Kuala Lumpur, May 23, 2016 – Seven lucky motorcycle enthusiasts have won an all-expense paid 5-day 4-night road trip to Langkawi as winners of the Shell Advance #Advance2Langkawi consumer contest held in December last year.
The seven are Keith Ow, 29, from Penang; Ng Yao Ding, 29, from Ipoh; Zahed Abdul Rahman, 43 and wife, Hamidah Hassan, 43, from Rawang; Koong Wai Hoong, 32, and Shamsul Ridzuan Idris, 42, from Kuala Lumpur; and Miazil Harina Jores, 28, from Johor Bahru.
The Shell Advance contest attracted more than 700 entries. The winners were chosen based on the best road-trip photos that they had uploaded and shared on social media with the hashtag #Advance2Langkawi.
As part of the preparations for the road-trip from May 18 till 22, 2016, Shell Advance provided a complimentary oil change for the winners’ bikes so that they could experience the sustained power and a smoother ride with Shell Advance Ultra with PurePlus Technology. Throughout the almost 1,200km round trip from Kuala Lumpur to Langkawi and back, all the bikes would be fuelled by Shell V-Power.
Shell Lubricants General Manager – Malaysia and Singapore, Leslie Ng, said that the unique consumer contest was another unique initiative by Shell Advance to reach out to Malaysian bikers.
“This exciting road-trip is a fantastic opportunity for motorcycle enthusiasts to experience our technologically superior Shell Advance Ultra motorcycle engine oil featuring Shell’s proprietary PurePlus Technology. It promises to make every ride more enjoyable with no power loss mile after mile, no matter how far or how hard you ride,” he said.
Shell PurePlus Technology is a revolutionary gas-to-liquid (GTL) process that converts natural gas into crystal-clear base oil with virtually none of the impurities found in crude oil. GTL base oil delivers higher levels of cleansing and superior wear and corrosion protection. As a result, the first-and-only-one of-its-kind motorcycle engine oil, Shell Advance Ultra with PurePlus Technology, is able to offer a clean start and deliver more and sustained power every time.
For the winners, the hardest part was waiting for the trip to start.
“I have been waiting impatiently for this trip ever since I was announced as one of the winners. Not only do I get to go on a new adventure with other motorcycle lovers, Shell also provided a free oil change. My bike already feels smoother with more immediate power from the Shell Advance Ultra with PurePlus Technology that I am using for the first time.
It will be a great experience and I can’t wait for the journey to begin,” said French-born Miazil, who has been riding a Victory 8-ball low-seat cruiser for the past one year.
“I am so glad to have won this contest. I did not expect the oil change but my bike feels so much better now that it is running on Shell Advance Ultra with PurePlus Technology. I am looking forward to experiencing the difference in the upcoming epic road-trip!” said Keith, who rides a Kawasaki Versys 650 mid-size touring bike.
For fellow Kawasaki Versys 650 owner Zahed from Rawang, the Shell Advance sponsored road-trip would be special as he would be riding with his wife, Hamidah.
“I would like to thank Shell Malaysia for creating an amazing contest for me to experience the best of Malaysia on two wheels. My wife and are looking forward to this occasion as it has been a while since we went on a long break together. The best part really is that we are going to do it on my own bike that is now lubricated with a one-of-its-kind oil,” he said.
