Remember the amazing international rally program of, uh, Proton?

For reasons beyond my understanding, the Maylasian manufacturer of license-built Mitsubishis entered the junior level of the WRC for a while. They didn’t really leave a lasting impression on the series. One year in the late 2000s they were just there and another they just weren’t.

I still have no clue why they entered at all.

What motorsports program do you remember that seemed to make absolutely no sense at the time?
