We already knew we can consider ourselves lucky in Holland with the superb condition of the asphalt on our roads. Even in heavy rain there are hardly any puddles and a minimal chance of aquaplaning. The roads in China, on the other hand, are a bit rougher. The surface is pretty smooth but the type of asphalt used, create massive puddles which can’t drain easily. If you drive too fast in those circumstances things can go horribly wrong. This was the case for a BMW M3 which starting sliding in the rain and crashed right into the centre guardrail.
