Last weekend didn’t go as planned. It started off pretty good and we were in a good position to secure our 2nd place in the championship with the Proton Preve R3. Syafiq Ali won the Malaysian Touring Car Championship by Round 4 and all our concentration was set of giving the Preve its maiden win.
From the pic above you will know that it did not turn out as planned. We were pushed off into the wall 10secs after the lights turned green and ended our weekend instantly. I was rushed to the hospital in fear of a neck + back injury and the car was a wreck.
The doctors did their routine checks and I fortunately was in one piece. A sore back and torn muscles from the impact but that was it.
9tro managed to get a photo sequence of the crash. Log on to www.9tro.com to view.
See you next race.
Its the final race of the season for the Malaysian Touring Car Series. I will be back in the Preve this round finalizing setup before we head to the 1000KM race in December. We are happy with the progress made throughout the year. Our cars have pace & reliability. I’m going to push and make this weekend the Proton Preve’s maiden race win for the 2013 season. Lets do this!
We headed to Sepang circuit today for the ignition.my trackday with the BMW M3 to test after having issues with worn subframe bushings. The track was packed throughout the session and we couldn’t get a clean lap but was more than enough to get a feel of the changes made to the rear subframe. Car feels tight n ready to set a blistering pace at the next Zerotohundred TimeToAttack event scheduled in Nov.
Another great weekend for Team Proton R3. I took on the development driver role this year concentrating on chassis setup for both MSS/S1K race cars. We put together a great car last round where the Proton Preve led the race midway only to fall into electrical issues which robbed the team of a win. Knowing we had a good setup on the Preve, i moved on to the Proton Satria Neo as it was suffering from consistency and front end grip. We made small changes with great results improving out right pace and consistency throughout the race last weekend. Team Proton R3 finished 1st & 2nd sealing its 3rd Malaysian Touring Car Championship win with one round to go.
