I am Chinese and was born in Beijing, If I can make contributions to the Olympic Games through my own efforts,I am very happy. To be in the birthplace of the Olympics, to participate in such a meaningful event, which I obtained is the honor of my life, since motor sport is not one of the Olympic Games.

Facts have shown that our original decision is correct; Cheng has proved that he is the NO.1 Chinese driver by his efforts, and received wide public recognition. Transfer the Olympic fire is a special mission; I believe that he will really feel the torch in his hands, which is of great significance in his life.
