is a safe rally for competitors to push their rally cars to the
max as the dangers of crashing into huge trees and getting bogged
into huge ditches is unlikely if compared to the stages in Johor

4WD class, Chepot leads, Mohd Rafiq and Hj Suhaimi for the win.

Subaru Impreza, Chepot will be going flat out to ensure the 2017
4WD will be his.

different categories is only separated by just 5 points. Mohd
Henzee Hamzah (P10 for 1.6 cars) and rally novice Muhammad Khairul
Nizam (P9 for 1.3) will ensure every ounce of their cars performance
will translate to pure spee. On paper, Khairul Nizam has a better
chance of securing the title as he has won all the rally he entered
to date. This is a duel worth watching.

Azhar and Novice Muhammad Hashrul Jamaluddin. A heavy crash in
Johor dented Azrul pride somewhat while Hashrul drove consistently
all year ensuring maximum points from every round. In the novice
class, 4 points separate the two outstanding drivers of the 2017
season, Muhammad Khairul Nizam and Muhammad Hashrul Jamaluddin.
Both finished all the rallies with the help of reliable cars and
