    I personally don't like such gimmick, especially eating the most amount of food within certain time. Can't they think of a healthier competition and anyway this has been going on too long.

    Personally I feel that the Subaru Challenge is one of the stupidest thing you can do. After standing there for so long I am sure all the participants except one will feel really really stupid.

    I am sure Sion can come up with better ideas. Maybe something like this:

    The theory of parallel universes somewhat implies that there is a form of separation between universes, thus it cannot be infinite, looking from outside.

    Ha ha, fortunately we are only doing the Subaru Challenge, imagine if there are challenges by all the manufacturers:
    Toyota, Mazda, Mercedes, Kia, Hyundai, BMW, Jaguar, Ford, Skoda, Audi, Volkswagen, Renault, Peugeot, Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Honda, Mitsubishi, Suzuki, Proton, Perodua, Volvo, Chevrolet, Rolls Royce, Chrysler, etc

    How much time will be wasted? But if there is a Ferrari or Lamborghini challenge, please let me know.

    Wonder why they only limit it to cars? What if they change the cars to something else? Say a human body The winner gets to take him / her home (for a few days at least).

    Anyway, I am el-cheapo and I'll gladly join for even a FF dslr

    Actually I think that such marketing will instead be damaging to the branding of a premium marque. While I really like some of the Subaru models, their marketing is a little strange and seem to be targetting Ah Bengs.

    Why you worry about car marketing? The only thing I worry about car is the performance.

    The reality is a lot of Subaru are heavily modified with after market parts. The profile of someone buying a Subaru is likely to be itchy finger and will change something. After market parts is also a lucrative business.

    To be frank a lot of people are now not taking any interest about the Subaru challenge.

    Even at the event area, not many people looking at the competition.

    Good idea, and also for COE. What is the point of winning a car without COE?

    http://newnation.sg/2013/10/subaru-c...pay-90000-coe/

    The Subaru Challenge 2013 has finally concluded after 75 hours with the winner relieved his ordeal of touching the car is over.However, his relief was turned into shock when he was told he had to pay the $90,000 COE to drive the car home.
    Eyewitnesses said the second place winner who dropped out was initially upset for barely not winning the car, but his sorrow turned to joy when he realised he didn’t even have $90,000 to begin with.
    The second place winner, Nor Mani, said: “No wonder on the first day 394 contestants dropped out already.”
    “They must have gotten the message that the $90,000 COE was not included.”
    I was wrong to say that everyone except one felt stupid after participating, actually every loser except the winner felt joyous. Crazy marketing.

    The news in the link is not true.. it fake news. Except the parts which it doesn't come with COE, most of contests, or almost all contests, the winning car doesn't come with COE anyway. Only the car without all the other tax.

    Just another news to stir big to bring down Singapore.

    According to CNA report, the 1st runner run (aka 2nd place winner) is Sunawr Ali.
    Not Nor Mani (No Money).

    But even if it true.. I will be shocked that he didn't know COE not included.

    Ha ha, thanks.

    The Subaru winner prefers Suzuki!

    All the past winners sold off their Subarus.
