KUALA LUMPUR, 28 May 2015 – Five hundred lucky motorists will enjoy the ultimate engine rejuvenating experience for their cars at the upcoming two-day “#LoveMyRide” Festival organised by Shell Malaysia Trading Sdn. Bhd. This new, first-of-its-kind, festival for car lovers, featuring the unbeatable combination of Shell Helix Ultra with PurePlus Technology and Shell V-Power, will be held at MATRADE Exhibition and Convention Centre (MECC), Kuala Lumpur, on June 13 and 14, 2015 from 10.00 am till 7.00 pm.
Each lucky car will be selected from applications received online at www.lovemyride.com.my to receive an engine rejuvenation package worth up to RM600 for free. To be selected, all motorists need to do is visit the website; register their personal and car details; and complete a pre-oil change survey. The lucky motorists will then be informed if their car has been selected for the rejuvenating experience.
“We want those who have never tried Shell Helix Ultra with PurePlus Technology to really experience what a motor oil made from natural gas could do for a car engine. Imagine a motor oil so pure that it cleanses your car inside out. Combine that with Shell V-Power’s innovative formula and you are all set for an optimum driving experience,” said Tuan Haji Azman Ismail, Managing Director Shell Malaysia Trading Sdn Bhd
He elaborated, “Shell Malaysia will also attempt to set a record for ‘most number of cars in a lubricant changing event in 12 hours’ with the Malaysia Book of Records. This feat will
involve 100 student mechanics from Despark College and Shell Helix branded workshops; an estimated 6,000 litres of Shell Helix Ultra with PurePlus Technology fully synthetic engine oil; and 15,000 litres of Shell V-Power fuel!”
The exclusive treatment entitles each motorist to receive a complete engine oil change for their cars using Shell Helix Ultra with PurePlus Technology 5W-40 fully synthetic engine oil. This is Shell’s most advanced motor oil and the first ever motor oil made from natural gas. The pure, synthetic base oil from natural gas, delivers the highest levels of cleansing and protection.
For further improved performance, each car will also drive away with a full tank* of Shell V-Power fuel. With a unique double-action formula, Shell V-Power is designed to actively clean the engine and protect vital engine parts.
“This powerful combination of Shell Helix Ultra with PurePlus Technology engine oil and Shell V-Power fuel was developed through a technical partnership with Scuderia Ferrari. Tried and tested on the race track, its benefits are now available for the enjoyment of every day motorists on the road,” explained Tuan Haji Azman.
