Take A Free Supercar Ride With Uber

Do you want to get driven around Melbourne’s Albert Park Lake in a Ferrari 458, Lamborghini Superleggera or an Aston Martin V12 Vantage S? Uber has you covered.

Teamed up with Dream Drives Melbourne, Uber is handing out the very best kind of free ride - one that involves a supercar. All you need to do is download the Uber app (if you haven’t already) and enter the promo code "UberRACER". Then between 7pm and 10pm on Thursday the 5th of March, request an UberRACER ride through the app.

The only catch is that you need to be within 5km of Albert Park Lake (check the map below) to be able to hitch a supercar ride. Even so, half of Melbourne will probably be spamming Uber with requests at the same time, so keep trying if you don’t get a ride at first.

Uber is no stranger to cool promos – handing out free supercar rides in Sydney last year. Back in February Uber also spent a day delivering kittens all over Australia for you to play with. Uber also announced they are committed to creating 20,000 new jobs in Australia in 2015 alone. If supercars aren't your thing (and you live in New York), then take a look at Gotham Air – called the 'Uber' for Helicopters.

    Albert park lake is still a public road, so they will need to adhere to the speed limit at all times. Kinda defeats the point of getting in a super car if you have to go 50km/h the whole time doesn't it?

      One less person to compete with, have fun in your Moped, I'm gonna catch me a ride in a supercar.

      it's set up at the f1 circuit at the moment... pretty sure uber will have it covered and theyll be able to go a bit faster

        No they won't have it covered. Do you know the Victorian police? They're not fond of uber as it is, there's no way they're going to turn a blind eye to even modest speeding.

        All supercars provided by Dream Drives Melbourne. Albert Park Lake is an open public road, and speed limits will be adhered to at all times.
