Liu Caodong Career Summary

He could have been China's brightest rally hope. Debuted on the IRC with 4th place (and 2nd best local driver) behind Lang Xu, who also died shortly after, in the IRC China Rally 2007. Then Caodong went one better with 3rd place on the same IRC event one year later. In 2010 he tried a Ford Focus WRC on the WRC Rally GB and also was not doing so bad here until a mechanical retirement. However on 8th June 2011 he died after a very short, sudden illness. Chinese media blamed his death on alcohol, but it seems to have been a stroke. He was only 26years old.
