PROTON FOCUSING THEIR EFFORT ON THE NEXT INDONESIAN RALLY STAGE
After a strong but disappointing effort during the fifth stage of the FIA Asia Pacific Rally Championship (APRC), the Proton R3 Malaysian Rally Team is focusing its efforts on the next stage in Indonesia.
The team debuted the Proton Satria Neo S2000 for the first time in Asia at the Malaysian stage of the APRC in Johor recently.
Unfortunately, the team’s driver Karamjit Singh failed to complete the first leg of the rally after a minor incident during the second stage of the day put the car into a ditch.
“Although we’ve faced some difficult challenges in this rally, we’ve still made plenty of progress in terms of development and mileage,” said Karamjit.
“I was starting to drive harder and able to go quicker and see the improvements as the day progressed.”
Karamjit was also the quickest Malaysian driver on the second leg of the day, posting six out of eight fastest stage times amongst the Malaysian Rally Championship contenders.
The sixth stage will be held at Makassar, South Sulawesi, Indonesia from Oct 3 to 4, before moving on to the final stage in China in November.
