Watch the World Cup live in South Africa, courtesy of Castrol. What are guys passionate about? Besides cars (which is why you’re a regular reader of this blog!) it will have to be ahem, girls and football, in no particular order. That’s my personal list, but I’m pretty sure I speak for the majority of guys out there!

Football fans will know that the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ is just a few months away, and we can’t wait for it to kick off! It will be a month of late nights in front of the TV for most of us footie fans, but two lucky persons will get to watch the final live in South Africa! This is made possible by Castrol, official sponsor for the 2010 FIFA World Cup™.

The Castrol Football Mania contest, which runs from Jan 1 to March 31, offers 2 premium hospitality packages worth approximately RM55,000 each to experience the World Cup final. This includes a 7D/5N trip with flight, accommodation and of course, tickets to the finals. To fit in the crowd, you also get an Adidas FIFA World Cup™ jersey!

Winners even get to savor the host country’s culture – the package includes exclusive experiences such as the Castrol Camp; a unique safari experience, and Castrol Performance Lab; where one gets to see how Castrol brings out the best in footballing performance via the Analysis, Technology and Innovative (ATI) approach*. To be in the running, purchase Castrol’s premium passenger car lubricants (including selected Castrol GTX ranges, Castrol Magnatec and Castrol EDGE/EDGE Sport) to receive 2, 4 or 8 chances (game credits) to participate. Get the unique POP code from the pack and SMS it to 36300.

You will then receive a series of 3 questions which have to be answered correctly in the shortest possible time. Naturally, more correct answers equates to a higher chance to win something. There are a whopping 198 other prizes to be won besides the top two packages–Sony Bravia LCD TVs, Sony DVD Home Theatre Systems, travel packages, Adidas jerseys, shopping vouchers and Castrol FIFA World Cup™ merchandise are among the great gifts waiting to be claimed!

Castrol top engine oil contest packs can be purchased from participating Castrol dealers and Castrol Auto Service workshops. Castrol Auto Service is a 1-stop auto servicing centre focused in providing value and transparency to its customers. It has been around since 2002 and has now built a network of 158 outlets across Peninsular Malaysia, and recently in Sabah & Sarawak.
