Whether the prize is a holiday, fuel, tickets, phone, signed merchandise, gift card or a year’s supply of Twisties, everyone loves winning a competition.

About 10 years ago I was lucky enough to win a golden ticket for my favourite band The Living End. It allowed me to go to any gigs the band played anywhere in the world that year. Before you get too excited (as I did), the prize didn’t include flights or accommodation – it was just the ticket to the show but I did manage to go to 12 shows that year.

But I haven’t seen any competition prizes generate more of a buzz at tradingpost.com.au than a new car.  Whether it’s a coupe or convertible, people love winning a new set of wheels.

That’s why we’re teaming up with our friends at CarShowroom to give you the chance to win a brand new Ford Focus Sport Hatch valued up to $31,238 driveaway.

The best bit is it’s really simple to enter and you can multiply your chance of winning by ‘liking’ Tradingpost on facebook, following us on twitter or sharing the competition details with your friends.

So whether your car’s costing you more to fix than it’s actually worth or you’ve just got a craving for that new car smell, enter the competition now for your chance to drive away in a new Ford Focus Sport Hatch. Entries close 29 May.
