Watching Roy Qiu race car driving is almost like cosplaying him in the role of hot race car driver. And then it’s even cooler to realize that this isn’t cosplaying at all, it happened in real life and he had a blast. Roy raced in this past weekend’s Formula One race in Zhu Hai, China. He actually came in second, which surprised everyone, but goes to show how serious he is about this more-than-a-hobby of his. His rumored girlfriend Tang Yan posted a cryptic message on her weibo the morning of the race. Get this: the race was held on 3-18, Roy was driving car number 18, and Tang Yan posted her message exactly at 3:18 am saying “Be safe! Good luck!” Awww, cute. Also, Roy in a racer’s uniform? So hot it rendered me speechless. Oh, and just in case folks are wondering why his car has the name “Roy Chiu” on it, Chiu is the Wade-Gilles anglicization while Qiu is in Pinyin. Since Roy is Taiwanese, his last name is spelled Chiu but I’ve chosen to go Pinyin in my blog for consistency purposes.
