    I'm apparently one of the lucky people that managed to actually get to speak to the owner of dreamcar rentals. I phoned last week to inquire about the insurance deposit. Rang once, and he just answered "hello?" uhhhhh is this dream rentals??
    "yes yes"

    Anyhow, at the time he said the 5-7k deposit was not required for the bogie events.
    Couple days later, my wife gets an email from groupon saying they're refunding the purchase as that groupon is no longer avail.

    So sad

    the rumors I heard were something like, Dream Car didn't call bogie before doing the sale. So no price determined and no schedule confirmed. DC just assumed those dates were available at some magical price and they could negotiate with bogie after they got their money from you. no dice.

    Great idea, but I think this was the cart before the horse or something like that.

    Didi Icar dates get cancelled too?

    I also heard something along the lines of Dream Cars was planning on showing up for a "regular track day" without telling Bogie about it's customers...

    Mind you this is just a rumor but would also explain why CMP just shut the door on the whole thing.

    One of the dates they picked was a CMP lapping day, the other were ' private events' and one was a non scheduled day. Just wrong from the start. They need to book marshals/ambulance/towing instructors maybe? Too much liability at stake to just book time and show up. That approach would be fine for a place like shannonville.

    I dont know about the "Great idea" thing. For a customer's point of view maybe .. hence it was sold out in no time.
    But for the organizers it seems to me that this would never be a money-making idea for the price they offered it.

    It was the same scam with ICar.

    Does anybody know if DC Rentals actually have those cars that they advertised? I dont know about legit ...

    Glad that Group-on is at least refunding the money to everyone.

    My guess is they don't own the vehicles. They probably sublet them, so to speak, in the same way that individuals can buy a Mustang and throw them in the pool of CMP Mustang rentals. I believe http://ottawaecr.com does the same thing.
