How to own a car under the palm of one’s hand

HOW far would Cebuano’s go to win a Subaru Impreza 2.0 six-speed manual?

Cebu found out last Saturday, Aug. 10, when 107 men and women showed up for the 2013 Subaru Impreza Challenge Philippine Leg in Cebu at the Ayala Terraces.

The challenge sounds simple: participants need to place their palm on a specified area on the car, without lifting it for as long as they can. However, they only get a five-minute break every six hours, with added physical challenges in between.

The 107 participants – 120 registered but 13 didn’t show up – were distributed among three Imprezas in the middle of the Terraces under the sweltering Cebu heat.
