Corvette Racing Contest Offers a 2019 Corvette, Trip to Daytona, and Rental Car

2019 Chevy Corvette Stringray Contest

Visitors to my home are frequently disappointed by one factor -- nothing at all related to the home but as we mentioned in our Nashville Airport Guide, the Corvette Assembly Plant tours in nearby Bowling Green, Kentucky have been suspended. Obviously, the Nissan assembly plant tour is cool for auto enthusiasts but the Corvette assembly plant tour is much cooler. After all, no one built a national museum and test track adjacent to the Nissan plant! Corvette has decided the celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Corvette Racing by offering a trip to the 2019 Rolex 24 race and a 2019 Corvette Stingray. We would be happy with the trip alone, without the $62,490 car.

Discovery Channel Contest Offers a Trip to Hawai'i, Rental Car, and Shark Experience

Shark

We appreciate when contests awarding trips include rental cars as part of the prize; after all, we're a rental car blog and most contests offering trips provide little or no provision for transportation at the destination in the prize. And for some adult in the United States, winning the Swedish Fish Chomped Sweepstakes is going to result in a trip to Oahu, Hawai'i, hotel, rental car, a shark experience, and cash in conjunction with Discovery's Shark Week.

Can You Rent A Tesla? Yes, But You Need To Know Where To Look.

Tesla Rental

Enthralled by Tesla vehicles? Sitting on the waitlist for the Tesla Model 3 like many of our friends? While it's not possible to move up the Model 3 waitlist (without upgrading the Model 3 to make it cost as much as the Model S), there are many options to rent Teslas, whether through affiliates of traditional rental car companies or through start-up firms that specialize in Tesla vehicles. After all, what other vehicle on the highway can be placed into "Launch Mode" and accelerate from 0-60 in under 2.3 seconds!

Silvercar Adds a Third Model to Their Fleet, the Audi A5 Cabriolet

Audi A5 Cabriolet

Our team likes renting from Silvercar for a number of reasons. Now owned by Audi, the company has only rented Audis from the inception of the firm. The first vehicle in the fleet was the Audi A4, which we enjoyed in Las Vegas and tested out all of the included features such as on-board navigation and WiFi. Earlier this year, the company added a second reservable model to the fleet, the Audi Q5 SUV. Silvercar then partnered with Peg Perego to provide child safety seats for free in their Audis (subject to availability). Last month, the company introduced a summer contest where the grand prize was an Audi A5 Cabriolet and our blog noted that it didn't make much sense for Silvercar to give away a car the company did not rent unless the A5 Cabriolet was the third addition to the fleet. Silvercar just confirmed our intuition.

Enterprise, Sir Rosevelt, and Cirque du Soleil Give Away Every Ticket to a Summer Event

Enterprise/Sir Rosevelt Tickets

In what's described as a first-ever implementation of an idea, Enterprise is partnering with Sir Rosevelt and Cirque du Soleil to create an entertainment event. The concept of Share the Code: Hit the Road is that every ticket is given out by other members of the audience through personal networks; an audience-constructed audience. We all know Enterprise (the world's largest rental car company) and Cirque du Soleil (Canadian display of circus arts) but Sir Rosevelt? Sir Rosevelt happens to be Zac Brown's side project (the Zac Brown Band still exists and tours) where he and a few friends combine southern influences with Electronic Dance Music. Yes, Zac Brown has an EDM band and Enterprise is trying to create a unique experience. We would say they succeeded!
