Motor enthusiast Hon Chan of Richmond, B.C. is passionate about keeping his car clean from the inside out. To prove it, he posed alongside his favourite ride, a 2010 Infiniti G37x, with the hood up to show off his clean engine and entered the photo into the Shell V-Power “Fuel My Passion” Contest.
“The way I see it, an engine and gasoline are a perfect partnership,” explains Chan. “Fuelling up with high-quality fuel contributes to a smooth ride with great power!”
That photo earned Chan the most votes in the online contest and the Grand Prize of Shell V-Power Premium Fuel for five years.
Friends and family describe Chan as a ‘total road trip junkie.’ Three years ago, Chan and his family drove for 23 days from Western British Columbia to the Eastern most point in Nova Scotia all the way to the Southern tip of Miami. And where will this road trip enthusiast go with his Grand Prize winnings? Chan plans to fulfill his dream of completing the tour of North America by travelling to the Northern tip of Alaska with his family. In the meantime, he’ll be using every opportunity he has to get behind the wheel with friends to make lasting memories on the road.
From April 13 to June 22, 2011 website visitors voted for Chan’s photo as the grand prize winner of five years of free Shell V-Power Premium Fuel, valued at $15,101. The second prize winner of one year’s worth of free Shell V-Power Premium Fuel, valued at $3,020, was randomly selected from all qualified entrants and went to Milaine Labelle, from Gatineau QC.

“For the second year in a row, the Shell V-Power “Fuel My Passion” Contest has been fuelled by customers who are passionate about their vehicle and Shell V-Power premium fuels,” said Diana Hamadeh, Shell Canada Marketing Communications Manager. “This year was even bigger than last with tens of thousands of Canadians flooding our contest website to participate, vote and share the entry photos through Facebook and other social media networks.”
