Hot Wheels Legends Tour Malaysia Livestream This Thursday
The winner of the first-ever Hot Wheels Legends Tour Malaysia will be announced via livestream on the Hot Wheels Facebook page this coming Thursday (November 12) at 10.30 am.
The livestream will be hosted by Art of Speed Malaysia, with Malaysia being the first country in Asia to be chosen as a host. Now in its third year, the Hot Wheels Legends Tour is a global search for the next fan-made custom car to be made into a Hot Wheels die-cast model.
This year’s tour, which has gone virtual due to the pandemic, started on September 25 and ran until October 15. Malaysia saw a total of 67 entries submitted and out of the number, the judges have selected 12 finalists who will be presented during the livestream.
The final winner will then join other Legends Tour finalists at the Virtual Global Finale in Los Angeles in November for a chance to have their car immortalized as an iconic Hot Wheels die-cast vehicle.
Fans across Malaysia are getting the chance to virtually join the excitement of the 1st Hot Wheels Legends Tour Malaysia presented by Art of Speed. The digital tour will be hosted by Art of Speed Malaysia and the winning Malaysian car will be announced live on November 12th Malaysia 10.30AM GMT +8 / November 11th US 6.30PM PDT which will be streamed on the Hot Wheels Facebook livestream (www.facebook.com/HotWheels). Malaysia is the 1st host in Asia to be selected as host.
Hot Wheels Legends Tour 2019 was an epic tour, which saw more than 110,000+ participants, more than 5,000 entries, 18 finalists and 1 extraordinary winner! This year, the tour has gone virtual and one of the new stops will be in Malaysia in search of a winner for the Hot Wheels Legends Tour, where one lucky custom build will be immortalized as a diecast car and shared with fans across the globe.
