Daf 33 in Zandvoort, the Netherlands

Dear Visitors,

At month’s end I will return to the Netherlands after 15 great years in China. I will stop updating CarNewsChina.com, this is my very last article. I started this website back in 2010, and it has been a fantastic time. I met many fine people, traveled all over the country, and was doing what I loved most.

It has been a long journey. Starting with just a few visitors in the beginning, growing fast to become the largest English-language website for news about the Chinese car market. We have been quoted, copied, and interviewed. We have been on T.V., in newspapers, and in magazines.

Some of you have been with this website from the early days, giving me much needed advice and support. Thank you. And another big thank you to all our visitors, for reading what we wrote.

This however is not a total goodbye. I will continue with ChinaCarHistory.com and CoolCarsInChina.com. These sites don’t depend on daily news and don’t grab 500% of my time, so I can update ‘m from down at the beach back home in Holland.

The website will remain as it is. I will not delete anything. If there is anyone seriously interested in continuing this website, please let me know, and I will tell you all about it.

Groeten,

Tycho
