Proton’s Madeira disappointment UNTESTED changes to the shock absorbers used on the Proton Satria Neo Super 2000 car of Guy Wilks has been blamed for Wilks’ apparent lacklustre performance at the IRC championship round in Madeira. Team director Chris Mellors explained “we had made some changes to the set-up of the dampers, but these just did not work and we had no chance during the rally of changing the specification. Guy had to put up with constant understeering on his car, which on an event like Madeira is exactly not what you need. There will be time to solve this problem before we go to Barum Rally.” Guy finished 11th overall on an event in which local drivers proved to be much more competitive than expected, and when very few top drivers retired. Karamjit comes back VETERAN Karamjit Singh, FIA’s inaugural Production Car World Champion and three times Asia Pacific champion, returns to international competition on his home Malaysia Rally this weekend. The long-time works Proton driver, 47, will compete this event, and two remaining Asia Cup events, at the wheel of a Proton Satria Neo S2000. This 1 event will be the fifth round of the FIA’s Asia Pacific series, and the second round in the mini Asia Cup series. It will be based at Johor Bahru in the south of Malaysia on the border with Singapore. Favourite is Australian Cody Crocker, winner of this event for the last three years and current APRC series leader, whose Motor Image team is based in Singapore. Crocker and Subaru team-mate Emma Gilmour will again face the MRF Mitsubishi team drivers Katsu Taguchi and Gaurav Gill. After the distressing accident the previous weekend, when Gilmour’s co-driver Rhianon Smyth suffered leg injuries on the Rally South Australia, shea will be co-driven on the event by Claire Mole.
