The event is being organised to commemorate the national car manufacturer’s technology advancements, engineering achievements, innovation and motorsports success.
“We have a specially-constructed mini circuit at the heart of the event site, where the public can catch Proton’s Alister McRae demonstrating the power and performance of the Satria Neo S2000 rally car which won him the 2011 Asia Pacific Rally Championship (APRC) drivers’ and manufacturers’ title,” said Proton group managing director Datuk Seri Syed Zainal Abidin Syed Mohamed Tahir.
“He will be joined by our very own drift king, Tengku Djan Ley from R3 and Faidzil Alang, winner of the Malaysian Super Series Championship last year.”
For motorsports enthusiasts, there will be stunt driving and demonstrations by Lotus Cars Malaysia, and R3 which is Proton’s performance arm.
Also scheduled to make a track appearance is the Lotus F1 car which will be in town for the 14th edition of the Petronas Malaysian Formula One Grand Prix.
Proton will also be organising an autocross and time attack using Proton and Lotus cars with the final race on March 18.
To add to the excitement, bookings for Proton’s highly anticipated new model, codenamed P3-21A will open from Wednesday onwards nationwide, and visitors can catch a glimpse of the car at the Power Of 1 event.
Meanwhile, one out of every 10 visitors to the Power Of 1 will stand to win a list of prizes in the ‘SMS and Win’ contest, including three Proton cars as grand prizes.
Other attractive prizes include complimentary tickets to the Petronas Malaysian Formula One Grand Prix at Sepang Circuit, Proton merchandise and vouchers, and a Lotus track day experience.
