Karamjit Singh is back in action again, currently vying for the Overall Champion title of the FELDA-AAM Malaysian Rally Championship 2007 (FAMRC) at the oil palm plantations near Kuantan this Saturday and Sunday.
He is currently leading the championship but needs to score for the 4th round this weekend as he did not manage to score any during round 3, unlike the first two rounds where he managed to get first place. The checkered flag for Round 3 was snagged by lead drive Kan Chee Hong and co-driver Bernard Chin for the Perodua M5 Rally team.
Round 4 this weekend will include more than 20 cars including foreign participants, and will span 2 days – 3rd to 4th November 2007 in Kuantan, Pahang.
â€œLast year the drivers found the stages to be demanding with a lot of twists and turns, uphill and downhill roads. It will be even more challenging this year if it continues to rain, as the slippery roads will truly put to the test the skills of the drivers and their cars,” said Clerk of the Course for the Championship, Tengku Shaharin Abu Bakar Almarhum Tengku Suleiman.
