DUBAI (TVBS News) — Taiwanese driver Jimmy Chou, a 17-year-old high school student, won the Gulf Radical Cup, a car endurance race in Dubai last Friday (Feb. 16).

With a racetrack distance of 5.390 kilometers, Chou secured a steady lead with precision timing both in and out of the pit stop, ultimately winning by a margin of over nine seconds from his closest competitor.

 

Chou's interest in racing began at just 10 years old, fueled by his father’s passion for go-karts, which later transitioned into full-sized racing cars.

"I started driving go-karts around fifth grade because of my dad," Chou said. "I found racing fascinating as well, so I kept racing. Then I switched over to large cars and have been competing ever since."

This young driver started to study racing in high school in Taichung and has almost seven years of experience to his name. At the age of 15, Chou represented the Republic of China in the World Motor Sport Council's go-kart category and, this year, plans to step up to higher-class European circuit races.
 

His future aspiration is to become a professional driver. As his career continues to speed ahead, Chou promises to be a luminous symbol of promising young Taiwanese talent.
