The awards were slated to be presented by Castrol on March 18, 2020 at the ‘Hari Mekanik Malaysia’ awards ceremony.

However, following careful evaluation of the current situation surrounding the global COVID-19 outbreak, and following advice from the Malaysian Ministry of Health and relevant authorities, a decision was made to cancel the event, which was scheduled to be held in Subang Jaya.

Our 20 award winners from the campaign is a reflection of our efforts in appreciating as well as motivating mechanics in the automotive industry. We look forward to creating more avenues focused on celebrating the community in the near future”, said Castrol Malaysia and Singapore Marketing Director, Keow Mei-Shan.
