It looks like our friend Karamjit Singh is not having much luck at Leg One of the Malaysian Rally 2009 today. The course is a tricky one and rain had made it even worse. The Proton Satria Neo Super 2000 ended up in a ditch during SS2 and had to be towed out. “In SS1 we stalled many times and we had to reverse many times so we lost more than a minute. Then in SS2 we were doing much better but unfortunately I clipped a corner too early and ditched the car,” said Karamjit.
The duo of Karamjit and his navigator Jagdev will start again tomorrow. Motor Image Racing Team’s Cody Crocker finished Leg One in 2 hours, 3 minutes and 15 seconds in his Subaru Impreza WRX, while his rival Katsu Taguchi who looked like he was going to finish second place crashed his Evo 9 in a ditch in SS7. He had earlier also damaged his car in SS3. Full results available here.
Look after the jump for shots of both Crocker’s WRX and Taguchi’s Evo 9.
