AFTER standing with one hand on a Suzuki for 52 gruelling hours, 33-year-old Kelly Lam won the new car, worth $185,000.


The Snapple/Hit Radio-sponsored competition started on Friday with 49 contestants having to keep one hand on the jeep, with the winner being the last person remaining.


However, after heat and exhaustion had taken their toll, the organisers called a halt to the competition with four competitors remaining. Mr Lam then won a quick-fire skill contest and took home the car.
