Haima M6 CTCC : Shanghai Motor Show 2015
Haima M6 CTCC : Overview
The show is also Shanghai racing cars. Chinese motorsport is well, thank you. In 2015, the big news Tourism Championship (CTCC) is the return of Haima.
Haima was present with his family (a Mazda 323 rebadgée) in the second championship in 2004. A first for a manufacturer of “pure”. At that time, there was talk of CCC. Then the league became CTCC, 1600 (in which there is Haima) and 2000 were separated. Finally, in 1600 it became “production”. The family has not changed much: the blue 5 door became a 4 yellow doors, especially, has become real racing car. Haima has always been one of the main organizers of the CTCC. Price of success: its best drivers (Sun Zheng, Xie Xinzhe) were poached. In 2013, the yellow team won the constructors ‘title’ one, and did not give more information.
Suffice it to say that in China, the return of Haima makes noise. Get out of the family room for the new Haima M6 (which is just a stretched version.) The series of Haima M6 has a 1.5l turbo 165ch. Suddenly, the version CTCC can switch to the premier class, Blockbuster (for 1600 or 2000 turbo Atmo.)
The category is dominated by arch-ChangAn-Ford and SAIC-VW. Other (SAIC-Honda and Chevrolet) numbers only. Haima for the podium. To achieve this, it will enter four cars for four brave riders. Chen Xu is the only “historical” Haima. He suddenly discover Blockbuster. Zhang did Zhiqang 3 seasons Blockbuster with SAIC-Chevrolet, but mostly raced in Formula Abarth and Carrera Cup Asia. Hongli Ye has no experience “door speakers.” However, he published two seasons testing among FR 2.0 (Protyre and SPLA). Finally, Jiang Tenyi will be the quartet “old”. CTCC Champion in 2010 and runner-AFR in 2003, spent with Ford and SAIC-VW.
