08 Jun. THE ODYSSEY OF PIONEERS CONTINUES IN ASIA: THE FIRST 100% ELECTRIC GT CAR TO CROSS CHINA
For the first time, a 100% electric GT car is about to cross the People's Republic of China. TAG Heuer's Tesla Roadster started yesterday its journey throughout the second largest country by land area in the world. On June 8, it made several appearances in Beijing, the multi-facetted capital of this buzzing country.
As a new ambassador of the brand, young Chinese GP2 racing driver and aspiring F1 driver Ho-Pin Tung was proud to tour the city with this fireball of an electric car. Ho-Pin was enthousiastic to present TAG Heuer's Tesla Roadster to the Chinese passerbys. Ho-Pin posed in TAG Heuer fashion in front of the iconic landmarks of the former imperial city.
During this TAG Heuer and Tesla cosmopolitan tour, all aspects of the capital were highlighted: the modern and busy Central Business District, the Beijing National Stadium built especially for the 2008 Olympic Games, as well as the Ming City Wall dating back into the early 15th Century.
Linking history to technology, TAG Heuer's Tesla Roadster will next stop along the Great Wall of China, on its way to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of QuFu, before heading to Shanghai.
Congratulations to the China team and good luck to Ho-Pin Tung on his upcoming races!
