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.[1]

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 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.
