Proton R3 Amprex Takes Pole Position

26 4

Proton R3 Amprex Racing made amends of their disastrous debut in the recent Malaysian round of the Super GT series by taking control of qualifying for the 2005 Merdeka Millennium Endurance (MME) race at Sepang Circuit today

The partnership of Tony Riccirdello, Tengku Djan Ley and Japan’s Genji Hashimoto all tops their respective qualifying sessions with the Australian V-8 driver clocking the fastest time of 2 minutes 13.970 seconds to take pole position in tomorrow’s sixth edition of the MME

After qualifying yesterday, the grid had been reduced from 93 to the 77 cars in line with the race regulations that allowed a maximum of 77 cars for the 12-hour endurance race, which would be flagged off by Transport Minister Datuk Seri Chan Kong Choy at 11am tomorrow.

    Hey bro,

    The Stage 2 cams are out, and have been for a couple of months. I wouldn’t go Stage 3 (race-spec!) unless you plan to go serious racing, but they will be available later.

    Race-spec would mean wild idling and mad power I suppose. I don’t think will be very driveable on the road. Usually has a very tiny powerband right up the power curve.
