PUMA announced two more events that will be held during the Red Cube campaign, where participants stand to win PUMA merchandise and cash vouchers.

“PUMA is excited to be holding the PUMA Motorsport Red Cube Fashion Runway, where we will be crowning the best Malaysian PUMA Motorsport fashion designer, as well as the PUMA Motorsport Simulator, which will crown the next top virtual racing driver,” Yap said.

To add some glamour into the world of racing, PUMA has organised the PUMA Motorsport Fashion Runway competition, where teams made up of college students will compete to design the best possible outfits utilising PUMA products and adhering to the theme of ‘motorsports’. The finals of the competition will be held live at the Pavilion Red Cube on March 15, where a panel of judges will crown the best designers as champions and award them with RM3,000 worth of Puma cash vouchers.

“This is going to be an interesting search as we are looking forward to see budding designers coming up with sassy, fun and or glitzy designs using the Puma Ferrari collection,” said Yap, who will be among the judges for the finals.

Meanwhile, the PUMA Motorsport Simulator will see participants, who will receive a RM20 PUMA voucher simply for taking part, competing to set the best lap times during the qualification stages from 8 – 22 March. The top 10 participants will qualify for the grand finals on 25th March and stand to win RM 1,500 worth of PUMA merchandises. More information can be obtained at
