China’s first world championship motorcycle racing team
Round one: Zongshen taking two championships
The race lasted for only three days. The first day (May 1) was only for administrative check. However, the second day was full of events, including practice, two rounds of qualification and the first round of race. Running four times a day can really give a hard time for both the team and the racers. If you encountered any accident, you could not even have time to fix the bike. The third day was again very easy, including only the warm-up exercise and the second round of the race.
The first round of the Nanjing race began around 3:45 pm. He Zhifeng hesitated a bit at the beginning, giving his leading position to his teammate Liu Junmei. But the two were riding extremely close, quickly leaving behind other contestants. At the last corner of the first lap, He reseized his first place from his partner and rival. After finishing the first lap, the two leading racers from Zongshen have gained a 5 seconds advantage over following contestants. As the race went on, He also left Liu behind a bit. To everyone's surprise, the one riding to the third was the 14-year-old young racer Luo Junjie, keeping almost 5 seconds ahead from the 4th player, XGJAO' Zeng Jianhang. If everything went as expected, Zongshen could possibly have a clear sweep again in the first round. However when it came to the sixth lap, a racer fell on the circuit. For safety concern, the organizer terminated the game immediately. According to the rules, the race should continue if 75% of total distance hasn't been finished and the total distance was 15 laps. Given the finished distance was less than required, the race restarted after a short circuit clean-up and medical aid for the injured. This time, the starting position was determined by the position when the race was ended. The start over did not affect He Zhifeng and Liu Junmei at all, but gave Luo Junjie a higher starting position at No. 3. When the race began, He Zhifeng took the lead and never gave it away again, not even to Liu Junmei. Before long, he crossed the finishing line, winning himself the first champion in 2015. After a 10 year departure from mainland circuits, Liu Junmei's performance was valorous and stable enough to win her the second place. The team champion was also taken by Zongshen easily.
