Subaru Palm Challenge 2016 Returns to Malaysia for the 8th Time

Back for the 8th year, Motor Image Malaysia – the exclusive distributor of Subaru vehicles in Malaysia – announced their annual event, Subaru Palm Challenge 2016 – Malaysia Face-Off which will take place on Saturday, 13 August 2016 at Piazza, The Curve, Mutiara Damansara.

The event will see 80 participants battle it out for the top 10 spots to be eligible for the regional grand finale at the MediaCorp Subaru Car Challenge 2016 – The Asian Face-Off on 5-8 November 2016. This will be a test of mental and physical endurance for each participant as they have to keep their palm on a Subaru vehicle for the longest time possible with only a 10-minute break every 6 hours to grab a quick bite or visit the washroom.

As easy as that sounds, participants will have to partake in a series of tough challenges as part of the elimination process. The challenges will be introduced to the participants at sporadic timings throughout the day to keep the participants on their toes at all time.

While the 80 participants are selected via online registration, shoppers at The Curve can also join the fun with the Mini Palm Challenge offered by Subaru to win attractive prizes the following day.
