Mediacorp Subaru Challenge 2015 比耐力赢轿车比赛


Mediacorp Subaru Challenge 2015 kicked off on 31st October at Ngee Ann City Civic Plaza. It has been moved indoors (the first time in 14 years) because of the unpredictable haze conditions.


400 participants - 320 from Singapore and 80 from Cambodia, China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Philippines, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam - are competing for the top prize of a Subaru XV 1.6 I-S (worth up to S$115,000 including COE) with S$5,000 worth of free fuel from Shell.

Regional contestants will also be eligible for extra cash prizes such as S$1,000 for Country Winner and S$5,000 for the last standing regional contestant.

Competitors get a 5-minute break once every six hours at 7 pm, 1 am, 7 am and
1 pm throughout the competition.

Mdm Peng (in her 50s) is competing for the first time in the challenge. She was still going strong at the 26th hour when I took this picture. I wish her all the best.
I met Mdm Peng's son and his girlfriend who came to give their support on the second day. 
Glad to see Elizabeth Chua (6-time participant) and Analiza Mokhtar (9-time participant), who was the 2014 runner-up, taking up the challenge again. These ladies are super tough. :)
The winner of Mediacorp Subaru Challenge 2014 is G Jaishanker who outlasted 399 contestants with a record time of 82 hours and 16 minutes. 

Will the record be broken again this year?


At the 26th hour on the second day, about 40% of the competitors remained.

Wish all the competitors good luck, may the best man or woman win.
