WIN A HOLIDAY: Trips to Sydney and Osaka among them
IT may be a motor hunt but be prepared to fly to Sydney or Osaka if you are one of the lucky winners as four return tickets will be yours for the taking.
These are among the exciting prizes to be won at the inaugural New Sunday Times Motor Hunt 2012 on July 8.
The tickets are sponsored by AirAsia X Sdn Bhd.
Hunters are set to bring home prizes worth some RM100,000, including lucky draw prizes such as mobile phones, cameras and printers.
Solving riddles and finding hidden treasures can be tiring. But have no worries as Permanis Sandilands Sdn Bhd is sponsoring Revive and Excel 8 drinks for participants to quench their thirst and keep them going. There are also many hotel stays and food and beverage vouchers to be given out.
The hunt will be divided into three categories: regular, beginner and members of the media/sponsors.

There are prizes up to the fifth position in the regular and media/sponsor categories while for beginners, it goes right up to the 30th position.
The half-day hunt will take participants to various areas in the Klang Valley where they have to answer questions and riddles and find hidden treasures.
