The Malaysian Rally, known previously as Rally Malaysia and Rally of Malaysia, is a rally racing event held in the state of Johor, at the southern tip of Peninsular Malaysia. The rally is based out of the state capital Johor Bahru.
The rally was first held in the mid-1970s, a legacy of British colonial influence in Malaysia and has been a long running part of the Malaysian Rally Championship and the Asia-Pacific Rally Championship. The long history of rallying in the region has seen Malaysian drivers emerge with Karamjit Singh winning the rally in 2001 before going on to become a three-time Asia-Pacific champion. Malaysian manufacturer Proton Cars has also used the rally to show off its products, both the badge-engineered Proton Pert and is own[clarification needed] design the Proton Satria. The rally has proven to be a happy hunting ground for Australians with both Ross Dunkerton and Cody Crocker winning the rally four years running.
