Porsche Asia Pacific kicks off Licence to Thrill Campaign - The Search for the 2017 Porsche Asia Pacific Driver of the Year
The search for the 2017 Porsche Asia Pacific Driver of the Year kicks off with the launch of the region-wide Licence to Thrill campaign. Seeking the region’s best and most skilled drivers, the competition comprises two qualifying rounds which will put knowledge, skill, and passion for the wheel to the test for the chance to win the title and a fully sponsored trip to the Porsche Experience Centre in Los Angeles, USA. Best of all, this contest is open to members of the public from Brunei, Cambodia, French Polynesia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mongolia, New Caledonia, the Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam. Anyone from the countries mentioned can try out! No need to be a Porsche owner folks.
To enter, participants from Asia Pacific region* must first do an online theory test at www.licencetothrill.asia no later than 31st July 2017. The top 30 performers will then qualify for the next round of the competition, which will test skill and driving flair in a series of unusual and exhilarating practical tests held at Sepang International Circuit in Malaysia on 8th September 2017, including painting the number ‘718’ on the track surface while driving the 718 Porsche Boxster with a drilled pot of paint mounted on the car, or doing a gymkhana in reverse with the Porsche Macan.
All contestants will receive their Porsche Licence to Thrill at the awards dinner after the practical test, and the top performer will walk away with the title of 2017 Porsche Asia Pacific Driver of the Year, and the grand prize.
The Porsche Asia Pacific Driver of the Year competition is unlike any other. It takes skill, passion, and flair – invaluable qualities the Porsche brand prides itself on, and it is through this competition we celebrate this passion with our drivers. This could be your chance for something so much bigger!
The Licence to Thrill campaign comes on the back of Porsche’s participation at the recent Le Mans.
