HARUN bin Haji Metussin won a trip to the 2018/19 season Formula E race in Hong Kong and a BND3,000 cash voucher after emerging as the grand prize winner of the Boustead Sdn Bhd’s ‘Art of Intelligent Velocity’ Nissan lucky draw promotion.

Harun, who works at the Department of Electrical Services, beat 10 other contestants shortlisted for the grand prize in a final draw at the Atrium of The Mall yesterday.

The 10 finalists were shortlisted out of more than 100 entries, a pool consisting those who purchased a Nissan vehicle from September 1 to December 31, 2018.

Harun bought a Nissan Juke two months ago during the promotion period. The final 10 contestants had to then successfully traverse three rounds of games in their path to winning the grand prize.

In the first game, participants had to shake a pedometer for three minutes and try to get as high a number as possible.

The five participants with the highest number progressed to the next round, while the remaining five were eliminated and received consolation prizes.

For the second game, all five participants were required to select one red packet from a stack of 15 to determine whether they would proceed to the final round or win cash vouchers.

In the final round, the top two participants were each required to choose three cards for their opponent – one of these cards indicated the grand prize.

“It was really unexpected. I am really happy. I don’t really know what to say,” Harun said after receiving the grand prize.

On choosing to purchase the Nissan Juke, he said, “The Juke is really sporty and attractive. I really love the car.”

Zul Fakri bin Ibrahim won the second prize of a BND1,500 cash voucher, while Noor Hayati binti Haji Emran won a BND1,000 voucher for finishing third.

Haji Mohammad Indera Sukeriman bin Haji Sulaiman, meanwhile, took home BND800 after finishing fourth, while fifth-placed Hajah Anita binti Haji Ya’akub won BND500 and five pieces of Nissan merchandise.

Boustead Sdn Bhd Branch Manager James Wong drew the names of the final 10 and presented the prizes.

Nissan is the first Japanese carmaker to enter the 2018/19 Formula E Championship, an auto racing competition that uses only electric-powered cars.
