Proton’s win at the Asia Pacific Rally Championship (APRC) 2010

If you haven’t the latest news, Malaysians have the highest number of friends in social networking sites. Finally, we are number 1 in something!

For the past few years, Malaysians have taken length to be top of their game.

For example, Dr. Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor who is Malaysia’s first astronaut capitalized on his fame by having his face appearing as a trade mark.

Then we have our very own handphone made by CSL but unfortunately called BLUEBERRY-I

One of our property developers may also be the first in introducing “ambassadresses” to bring patrons around their newly launched property.

And not forgetting, the owner of Pajero WGM340 who brought new meaning to the word “overboard”.

Recently, Proton brought us additional good news. I’m not talking about Proton Inspira but their recent win at the APRC.

Rejoining international rallying after a five-year break, PROTON’s return to the coveted Asia Pacific Rally Championship (APRC) has paid off handsomely when it emerged second in the Manufacturer’s Championship in its first full season.

A one-two finish at the recently-concluded China Rally last weekend by Alister McRae and Chris Atkinson reaffirmed the Malaysian car manufacturer’s resolve, determination and competitiveness in the global rallying arena as it placed itself between the traditionally-dominant manufacturers Mitsubishi and Subaru.

Surprisingly, Satria Neo S2000 was used to race in APRC. Damn, I should have bought Satria Neo instead! Check out the video from the China rally.

Yet another Malaysia Boleh moment!
