"Proton Wira Goes International!" Malaysian Adventurer Drives Proton Wira From Malaysia To Tibet, Crossing 11 Countries in Epic Journey


A local man, Fauwaz Zamzam, has been driving a Proton Wira, a Malaysian-made car, all the way from Malaysia to Tibet, China, crossing Thailand and Laos over the past 11 days, and his journey is not over yet!



According to reports from "Sin Chew Daily" and "Harian Metro", in conjunction with the "2024 Malacca Tourism Year", the Malacca State Government, in collaboration with Aimpro Samudra Resources, organized a "Malaysia-Mecca Friendship Journey" activity, with a total of 20 people from various backgrounds forming a convoy to travel by road to the holy city of Mecca, and Fauwaz is one of the participants.


The convoy consists of various modes of transportation, including four motorcycles and six cars, one of which is the first Malaysian-made motorcycle, Modenas Kriss 110, and another is the Proton Wira LHD Sedan driven by Fauwaz Zamzam.



The convoy departed on March 23 and arrived in Tibet, China on April 2. In addition to Malaysia, Thailand, and Laos, they will next traverse China, heading to Nepal, India, Pakistan, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, and Saudi Arabia, with plans to arrive in Mecca on April 27. The entire journey will cover over 15,000 kilometres, crossing 11 countries, making it extremely challenging.
