competition insurance


Recommended Posts

I get mine through BCAA, the local Canadian branch of AAA.  Ask for insurance with a motorsports rider.

The price has skyrocketed in the last two years.  It used to be around $250 a year, now it's over $800.

Racing has now been lumped in with the extreme sports idiots.

maybe that's why his drivers take out so many other cars compared to other teams?

Kind of like how the dentist sends you a note telling you the end of year is coming and you have X amount of insurance funds left on the table? Are the drivers told to use up their insurance funds and go hit a few people? Sure seemed like it at Indy!

Medical insurance for me.

No standard medical insurance covers contests of speed.

 

Canadian insurance for a speed contest usually does not have a problem unless it is for a professional series.  Be sure to specify that you are not a professional.

Hmm.  I'll bring that up next year when it's time to renew.

I meant to insure the car in case you ball it up or bend it..as a driver we are responsible for repairs or replacement...can I  get insurance to cover my sessions in a car ..

 

My advice to you is always ask how teams work things and if they want to put a cap on your liability or offer insurance (and increased price) to cover damage under your stint.

 

Our team doesn't have a strict crash policy for example.  We charge enough to cover a few hits here and there and look at the car being written off as a risk of racing.   Other teams might ding you for a wrinkled fender or even scratches.   It's all over the place in this series

 

I'm not aware of any 3rd party companies that will offer insurance for on track racing hits.

Mine's $120 a year but that's because I'm in Alberta.
