"There is no problem with competition as a Buddhist as long as you are fair," say the Buddhist. "When you win, you can share your success with all beings, by letting them take joy in your success."

While the Taoist sage wrote; "A wise man knows himself to be more precious than fame - and so - obscure, remains."

Buddhism and Taoist are the two oldest religions in China, so to understand the Chinese perspective on racing and competition in general, it’s imperative to know that this is a nation that has forever been a harmony of paradoxes. The Taoist sage shuns competition, for it nurtures egotism, fosters brutality and justifies humiliation. Yet, as China continues to open up to western influences, such as off-road racing, these values and beliefs too, continue to be redefined.

When long distance cross-country rally racer Zhu Xun recently finished third in the Xi Delong Cup 2010 Chinese Circuit Off-road Championship, one of the three major races held by the Federation of Automobile Sports of in Jinjiang, Fujian Province, he was quoted as saying;

"While participating in races, if you truly enjoy the race itself, you will be happy regardless of what place you come in at."

Xun has also said that these three races are his personal favorites, "as they are the most demanding and comprehensive test of a race driver’s capability."

A total of 79 race drivers from various teams and race clubs across China participated in the Delong Cup 2010. K&N distributor, Carnet Motor, sponsors Zhu Xun, a veteran racer from the Yong Tang Sheng Team. Xun has nearly six years of racing experience. Xun also heads the Race Car Modification aspect for the team. The Young Tang Sheng Team is from Fuzhou, Fujiang Province.

After two rounds of racing, a half dozen drivers remained for the final; Zhu Xun was one of those six. In the fiercely competitive final, Toyota X-Game driver Ou Minsheng came through with the victory

As the head (CTO) of Race Car Modification, Zhu Xun is outspoken about safety and street-racing. He is against all illegal car racing on the roads, "as it not only puts the driver in danger, but also endangers all other drivers on the road."

He says that the primary foundation of all car modifications should always be about safety first. On racecar modification, Zhu Xun shared the following analogy, "just like the shortest wood panel will determine how much water a bucket can hold, racecar modification should be a comprehensive improvement across all parts, instead of a pure propelling power play. The key focus should be on the race car body structure, as well as control mechanisms."
