I bumped into a group celebrating their hen’s night out at Bath, London a couple of days back. It was a short visit to Bath but I learned a lot about the Roman Baths and the architecture behind Bath.
I had a piece of news flashed to me while I was there. Mind you, I’ve seen Proton cars in London and it never ceases to amaze me what they’ve done.
However, this is not about that. The Proton team went to the Asia Pacific Rally Championship in China and it brought me back to my vacation on the trip before last to Guilin, China.
The Proton Asia Pacific Rally Championship (APRC) win made me feel warm and fuzzy inside. It’s the feeling much like buying gifts for friends – you don’t get anything out of it but knowing that you’re thinking of your friends while on vacation and making them happy makes you happy. You know what I mean?
Of course this is not the rally but it still has a lot of hallmarks of it. I went on one of the old skool rafts and we were navigating out of time (and space) to get back in time before the bus departs.
I can relate to how the Proton team at the China Rally feels like. The Satria Neo S2000 is one of the 24 out of 44 starters that finished the race.
Not only did they complete the course in Longyou city against much more established motorsports teams but they placed second in the race! w00t!
Alister McRae and Chris Atkinson were the drivers behind the China Rally manoeuvring the Satria Neo S2000. Proton has always been the underdog and I’m glad they have the same mentality as I do – to rise above all odds and challenge The Establishment (TM).
I’ve driven the consumer version of the Satria Neo and I’m not surprised that they managed to finish second. Proton also had 4 Gen2s that finished the gruelling 229.19 km rally.
I have to be honest. This is one of the things that makes me proud to say I’m a Malaysian when I’m on vacation. 🙂

u back oredy? u miss the riot in london..
Yup I’m back! Yeah, and there was an Underground strike while I was there too. Lots of lines closed. We should have something like that over here. Strikes.
Don’t be so naive. Those protons are heavily modded with non-local contents to withstand the grueling race. There is nothing to be proud of. Even the drivers are not Malaysians.
Proton is nothing but a shame to the country and this is nothing but a fact.
Well, my take on it is that they still won, it’s all about the brand. 🙂
Im an older man now, Hb, ( like 50+) but I will tell you this, do not, ever, in any country refer to it as a hens night out. a bad idea. even if you think it your self. but particularly in in england. elizebeth, victoria, mary, etc… like maggie thatcher… try to stay out of the student riots… in france also. I am male, and happy to be one. I really dont understand why all these women, the world over, got to act like just because a period of three days, they ow, ow, quit it. quit hitting me…
I’m back in Malaysia! I didn’t coin that term, the girls told me they were on a hen’s night out. 🙂
Nah, I didn’t manage to catch the student riot action but unfortunately caught the Underground strike action (which severely increased my travel time exporing London).
ps proton is nice. good protypes. intercity. but many persons dont comprehend, the us is vast. even nc, where I live, is almost 400 miles from the atlantic ocean to the border of tn. population centers in certain areas, but most people have limited money, despite what you read or hear. 12000 usd is nice, but not for a curiosity. for 6000 usd I can get a good used car. that I dont have to plug in . and even that is kinda hard. for 2000, well, not so good, but I can get to work and buy a nicer one. Politicians forget, when you are trying to feed your family on your stove, you really dont care about the carbon foot print, be it coal, gas, electric, hydro, wind, nuc, wood, or cow dung, for that matter. but proton seems a nice car. really.
Yeah, I’ve seen it just about everywhere I travel. 🙂
There used to be a huge Proton billboard on Elizabeth St in Melbourne when I was doing my uni back then and I saw a Proton Wira parked across my hostel in England. 🙂
Hey tom r, why don’t you get yourself a proton and have a nice feeling about it?
Bro, why all the animosity? 🙂
Dude, I like the banner, that the right red for you. From left to right it’s like nice little Methodist school boy turning into the Prince of Darkness, I like it. Need some heavy metal sound track. ( NOT!, it’s utterly annoying to visit blogs with music during a time when the stock holders are paying for my service…)
Haha! Cheers bro! 🙂
I know what you mean, music in websites were around back in early 90’s so it kinda put me off it.
The real design is upcoming! This is temp. 🙂
woah, that girl’s super mario shirt is cool
Yeah, she used to work in Malaysia too. Come to think of it I’m supposed to visit her…she offered to be my tour guide in China.
I’m Proud To Be Malaysian Too… Hehe.. Cekidaud My Entry To – PROTON SATRIA NEO S2000 IS THE BEST
Awesome mate! 🙂
Wootz.. Congratulations Proton..
the 2nd picha is nice 😉

Exactly. The ‘Snapdragon’ happens to include a poor GPU, which you mentioned the specifics of in your comment. To that end I heavily dislike the idea of calling a phone with one of these SOCs ‘high-end’. My overclocked Droid performs general calculations nearly as well at the same clock speed as a Snapdragon at 1Ghz, but it’s 3D performance beats the Snapdragon easily – and Hummingbird just kills everything else on Android. It’s a shame Microsoft made Snapdragon the only currently supported chip for 7, as it’s going to limit game development in the long run. Shame Focus isn’t rocking a Hummingbird.

The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
