To add a more dynamic element to the Payments Race from Hong Kong to Singapore, we’re making it much, much more of a competition. We’re doing this by awarding a series of points to the racers, so it’s not just a case of “who can get on a flight to Singapore the fastest.”

 

Challenge One: Win the Race!

Sounds obvious, but we are awarding points to who can get to Singapore the fastest:

1st Place: 50 Points

2nd Place: 40 Points

3rd Place: 30 Points

4th Place: 20 Points

5th Place: 10 Points

 

Challenge Two: As many modes of travel as possible!

Each Racer must travel on as many different modes of transport as possible, being awarded 2 Points for each selfie tweeted out #paymentsrace

Note: The organisers have final say one what should be award a point e.g. an Elephant is very different from a Boeing 747 and would count as different modes of travel, and points will be awarded.  A Gaosu Dongche Passenger train is not different enough from a CRH2 hi speed train, and no points will be awarded.

This challenge is capped at 20 Points per racer

 

Challenge Three: As many views as possible

A bonus 10 Points awarded to the racer with the most number of views of their vlogs. Simple!

 

Challenge Four: As different Bank Branches as possible

Each Racer must tweet out a selfie in front of as many different Bank Branches as possible, being awarded 2 Points for each selfie tweeted out with the bank tagged in #paymentsrace

This challenge is capped at 20 Points per racer

 

Challenge Five: C-Level Support

Get an interview with a CLevel of the top banks on any of the countries visiting, getting them to endorse you and wise you good luck on camera.

Each racer will be awarded an extra 20 Points if they can do this.

If the racers convinces the person to come to the event and the same time the person will be rewarded to be on stage for the session on Wednesday, and awarded an extra 20 Points

 

Challenge Six: The Final Frontier
