400 contestants will once again battle it out in Subaru Challenge 2009 and the last man or woman standing will take home the ultimate prize of a Subaru Impreza WRX Sedan 2.5MT worth $81,000 (without COE). The current record of 81 hours and 32 minutes is held by the 2008 winner, George Lee, a Singaporean. Will the winner come from the 320 Singaporeans used to Singapore’s unpredictable weather of sun, rain and more sun or will the car be driven away by the first non-local contestant… stay tuned to find out!
This year’s Subaru Challenge will kick off on Saturday 31 October at Ngee Ann City. Tune in to MediaCorp radio stations Gold 90.5FM, Class 95FM and 987FM for more details on the challenge.
