For The Drivers

1. As a car enthusiast I’ve always wanted to drive other cars which I’m interested in and been following for years, but I don’t know anyone who’s willing to let me drive their car. I don’t feel comfortable asking strangers or even my fellow members in the forums to let me drive their cars, even in exhange for money. I also don’t feel comfortable going to the showrooms and ask for a test drive. I wish I could be able to drive that Audi RS4 or Porsche Cayman in exchange for letting others drive my Golf GTI or for some cash in a safe and friendly way.

2. As a potential buyer, I’m in the market to buy a new mid-range GT car. My short list is Mustang GT, Chevy Camaro or a second hand Maserati GranTurismo. Test driving each for a few minutes with the dealer sitting next to me doesn’t seem like enough time to make such a big decision, and the dealer might even uncomfortably pressure me to buy the car when we get back to the showroom. I wish I could try these cars for a few hours, try them on my favorite local road, even do practical things like test if it will fit in my home garage, and I’m even happy to pay a fee for the experience.

3. As a tourist I’m visiting Melbourne for a few days and I’d like to rent a car to drive the Great Ocean Road. I’d love to drive a nice convertible to enhance the experience, no rental company seems to have a nice car suitable for spirited driving, and the sports car rental companies have such a small collection and such high prices. I wish I could have a good choice of small convertible sports cars to choose from.

For Car Owners

1. I’m an owner of a Golf GTI, but I don’t drive it that much and it’s really my weekend car. Would be good if I could make some money to at least cover the insurance, rego and depreciation of the car. I’m willing to let others drive my car as long as I feel safe knowing the drivers details have been checked, full insurance in case of any accident by the driver is taken care of, and there are precautions in place to stop my car being thrashed.

2. I’m an owner of a BMW M3 and I’ve read so many good reviews about the latest C63. I’ve never driven one! I don’t want to pay any cash but I’m more than happy to let other safe drivers drive my car so I can earn some points and redeem them to drive that Red C63.

For Car Owners and the Drivers

1. I’m an owner of a great Porsche GT3, I know a lot of people would like to experience driving my car, they’ve often told me at meetups. I’d love to be able to share the experience of driving my car in a safe and hassle free way, and in return convert that time, into time that I can experience driving cars that I’ve always wanted to experience.
