Experience of a Lifetime in Japan for Shell Advance Contest Winners
For motorcycle owners Mohammad Nizam bin Md Omar and Muhamad Iqbal Hibri bin Azilan, the decision to use Shell Advance motorcycle engine oil have paid off handsomely.
They won the two Grand Prizes in the 2016 Shell Advance Power On contest recently and with it, a trip of a lifetime to Japan. The highlight of the all-expense trip in October was the opportunity to catch the Japan MotoGP™ and the fifth round of this season’s Shell Advance Asia Talent Cup (SAATC) motorcycle racing championship at the famous Twin Ring Motegi racetrack.
Technician Mohammad Nizam, who has been using Shell Advance AX5 motorcycle engine oil for his 125cc Honda Future due to its long lasting performance, was truly elated with his first-ever major contest win and the trip.
“It was my first trip to Japan and the highlight was certainly the visit to the Twin Ring Motegi racetrack. The special VIP pass arranged for us by Shell allowed us to explore nearly all areas of the track during the Japan MotoGP™ race. It was truly an once-in-a-lifetime experience,” he said.
Fellow Grand Prize winner Muhamad Iqbal, a Kawasaki GTR 1400 owner who had just switched to Shell Advance Ultra with PurePlus Technology recently, was all praise for the VIP treatment accorded to the winners throughout the 5-day 4-night trip.
“Thanks to Shell, we were able to experience the excitement of MotoGP™ on another level, which we would never have been able to do on our own. The win aside, I am also very happy with my decision to use Shell Advance Ultra with PurePlus Technology. There is a real difference on my bike as the engine is now super quiet, more powerful and more economical,” said the IT analyst.
The 2016 Shell Power On contest also rewarded Consolation Prize winners with GIVI merchandises that included 10 Monolock boxes, 20 units of full-face helmets, 30 units of rain suits and 50 units of backpacks.
The contest required participants to purchase selected Shell Advance products and apply the stickers that came free with the purchase as creatively as possible on their motorcycles. They had to then snap a photo of the finished work of art, caption and upload it to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #PowerOnShellAdvance.
Shell Lubricants General Manager Leslie Ng – Malaysia and Singapore, said that the attractive premium prizes offered in the 2016 Shell Advance Power On contest were designed to reward loyal and passionate bikers who relied on Shell Advance to get the most out of every ride.
“At Shell, we also reward loyal trade partners who have worked hard to make Shell Advance the preferred motorcycle engine oil in Malaysia. This is why the Japan trip also included 10 workshop owners,” he said.
For owner of Perniagaan Motor Hok Hing in Kepong, Lim Chiew Poh, the luxury of watching the Japan MotoGP™ from the Shell VIP suite was the most memorable experience of his maiden trip to Japan.
“I have been selling Shell Advance since 1988 at a time when it came in a tin can. It is a household brand name and easy to sell. I am glad I managed to be among those selected for this amazing trip,” he said.
Fellow trade winner Koh Wong Hean of Chaw Wei Motor in Kuala Selangor found the technology update during the trip very insightful.
“We now understand why Shell Advance Ultra with PurePlus Technology is truly special as it is the only motorcycle engine oil in the market that is made from natural gas,” he said.
