MediaCorp Subaru Impreza Challenge 2010 - RT/WW

The MediaCorp Subaru Impreza Challenge is back! One winner will emerge from the 400 contestants to take home the grand prize of a brand new Subaru Impreza 2.5L MT Sedan worth S$98,800.

The contestants include hopeful contenders from Hong Kong, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, China, Indonesia, Vietnam and Taiwan.

66-year old Mrs Vivian Tan is the oldest contestant in this endurance challenge. It's her 3rd attempt. She was alert and chatty when I met her at 1.50 pm on 31st October. She was attempting to last at least 30 hours.

She attracted lots of attention...., at the same time she gained support and encouragement from her fellow contestants and the public. I have only respect and admiration for her, if only I have her courage....... 

 a quick drink and meal....

a quick massage of the tired body ..... 

It is not for the faint-hearted. Contestants have to endure days of no sleep, food, water or shelter. They are only allowed a 5-minute break after every 6 hours. They have to endure fatigue and the unpredictable weather too.

Friends, relatives of the contestants and the public giving their support to the contestants.

Singaporean George Lee set the record of 81 hours 32 minutes for the MediaCorp Subaru Impreza Challenge in 2008.

  11. Tempting huh? But I don't have the endurance. For 5 minutes' break, what will you go for? Food, toilet or resting? A hard choice to make.
