Switch for XTRA Race, a social media campaign where 3 top local celebrities (Awal Ashaari, Scha Alyahya and Faizal FBI) and 1 celebrity blogger (Hanis Zalikha) were pitted together in a fan-fueled online race. Each racer need to get votes from their fans in order for them to move forward in the race. It sounds pretty interesting and challenging indeed! 

Host of the day

The event started off with brief speech and everyone just could not wait to wait for the result to be announced! Let's see who won the race! :D The most interesting part here was not only the racer get to win prize, but the top fans too!

Well, the excitement did not end there. All 60 top supporters of the Switch XTRA Race could have chance to spend time with their favorite celeb in a cross-country ride! They were invited to audition to join an exciting road trip with their celebrity racers in the Switch for XTRA Road Challenge. Two fans  per race also have been chosen on that day too!



Each team will be sent on a road trip to a location in Malaysia, where they will need to complete a challenge. As the campaign is fan-fueled through social media, these challenges can only be achieved with the help of the public. The journey will be captured on video and posted on Youtube. Each team will have two webisodes each, plus an introduction and a trailer. Sounds exciting!
