law suit

@  mspenc45 : (31 May 2017 - 01:46 PM)

I've read 4000 or 4500RPM for launch, but anything more than your tires can grip and traction control will shut you down anyway!

A guy at work totaled his new Z06 Corvette and his insurance told him this- "Liability arising from the sponsoring or taking part in any organized or agreed-upon racing or speed contest or demonstration in which your insured car has active participation, or in practice or preparation for any such contest."

 

Basically, your regular insurance will not cover you thus need special race insurance and it isn't cheap! Even attending high performance school isn't covered by my insurance company. I feel for my co-worker since he out of about $100K now...

I dont know of any regular auto insurance that will cover track time at a race track. Your correct that there are insures that specialize in this type of

insurance. Have no idea how either !!

How could he not know know that his insurance doesn't cover him racing his car.  I doubt he is clueless -he rolled the dice and lost.

Exactly ...... I would never race my GT350 at Sebring without the additional insurance. This is a track that I know well and have raced alot when I had a dedicated track car

My insurance agent told that even I had an instructor in my car during the HPDE training that they wouldn't insure me or him/her for that matter.  And he mention that possible upgrades to cars can cause them to cancel an policy...

hadnt thought of that ...... I betcha that alot of these modded GT500's sporting HP in the range i did and more ..... if they lost control because of the power and the adjuster could connect the dots ..... you might have a problem with your claim ..... good catch wag !!
