MRU Motorsports Preparing for the Final Push Towards Glory
MRU Motorsports will put it all on the line come the final round of 2011 Malaysian Rally Championship (MRC) at Jempol, Negeri Sembilan. They trail GSR Pennzoil Racing Team by 17 points with the gravel of rubber estates and palm oil plantations awaits them to battle all out for the championship. With the recent downpour all over Peninsula Malaysia, they can expect ‘hell’ on the treacherous muddy gravel that can really be a game changer towards the end.
MRU’s principal driver Rafiq Udhaya will be gunning for his second staight MRC title this weekend, but lurking behind him will be 11-time winner Karamjit Singh. With a win in the penultimate round, Karamjit now trails Rafiq by a mere 2 points.

Rafiq Udhaya : “I know the conditions are going to be treacherous once it rains. I remember last year we were caught in some very slippery conditions when it started raining. The weather man are predicting rain again this time. So we have to be well prepared. I am excited over the prospect of challenging Karamjit for the title. He is a good driver and it’s obvious that I have to beat him if I want to retain my title.”
