OK thanks bro I will ignore them.

Btw, the Satria S2000 isn't exactly a successful car when it was first made. One of the problem is that the engine has a very narrow power range. Handling isn't that fantastic. It took them quite a lot of time and effort to make the car became what it is today.

One of the major problem is lack of power compared to Turbo cars (APRC has Turbo Evos and WRXs). So the car has to rely on better weight distribution and handling to overcome power deficiency.

Was it the same car which won some races (or maybe even the overall) APRC or Jap domestic RC?... read about it end of 2011 smile.gif

Yes, its the same car that won the 2011 APRC. But I guess they have upgraded it and tweak it for Sweden race. Jap Domestic RC is the Satria Neo Cusco version. AFAIK, there are no S2000 used in Jap domestic RC. Below is the link of the Cusco Satria Neo.

The APRC cars are driven by Alister Mcrae and Chris Atkinson. I think them came in 1-2.

Btw, they almost won the Monte Carlo rally if not for an engine fire. The fuel line burst which resulted in a fire. They were 1st having a 7mins lead!

Saying is easier than doing. Go ahead and build one. Make SG proud. Don't be a NATO. See if you can win or not.

You think its easy to build a car to win a race? Do you know how much time and $$$ go into developing and making these rally cars? Not just the Proton but other S2000 cars?

Agree with you. It is not difficult to make a fast car, but a fast car that is build within a set of rules (that everyone need to apply), & win is not easy.

Also, for a country that make Zero autocar, I would either congratute our neighbor, or keep my mouth mum.

Good rally drivers thumbsup.gif .. and the technical team must be quite good (very good in fact) given that the team has a short history in international races smile.gif

Hopefully not. I wouldn't want to see Satria neo becoming a street racer. Since Satria Neos are so rare in SG, it makes me feel proud of my car.

eh, the more the better! come!come!come!

If you look carefully at the leader board, you will notice the Proton is not the highest placed S2000 car in the rally although it won. There are 2 more S2000 cars in front, one Sebastien Ogier in 11th and his team mate in 13th overall driving a Skoda Fabia S2000. Proton won because the two Skodas are not registered for SWRC category.

In fact in round 1, Monte Carlo rally, Sebastien Ogier is running as high as 4th on day one and maintaining 6th overall till he crashed out on Day 2. Drivers makes a big difference in these lower leagues. So Proton's good results might be down to their drivers compared to the other registered teams in the category.

I hope the good results in rallies does well for Proton what WRC did for the Subaru Impreza. I personally noticed Subaru only when I started watching the WRC series. All the while I was oblivious to the WRX's and Evo's around me.

I have seen quite a few nicely done up Satria Neo in JB. It is one of the more chio cars in the Proton lineup.

Think it will still remain quite exclusive here in SG if the Proton dealership continues to sleep.

Ogier and Mikkelsen are competing in WRC, not SWRC.

They are driving Skoda Fabia S2000 cars run by Volkswagen Motorsport this year in preparation for Volkswagen's WRC debut. So they are effectively running under the same regulations as the protons just that they not registered to score points in the category.

Don't talk big and act you know. I did not say me. Car manufacturers can make fast cars. Some work shop can also make your car fast provided you have money. That is why we have people modifying their cars for street racing and also track. wacko.gif

This is no joke. A no name car manufacturer called Proton competed with all the big guns in rally (eg. Ford, Citoren etc....) and won by a margin of 3mins....Whats even more surprising is that Proton came in 12th overall ahead in the event of even some of the far more powerful WRC cars.

This is the first time Proton won in a SWRC competition.

I saw Alistair McRae. The surname is just legendary.
