Karamjit Singh shows that he might be considered a veteran in the rally scene but he still has what it takes. Piloting a CUSCO-tuned Proton Satria Neo 2WD, he crossed the line to finish first in the overall 2011 APRC 2WD category at this weekend’s Rally of Queensland as well as 1st in the N2 category.

This is one of the fastest and most technical rallies on the APRC calendar. Our main goal was to bring the car home safely and score maximum points. I dedicate this win to all my friends and family who believed in me and assisted me without hesitation”, said Karamjit Singh after the rally.

The closest rival to Karamjit and his co-driver Vivek Ponnusamy was Akira Bamba of Japan, who was 4.5 minutes behind the Flying Sikh. Karamjit placed 9th in the overall race, ahead of some more powerful cars like the Lancer Evo X.

He now has his sights set on the other APRC rounds, with the next race being the Rallye de Nouvelle Caledonie in New Caledonia which will take part from the 17th to 19th June 2011.
