Fong drove car no. 50.[2] in New Zealand's Toyota Racing Series and became the first Chinese driver to the series. He was supposed to race the three-round International Trophy that contested at tracks in Timaru International Motor Raceway, Invercargill's Teretonga Park and Taupo Motorsport Park.[3] However, the result shows that he only finished his first two races in Timaru and Invercargill.[4]

Fong competed in the 2010 British Formula 3 for Sino Vision Racing and finished 16th overall. He then competed in the Macau Grand Prix. He could only qualify 30th and last.[5] He finished 23rd in the qualifying race,[6] then 21st in the main race.[7]

He is the first Hong Kong driver to finish in the top 10 of the Macau F3 Grand Prix since Marchy Lee finished 7th in 2002.[8]

2012 Audi R8 LMS Cup, British Formula 3 & Indy LightsEdit

On 29 April, Fong took victory in round 2 of the Audi R8 LMS Cup at the Shanghai International Circuit in just his second ever sportscar race, also setting the fastest lap of the race, beating Alex Yoong and Marchy Lee.[9] Fong scored his 2nd Audi R8 LMS Cup victory following a dramatic last-lap coming together between then-race leaders Marchy Lee and Alex Yoong at the Zhuhai International Circuit.[10]

On 15 June, Fong announced he will split his Audi R8 LMS Cup programme to join forces with CF Racing for the Brands Hatch, Spa-Francorchamps and Snetterton rounds of the British F3 series, he will drive a National Class-spec Dallara.[11] On 24 June, at round 14 of the British Formula 3 International Series at Brands Hatch, Fong completed a hat-trick of National class victories for the CF Racing team, leading the class throughout.[12]

Fong also made one start in the Firestone Indy Lights series for Brooks Associates Racing on the Streets of Baltimore where he finished eighth.[13]
