Liquid and metal in action
Petronas Energy Philippines, Inc. (PEPI), a wholly owned subsidiary of Petoliam Nasional Berhad (Petronas) introduced their line of petrochemical products at an event held last Saturday at 1 Esplanade, in Pasay. The event titled as 'Petronas - Liquid and Metal in Action' showcased several cars and motorcycles, the launch of the Petronas My Green Card, a film screening of Racing with Legends, as well as a mini-concert.
PEPI was incorporated in 1995 and officially started its business operations in 1997 as bottlers, marketers, and retailers of LPG both for commercial, industrial, automotive and household use. PEPI started offering its complete line of Petronas lubricants to the market in December of 2010.
At the event grounds, several cars and motorcycles that came from Petronas-sponsored events and racing series was put on display like several Mazda Miatas from the Miata Cup, classic race cars from the Philippine DTM Revival series, and some other cars that came from the Manila Sports Car Club Vintage Sports Car Races. A Petronas-sponsored AF3 race car was the star of the show and was displayed at the center of the exhibit floor. Several F1 simulation arcade games were also put up to let visitors have an idea on how it is like to drive an F1 car.
Over dinner, the documentary film Racing with Legends was played on the big screen for everybody to appreciate where and who sparked the interest of today's Filipino race car drivers and enthusiasts alike.
Later that night, PEPI launched the Petronas My Green Card which served as the brand's loyalty program to reward the brand's patron. Cardholders has a list of benefits like the 100 songs you can download from Warner Music; invitation to Petronas events; free tickets to races, movies and concerts; vouchers and discounts from hotels, restaurants and sea travel; etc.
To cap the night off, several artists from Warner Music serenaded the visitors with a mini-concert.
