Cycle & Carriage Bintang Berhad together with Petronas Dagangan Berhad organised a very special ‘Balik Kampung’ themed drive with 200 Mercedes-Benz owners around Selangor. The customers were also given the opportunity to test out Petronas’ latest PRIMAX 95 with Pro-Drive fuel.
Themed “Balik Kampung Like Never Before”, the event was flagged off at Cycle & Carriage Bintang’s Mercedes-Benz City Store @ TREC. Guests in a range of Mercedes-Benz cars put the Petronas PRIMAX 95 with Pro-Drive to the test as they travelled to nine different pit-stops covering 120km across Selangor for a drive hunt.
According to Mr. Wilfrid Foo, Cycle & Carriage CEO, “Malaysia is a vibrant country where diversity is celebrated all year round. The common underlying theme of the various cultural festivities celebrated is travelling back home and celebrating with our loved ones; in other words, to balik kampung.”
“The upcoming Ramadan month and Hari Raya celebration carries the same theme, as we travel back to our hometowns in the spirit of togetherness. We are thrilled to be a part of today’s adventure as a trusted partner of Petronas to bring to you an exhilarating experience you will not forget.”
Participants of the event thoroughly enjoyed all the planned activities surrounding the ‘balik kampung’ drive experience where all of them had a fun time playing games that were the craze of the golden era like the Tapak Gajah (walking using coconuts as foot wear), Batu Seremban (playing with five stones) and Baling Selipar (bowling with slippers).
