Final round of Ford Focus Challenge

The All-New Ford Focus Challenge – Buy One, Win One which ran in conjunction with the introduction of the 3rd Generation Focus in Malaysia reached its final round this afternoon at the Publika Mall in Kuala Lumpur as 20 finalists competed to win the Grand Prize – a new Focus Titanium. All the participants were already owners of the new Focus (before December 31, 2012) and had been given an opportunity to enter the contest.

After two semi-finals in earlier months, 20 owners won places in the final round which involved various tests: a treasure hunt, sudoku, jigsaw puzzle, awareness of the features of the Focus and doing a slalom on a tandem bicycle (probably inspired by the GRA autocross series as many familiar faces were seen around!).

After challenging episodes under the sun, just 2 points separated the winner and the runner-up, with Leong Keng Wai (partnered by M.Y. Lim) claiming the new Focus Titanium. The runner-up husband and wife team of Halim Shah bin Hamzah and Siti Nordiyana Md Salim won a trip to Spain. In third place was Mohd Faiz bin Mohd Fathil and Mohd Faizal bin Mohd Fathil, who won a trip to Australia. Other prizes includes handphones and shopping vouchers.

“The All-New Ford Focus Challenge – Buy One, Win One is Ford’s way of going further to show our customers how smart and technology-packed the all-new Ford Focus is – and, of course, to have a lot of fun along the way,” said David Westerman, Regional Manager, Asia Pacific, Ford Export & Growth Operations. “We want to get all of our customers excited to be a part of the Ford family.”
