Proton to focus on twin 2012 title tilt

Current FIA Super 2000 World Rally Championship leader and defending FIA Asia-Pacific Rally Champion Proton Motorsports has shifted the focus of its programme in an effort to land two major FIA titles in 2012.

Recent SWRC Rally Finland winner and series leader P-G Andersson (Sweden) will contest the remaining SWRC rounds in a Proton Satria-Neo S2000, aiming to add the Super 2000 title to the two FIA Junior World Rally Championship crowns he took in 2004 and 2007. And reigning FIA Asia-Pacific Rally Champion Alister McRae (Great Britain) will spearhead the Malaysian manufacturer’s attack on the final two rounds of the FIA APRC, aiming to become the first Briton to take back-to-back APRC titles.
