Morgan Cars China held the first ever ‘Test Drive and Time Trial’ at the private Miyun Airstrip outside Beijing on 14th December 2013.
The largest collection of Morgan cars assembled in China to date were on show for potential customers, the media and dealers. A Plus 8, 3 Roadsters and 1 Plus 4 were on show, with a 2 seater and 4 seater 3.7L used for test drives. Reaction to the Morgan’s was positive all round, largely there was surprise that a ‘classic’ looking car could perform so well and be so quick.
The drivers were put through their paces on 2 circuits; one figure of eight for speed and one complex set of turns and reverses for skill. The winning driver was Qiao Gong, Vice President of the China National Automotive Industry International Corporation (CNAICO), who was presented with a Morgan Flying Jacket for a winning time of 1:10:09.
Xu Hai Peng was the fastest lady and was presented with a Morgan ladies shirt.
