Proton Competition Aim To Complete 100% 2013 Finish Record

1 Mins read

Proton Competition will be aiming for a repeat of its 2012 Bahrain success as the FIA World Championship draws to a close in Sakhir.

A tough year for Proton leaves them in fifth place in the LMGTE Am, only reaching the podium on two occasions – Sao Paolo and Fuji. Despite this, they have maintained their 100% finish record and will look to keep that intact at the season finale.

“We are at the last race of the year and once again will take every effort to get as far forward to the finish.” said Team Boss Christian Ried, who will drive alongside Gianluca Roda and Paolo Ruberti.

The track suits our penalty so we are optimistic about the season finale. It is always a great experience to be racing against the setting desert sun at this track. The mood here for us Central Europeans is always unique.”

Despite the tough conditions, with temperatures expected to be the highest of the year and grip levels unpredictable, the trio will be looking to round out the season with their third podium result of the year, which, if they can replicate their pace from 2012, should be an achievable feat.
