PALMS DOWN ! MediaCorp Subaru Impreza Challenge 2008

400 palms are down on 10 Subarus since 1pm this afternoon Saturday, Nov 08. The MediaCorp Radio Subaru Impreza Challenge is back in town.
A new crazy batch of people and some returners from last years event will spend their weekend and some some days of next week standing around cars holding tight their hands on hot metal or glass with breaks every 6 hours only.
They have to withstand not only physical tortures like sun, rain, tiredness, sore feet and arms, hunger but also psychological ones especially during the nights when most viewers have left and it's getting quiet at the Taka square. The reason for this endurance torture is to win a brand new Subaru Impreza WRX 2.5L Manual worth S$80,000.

Or you win SPC petrol vouchers when you're the fastest in a virtual car race.
This competition is held now the 8ths time and last years winners time was unbelievable, astonishing 77 hours 13sec.
One alteration this year are additional competitors from Hong Kong, Malaysia, Thailand and the Philippines. The next days will show if they can outlast the Singaporeans.

FD, Glenn Ong, Carol from Class 95 and DJ's from Gold 90.5FM and 987 FM are hosting this challenge. Listen to their radio stations and you will get updates live from Ngee Ann City. If you want to check out the situation there click here for the webcam
Supporters and spectators also get chances to win prizes in various games. If you're able to change a car tire in record speed you might walk away with new Continental car tires. More photos: Contestants within the first hour of the challenge still optimistic and fresh.

After one hours already 4 dropped out. 2 of them were from Hong Kong.
