to great riding routes in Yunnan, Guangxi, Shannxi provinces that has some of the greatest scenic route for bikers.
