It’s a new record! The winner stood for 82 hours and 16 minutes, amidst sun and rain while hanging on to the Subaru Forrester 2.0i Premium that is worth S$85,000. The winner, Mr. G Jaishanker from Singapore emerged as the winner.

Not only did the 50 year old endured the 82 hours, he showed no signs of exhaustion when he received his prize in the arena. Other winners include Mr. Tan Hong Sheng from Malaysia who took the title Asian Winner, walking away with S$5000 cash with a time of 81 hours and 15 minutes. This is the fourth year Mr. Tan has competed in and he broke his previous record of 73 hours.

In recognition of the regional contestants' efforts, the title of Country Winner and a cash prize of S$1,000 went to the last standing representative from each country. The Thailand team achieved the longest combined standing time (accumulated total time of all 10 representatives) of 488 hours and 13 minutes, and will be going home with title of Country Team Winner along with a cash prize of S$10,000.

You really see the passion they have fighting for a car even enduring long hours and the numerous weather elements to win the coveted grand prize. Not only did the winner break the record from the previous year but four others as well.
