Win for yourself or win with a team!
The Mediacorp Subaru Car Challenge returns for its 16th year as Asia’s largest and toughest endurance Challenge on 28 – 31 October 2017.
A Subaru and $5000 at stake
For the first time ever, this year’s Challenge will offer an additional prize of S$5,000 to the winning corporate or school team of 10, with the longest combined time across each individual team member.
A joint initiative between Motor Image Enterprises and Mediacorp, the Challenge will bring together 320 local participants and 80 regional participants from Cambodia, China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Philippines, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.
How hard is the race gonna get?
The hopefuls will battle fatigue, sleep deprivation and extreme weather conditions in the Subaru arena at Ngee Ann City’s Civic Plaza, from 1pm on Saturday 28 October 2017, in the hope of winning the Grand Prize: a Subaru XV 2.0i-S, worth S$65,000 without Certificate of Entitlement (COE).
What if you don’t want to join but just watch?
You don’t have to worry because the event is packed with other great attractions.
This year’s on-ground activities include:
- Subaru Public Challenge at the Subaru booth where visitors can win exciting prizes.
- An interactive Halloween carnival where families get to participate and win attractive goodies.
- Cheerleading competition supported by Cheerleading Association (Singapore) happening on-ground.
- Horror-movie screenings nightly throughout the Challenge.
Contestants can register for this year’s Challenge either on-air or online. Radio listeners in Singapore can enter the first qualifying round by calling into the following Mediacorp’s radio stations – 987, GOLD 905, CLASS 95 and YES 933, between 18 September to 20 October 2017, or by registering online at this website.
Corporate and school teams can send in their registration as well. 20 hopefuls will also qualify directly through Motor Image via a range of online initiatives on the “I LOVE SUBARU” and “DUO Rewards” Facebook pages.
What’s the winning moment?
To take home the Grand Prize, contestants need to place their right palms firmly within the surface area of the palm decals and be the last one standing. They will be given a 5-minute break once every six hours throughout the competition.
Last year’s winner was Singaporean Sunawr Ali who took home the Grand Prize of a Subaru XV 1.6i-S with an impressive time of 75 hours and 58 minutes.
