Proton will be continuing its support of the annual Le Tour De Langkawi bike race by being the official car provider of the event, and for the LTDL 2011, which takes place this January 23 – February 1, it will be sponsoring 160 units of various Proton cars to be used during the event, along with a list of exclusive Proton merchandise.

The cars will be used by the race officers, team managers, organising committee members of the LTDL 2011 and the cavalcade convoy procession throughout the 16th edition of the race. Technical assistance for the sponsored cars will come in the form of 50 Proton personnel comprised of technical experts, drivers for the cavalcade convoy and other relevant representatives.

The company has also been given the honour to present the Blue Jersey to the winners of the ‘Sprint’ category at various designated stages throughout the race. The race is scheduled to run through 10 stages across the country in this year’s edition.
