    aiyo why no one wants to sponsor? he's quite capable mah.... Eh Petronas, the richest company in malaysia pump in some money to support la. They can afford to support their F1 team which cost many times more.

    the sad thing is he's the best racing driver we got (world champion mah!) and he is now nearing the end of his prime. the sad thing is, in malaysia there is no youngsters that can replace him. didnt see any junior rally teams around here. mostly old timers/regulars. no credible rookies.

    Agreed with Gloker !!!!!

    This is sad case, u know why, coz there's no upcoming "bin" on the way, so memang lar macam tu.

    They sponsored some idiotic football team that return with nothing to the people.

    But Mr Karamjit already proven himselfs to Malaysia and the world that he is the best ! But still, the country dun think he is !!!!

    FYI Proton gave Karam a 7 figure sponsorship last year.

    Please remember a sponsor wants returns from funds given. In World class events the sponsored individual are reqiured to do appearences , endorsments and what-have-you. Sad to say many Malaysians motorsports figures take the money and forget to do their duties. This in turn kills it for newbies trying to get sponsorship.

    Most companies would ask " What's in it for me? I give you money to go racing but what do you give me?"

    Think about it.

    hhmmm, was the money given to Karam or PERT? There is a world of difference. Karam does not control PERT, so the money may not end up where it is supposed to be. But I am just speculating :confused:
