SINGAPORE: Some 30 hours after it started, over 300 contestants have dropped out of the running to win S$80,000 car in MediaCorp Subaru Challenge.
As at 9pm on Sunday, just 76 were left standing.
Spirits were still high on Sunday afternoon at Ngee Ann City Civic Plaza, despite temperatures hitting over 30 degrees Celsius.
Contestants have to keep their hands on a car for as long as possible.
The last hand "standing" wins the top prize.
This contest also has participants from 10 countries battling it out.
Of them, Vietnam is the country other than Singapore which had the most number still in the running at 9pm on Sunday — with 8 participants.
And of the 76 left, 49 are Singaporeans.
Four breaks are given in one competition day — at 1am, 7am, 1pm and 7pm.
Participants can choose to use the five—minute breaks to eat, drink, get a massage, or answer the call of nature.
Just for Sunday, they were also given a bonus break at 4pm because of the heat.
