2012 International Rally of Queensland
THE most powerful rally team in the Asia Pacific region has confirmed it will return to contest the International Rally of Queensland (IROQ) in 2012 and will bring a two-time world champion driver from Sweden to help win the Sunshine Coast event for the first time.
The factory-backed Proton Motorsports team from Malaysia announced it will enter Scotsman Alister McRae and Per-Gunnar (P-G) Andersson from Sweden in the FIA Asia Pacific Rally Championship, which will include their only Australian appearance at IROQ on 25-27 May.
Headquartered at beachside Caloundra and covering the Sunshine Coast and Gympie-Cooloola tourist regions, Australia’s only annual international rally will host the third rounds of the 2012 FIA Asia Pacific Rally Championship and Bosch Australian Rally Championship.
