MODIFIED HONDA CITY RS 1.0 TURBO 2020
16th August, Kota Tinggi – Saladin Mazlan of the Felda Rally Team won the third Round of the Malaysian Rally Championship 2009 (MRC) here today in 3hr 39min 01sec.
The MRC was run concurrently with the FIA APRC MALAYSIAN RALLY 2009 (MR9).
Saladin started the day in the lead and drove a comfortable race to finish 2min 47sec ahead of Gunaseelan Rajoo of the GSR Pennzoil Racing Team. His Felda team mate Rozali Abdullah finished third in 3hr 47min 58sec. The win meant Saladin took home the trophies for both the 4WD and the P12 categories.
“We were fortunate to get a good lead over Guna yesterday because our rear disc broke in the second last SS today and we had to cruise to the end,” said Saladin. “We have learnt a lot and have improved the car in the last two events, so now the car is very strong. The Pennzoil team had better watch out from now on!” he laughed.
Guna said he tried to catch Saladin in the last few Stages but the gap was too wide. “We pushed harder towards the end but our focus was really to ensure we finished the rally and score points for the team,” he said.
The competitors completed sixteen Special Stages over 227.70kms in the oil-palm plantations of Kota Tinggi.
