For many racecar drivers, a Cup racing series is a good level playing field to develop experience and progress further to higher levels of competition. Leona Chin has been competing in the Renault Clio Cup China series, achieving pretty good results throughout the competition. The most recent of which was Round 7 and 8 at Shanghai, where she managed to clinch second place for both races.
Starting in second position in both races, Leona had to contend with current series leader Kenneth Lim, battling him for first place. Despite managing to get the jump on him in the first race, she had to relinquish her position and managed to hold on to the second spot. Four more rounds remain in the series, and with such close competition it will be a fight all the way to the finale.
