DOUBLE RACE WINS FOR PROTON IN MSS

Published on October 3rd, 2011

Syafiq Ali and Faidzil Alang race to double race wins in the Malaysian Touring Car Championship at Sepang International Circuit.

Occupying the top two positions on the grid, the PROTON R3 Racing Team dominated to lead the 10 lap race from start to finish.

Pole-sitter Syafiq set a blistering pace in the PROTON Gen2 with team mate Faidzil in close pursuit in the Satria Neo R3. Finishing third in race 1 and 2 was Siah Wy Pyng in another PROTON Satria Neo R3.

Syafiq and Alang also had a day to remember as they both dominated qualifying and finals in the MTC, ensuring a 1-2 front row as they both posted 24:34:990 and 24:39:300 respectively for the final rounds.

“The results are a testament not only to the competitiveness of the Gen2 and Satria Neo on the circuit but underlines PROTON’s commitment to be better,” said Datuk Abdul Razak Dawood, the Head of PROTON Motorsports.

“PROTON has had the distinction of enjoying numerous success in rallying and circuit racing and it is indeed encouraging to see this tradition carrying on today.”
