Supercar Club Blues
We pride ourselves on being first with the fractional stories that matter. Last month Fractional Life reported the disappointing news about ‘The Segrave Club’ going into administration following the demise of Group 20 and more recently Club Velocita. This was a full ten days before the motoring journalists at Auto Express magazine got a whiff!
Our original story can be found here.
Only a year or so after Segrave marketed themselves as the ‘crème de la crème’ of fractional supercar clubs their unfortunate demise represents a lesson in the importance of carrying out full due diligence and satisfying yourself of the ‘stability’ of any such offering before one parts with their hard-earned. It can be all too easy to be seduced by the possibility of getting behind the wheel of some of the finest metal on offer but don't let your heart rule your head!
Economy aside, a positive and long track record is a telling factor and there are many car clubs advertising on Fractional Life that have this – we know of one that’s been in business in excess of 13 years. Over the next few weeks we will be featuring some of these operators, and delving a little deeper into the financials and how they operate. In the meantime see our listings for classic and supercars.
