Castrol Magnatec Instant Protection Campaign Rewards Lucky Winners

Published on October 24th, 2011

Castrol, the world’s leading lubricant specialist, concluded their much acclaimed Castrol Magnatec “Instant Protection” Campaign with a prize giving ceremony at Le Meridien hotel recently. The ceremony was the culmination of a successful fun and interactive two month campaign that brought to life the Instant Protection that Castrol Magnatec offers against problems posed by start up engine wear in an online Facebook contest and roadshows across the country.

The campaign, designed to showcase the importance of Instant Protection, drove home the message that the problem of engine wear, which is caused by friction, happens mostly during start up. It further showcased how Castrol Magnatec is always ready to provide an extra layer of protection with Intelligent Molecules that cling like magnets to vital engine parts at all times, when you need it the most – during warm up.

The top contestants fought their way to the top in an interactive online game contest via Facebook called the Castrol Magnatec Augmented Reality Monster game. This unique approach received overwhelming response with the game being played more than 13,400 times in just 8 weeks! The ecstatic grand prize winner Wong Yew Fung, 31, walked away with a 4D/3N trip to Disneyland Hong Kong while the 2nd prize winner bagged a thrilling 3D/2N holiday to Universal Studios at Resorts World, Sentosa Island.

Grand Prize winner, Wong Yew Fung, 31, said, “Personally, I think this unique campaign took a fun and exciting approach in educating us on the importance of having instant protection against engine start-up wear. The game was innovative and addictive plus it was a good way for Castrol to reward their customers as well. I have been a Castrol Magnatec user for over five years now, and I can safely say that I felt secured knowing that Castrol Magnatec’s Intelligent Molecules are able to protect my car engine at all times so I don’t have to worry about my car engine wearing out before time.”

Mark Ng, Marketing Director, Castrol Malaysia and Singapore “Apart from learning that up to 75% of engine wear happens at start-up and how the Intelligent Molecules in Castrol Magnatec are always ready to protect your car engine 24/7, we also wanted to make sure that our fans and consumers were rewarded for their support throughout this unique campaign. It certainly was extremely exciting as we witnessed the level of interactivity and excitement expressed by the public on Castrol Malaysia Facebook and at our roadshows in major shopping malls across the country. We certainly hope that our consumers are able to discover that learning about engine protection and lubricants can be fun and interesting too. With Castrol Magnatec, you can be sure that your engine is protected from the moment you turn the key. We at Castrol believe that if you take care of your car, it will take care of you.”

The use of Augmented Reality technology was extensively featured in the roadshows through the world’s first giant Augmented Reality Monster, while the Castrol Magnatec Augmented Reality Monster game involved facial recognition technology, giving contestants a truly interactive experience.
