Friday, 23 April 2010

With one week to go, the Engen Xtreme Team is feeling confident about the much-anticipated Engen National Race Day taking place at Aldo Scribante circuit in Port Elizabeth on Saturday 01 May, 2010.

Getting everyone into gear for this year' Engen National Race Day, Engen will be hosting a promotion at the William Moffet service station on Thursday 29 April, 2010 where visitors can grab the opportunity to meet the Engen Xtreme Team drivers and see their cars close up. Motoring enthusiasts can also have their pictures taken in the Engen Xtreme Audi and VW or with their favourite Engen Xtreme driver. Engen Synthetic Lubricants will also generously give away mini lubricant promotional bottles to lucky visitors at this fun-filled promotion.

Engen also aims to further enhance visitors to the Xtreme Xperience Tent at this year's Engen National Race Day, with a variety of events that promise to be fun for everyone. Engen Xtreme activities include driver meet and greet signing sessions and Nintendo Wii games where racing fans who are gaming enthusiasts will get a chance to compete on a virtual racing circuit. A live DJ performance will set the atmosphere for a fun-filled afternoon with the latest tunes and promotional give-aways.

One of the most popular attractions in the Xtreme Xperience tent is always the F1 Simulator and this year, motor fans can again look forward to testing their driving skills. Having proven itself time and time again to be a major hit among the kids, but even more popular among dads, the new interactive version, F1 Simulator will keep both young and old aspiring race drivers captivated, allowing them to get into this mean machine and put their driving skills to the test. Volkswagen will further fuel motor enthusiasts' passion by showing off their new Polo range including the newly-launched, Polo Vivo.

On top of all these exciting activities, Engen will also be running a SMS competition in the week leading up to the big race day, with the grand prize being a family weekend away for four to Kuzuko Lodge; two hours outside of Port Elizabeth.
