THE Pro­ton R3 Rally Team dom­i­nated the fi­nal round of the FIA Asia-Pa­cific Rally Cham­pi­onship in China at the week­end, with Scot Alis­ter McRae clinch­ing max­i­mum points and team­mate Chris Atkin­son of the Gold Coast sec­ond of the se­ries run­ners. McRae and Atkin­son were among the pace­set­ters through­out the 15-stage, two-day event de­spite get­ting sev­eral punc­tures. Ja­pan’s Katsu Taguchi won the driv­ers cham­pi­onship. His co-driver, Aus­tralian Chris Mur­phy, fin­ished sec­ond in the points to MRF’s Glenn MacNeall be­cause Mur­phy missed the Malaysian round when he was stuck in the UK by the Ice­land vol­cano in April.
