Be a Race Car Driver

How would you like to have the experience of being a race car driver? Well, guess what? Now you might have the perfect opportunity to do just that and you have come to the right place to read all about it.

DealDash.com has a brand new auction for shoppers to experience being behind the wheel of a super race car on a track in Thornburg, Virginia. If you do not win this auction, you could BIN (Buy-It-Now) for $507.00.

Unfortunately, the first auction for this rare opportunity to “put the pedal to the metal” behind the wheel of a supercar and take three laps around a special race track is already up for auction and all new bidders have already been blocked. However, DealDash might hold more auctions like this one, so if you missed it keep your eyes open for another one.

The winner of this auction will start with a 20 to 30 minute classroom session. According to the DealDash description, the professional instructor will “go over racing tips, proper driving position, steering techniques, braking and acceleration with powerful vehicles.” Following the classroom session, you will “be sent down to the pit to be fitted for your helmet and to prepare yourself for the thrill of a lifetime!”

If you feel the need for speed this will be the opportunity for you to feed your craving. The car you will be driving can hit 60 MPH in just three seconds and reach top speeds of 200-plus MPH.

You will take the driver’s seat but your instructor will be in the passenger seat the entire time to “give you real-time feedback and pointers on how to get the most out of both the course and your supercar!”

Once in awhile you want to push the pedal to the metal!

Drivers must be at least 18 years of age and possess a valid driver’s license. It’s not recommended for participants who are more than 6 feet, 3 inches tall or anyone who exceeds 350 pounds. Helmets will be provided. Also included in the cost is the minimum track insurance policy, but participants could upgrade the insurance for an additional fee at the time of booking. “Photos and video of your experience will be available for purchase at the track on the day of your experience.” The winning driver will be able to share this experience with family and friends who could see the action close up, but the maximum “ride along” participants is three persons. Pit passes are available on the day of the event for an additional $10 per person but anyone under age 12 is free.

According to the DealDash description all of the supercars are equipped with a semi-automatic transmission and drive just like your automatic car. However, if you know how to shift and have track experience and want to use the paddle shifters, let your instructor know and he or she will be happy to help you shift.

This auction does not include accommodations and other expenses such as flights to and from the location of the track, but the winner will receive a digital voucher for the experience itself.

For more information about possible changes or delays due to inclement weather, unexpected mechanical issues, COVID-19 safety rules in place or other details, see the complete DealDash description.

Brief History of Auto Racing

Frank Duryea won the first motor-car race held in the United States on Thanksgiving Day in 1895. This mechanic and inventor, along with his brother, designed their own “horseless carriage” for the race.

Enzo Ferrari, a young Italian car mechanic and engineer, is listed as the first race car driver in history. Ferrari’s first car race took place on Oct. 5, 1919, on a hill climb in Parma, Italy.

In the early 20th century, rich petrol heads would race their cars on Ormond Beach in Florida. The first car to break 100 mph in 1905 was a 90hp Napier owned by S.E. Edge. It was driven by Arthur MacDonald, a British man who took it to 104.65 mph over the measured mile.

The world’s fastest cars in the 1970s were:

  • 7 1970 Ferrari 365 GT (2+2): 156 mph…
  • 6 1971 De Tomaso Mangusta: 155 mph…
  • 5 1970 Chrysler Hemi: 155 mph …
  • 4 1971 Chevrolet Corvette ZR2: 152 mph …
  • 3 1970 Dodge Challenger: 146 mph …
  • 2 1971 Plymouth GTX 440: 145 mph …
  • 1 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS LS6: 142 mph

In 1999 the world’s fastest car was the Lamborghini Diablo GT that reached 215 mph. 

According to my search, the new $1.9 million SSC Tuatara hyper car legitimately claimed the title as the fastest car in the world in early 2021 with a verified two-way average speed of 282.9 mph in Florida

If you have a need for speed, keep your eye open for another “ride of a lifetime” auction on DealDash.com.

Take a Helicopter Tour

DealDash.com is coming up with some new and truly unique auctions.

One of the new auctions is a helicopter ride. Have you ever wanted to take a ride on a helicopter? Well, now you could have your first opportunity to do just that.

This auction offers the winner a 25-minute scenic helicopter tour for two to enjoy breathtaking views of key sights while flying above Los Angeles, California.

According to DealDash’s description of this amazing experience, the winner of this auction can take one other person on this helicopter tour with them but other spectators are welcome to come to the airport and take photos from the ground. 

What an amazing way to see the city!

A certified helicopter pilot will point out several landmarks on this customized tour. Some sights you can expect to see (but are subject to change) include:

  • Los Angeles Basin
  • Downtown L.A.
  • Hollywood Hills
  • Hollywood sign
  • Downtown Hollywood
  • Grauman’s Chinese Theater
  • Dolby Theater
  • Hollywood Forever Cemetery
  • Paramount Studios
  • University of Southern California campus

All passengers must have a valid form of identification. Weight restrictions apply. The maximum weight allowed per person is 300 pounds or a total combined weight of 600 pounds for the winner and one guest. Your pilot will provide protective headsets for each passenger. Comfortable clothing and rubber-soled shoes are recommended.

Gratuity for the pilot is not included and the winner of this auction must provide their own transportation to and from the location of the airport where the helicopter rides are to take place. In case of inclement weather, you will reschedule directly with the pilot.

For more detailed information, check the description of this auction on DealDash.

Brief History of Helicopters

According to my research, many inventors and engineers from all over the world built prototypes of helicopters after 1912, many of which were used in the first two world wars.

The first helicopter to attain production status was the Focke-Achgelis Fa 223 Drache (English for Dragon). This helicopter was developed by Germany during World War II. However, production was hampered by the Allied bombing of the factory, so only 20 were built.

Igor Sikorsky is credited with creating the first mass-produced helicopter in the United States.

The VS-300, designed by Igor Sikorsky, first took flight on Sept. 14, 1939 at Stratford, Connecticut. It was built by the Vought-Sikorsky Aircraft Division of the United Aircraft Corporation. This was the world’s first practical helicopter and was the first to incorporate a single main rotor and tail rotor design.

Turbine-engined helicopters can reach around 25,000 feet. But the maximum height at which a helicopter can hover is much lower because of the thin air at greater heights. A high performance helicopter like the Agusta A109E can hover at 10,400 feet.

The first transatlantic helicopter flight took place in 1952, but the first non-stop transatlantic helicopter flight did not take place until 1967.

The Sikorsky X2 now holds the record for the fastest helicopter in the world. The helicopter first set the unofficial record in 2010 when a demonstrator model reached 287 mph but since production has achieved faster speeds

Bottom Line

If you are looking for a unique Christmas gift for someone special in your life, this might be an auction you might want to win – especially if you are already living in or near the Los Angeles area where the helicopter airport is located.

The best part is even if you are not able to win this auction you can still BIN it for only $260.00.

Why DealDash?

Why shop on DealDash.com? That is the question. Why do millions of customers love shopping on this site every day? Let me count the ways:

Get a Bargain 

Where else can we get such high-end, products at bargain prices?  Some products worth thousands of dollars sometimes sell for less than $100 or even pennies. I won several auctions that I could never afford to pay full retail price to own. I also do not know of any other shopping site that gives customers an opportunity to win an auction for a brand new vehicle. What an amazing opportunity!

DealDash Celebrates 10 Years!

Wow! Did you see all the deals on DealDash.com during its fantastic 10-year celebration?

First of all, DealDash offered one of my favorite special features — having the opportunity to win free bids three times faster. Instead of getting 10 seconds per bid on the bidder meter, shoppers earned 30 seconds per bid. However, that was not even the best part.

Like never before, DealDash had some special bid packages for the special week. This time bid packages in the shape of birthday cakes all went up for auction at the same time. I saw so many of them; I didn’t know where to begin, so I just put some bids on every one of them. Later, I went back to add bids to the ones that looked like it had the least amount of competition. That was a good strategy because I ended up winning two of them — one bid pack of 250 bids and one bid pack of 500 bids.

To help more unique users win these auctions, everyone was limited to win no more than one bid pack in each size.

Another thing that made this event even more fun is that I won three new badges without even knowing what I was doing to win them. I later went back to see what I did to win them:

  • DealDash 10 Years Bidding Challenge (Gold) — Place 1000 Bids this weekend to get a discount from your next Bid Pack purchase.
  • DealDash 10 Years Bidding Challenge (Silver) — Place 100 bids this weekend to get 90 Bids back.
  • DealDash 10 Years Bidding Challenge (Bronze) — Place 10 Bids this weekend to get 10 Bids back.

One more badge that I did not yet win is still available:

  • DealDash 10 Years Auction Win Challenge — Win 10 auctions in 10 days (by 3/27) to earn 300 Bids and a small special reward.

This last badge poses a bit of a challenge. I managed to come in as first-runner-up a couple times, but it requires a lot of focus to win 10 auctions in 10 days.

Regardless, I have not had this much fun on DealDash in a long time. I almost felt like a brand new customer again.

What’s New on DealDash

We never know what might be new on DealDash.com.  That is why it is important to check back on a regular basis to make sure we stay up-to-date on any changes that might be made.

New Auctions

If you have not shopped on DealDash for a long time, you might be surprised to see some new auctions that DealDash did not offer in the past.

Some new auctions that DealDash just started offering for the first time over the last several months include:

  • 2018 Chevrolet Cruze Sedan LS – Automatic – Silver Ice Metallic.
  • Vacation packages to various exciting destinations such as Las Vegas, Miami, Florida, and other places in the world
  • Smart 49-inch 1080p Smart LED TV – 2018 Model, plus wall mount kit
  • Microsoft Xbox One X1TB Gaming Console

Doesn’t this sound interesting? The “No New Bidders” after $5 has been lifted for all of the above auctions, so new bidders are still welcome to join in on the fun.

Other New Changes

Along with some of the new auctions DealDash now offers comes another change. Most of the high-dollar auctions are now wide open for anyone to join the fun of bidding at any time. Check to see the auctions where the $5 lockout has been lifted and no longer applies.

On some of the auctions, DealDash also raised the previous $5 lockout to $10 instead. Therefore, new bidders were free to join the auction until the bidding reached $10. That gives more customers a chance to join the auction before getting locked out, so the competition might have been somewhat stronger in those auctions.

Be on the lookout for additional changes that DealDash might put to the test to see how we like it. This shopping site might be getting even more exciting in the near future.

And the good news for you is that this is an auction that the “No Jumper Limit” has been removed, so you don’t have to get your bids in before the auction reaches $5. The other good news for you is that bids are on a SUPER SALE today.

Gear Up for Camping & Hiking with DealDash

DealDash is gearing up for camping season. Are you? For avid campers like me and my family, DealDash is a great place to find everything you need to make camping a wonderful experience over the summer. Now is the time to find, bookmark and set alerts for all the camping gear you might need this summer.

 

Set those alerts!

While tents may not be a daily item offered on DealDash, they do come up for auction so when you find something you like, set those alerts to make sure you are notified by email when they are up for bids. Search for tent, cot tent and pop-up canopy to make sure you’ve got not only a place to sleep, but something to cover the picnic table as well!

 

A camper’s got to eat…

How about a nice camper grill? My son loves his charcoal camper grill I won for him on DealDash. He uses it to grill burgers in summer and takes it with him when he goes ice fishing to make his coffee and breakfast.

 

Stay warm

Need a little more heat at the fireside table? Check out the electric patio table available on DealDash to keep you warm and toasty on those chilly camping nights!

 

Backpacks!

From heavy duty to waterproof, you will find a variety of backpacks on DealDash just perfect for your hiking or camping outing. Each of my kids has a favorite—my daughter’s favorite is the backpack with a stool built in while my son’s favorite is the waterproof bag, which is perfect for trips out on the water—just in case it happens to get wet!

 

Hiking made comfortable

DealDash has a great selection of hiking and all-terrain shoes available. Whether it’s a simple hike or something a little more vertically challenging, these shoes have got the right stuff to keep you comfortable and moving. Check them out!

 

New items you can’t miss!

Have you checked out the Lamzac inflatable seating now available on DealDash? These look so fun and comfortable that you just have to have one to take on your summer outings! There’s also outdoor hanging lanterns to provide just the right amount of light and ambiance when you’re cooking burgers on the grill and s’mores in the fire pit.

 

Camping can be so much fun and a chance to make memories with your loved ones. Be sure to set alerts and bookmarks to all the camping items you’re interested in so you don’t miss a chance to get in on the great deals on DealDash!

 

Happy camping and happy bidding on DealDash!
