This, together with your Application for Competition On Track Insurance, Confirmation of Cover and any formal amendments, sets out the terms of your policy. You should check all details of your insurance and satisfy yourself that it is entirely in accordance with your understanding and instructions. Anything at variance with this understanding and instruction should be advised to us immediately quoting your unique reference number (e.g. OT123) from the MORIS website.

Aggregate Sum Insured: The sum stated on the Confirmation of Cover is the maximum total sum that can be claimed under this policy. The insurers liability ceases when any number of claims payments or simply one claim exceeds the sum stated.

OUR FEES:

1. Claims Administration Fee: In the event of a claim we charge a fee of £125 per claim. This covers the cost of our disbursements to insurers and loss adjusters. This is only charged upon successful conclusion of your claim and is normally deducted from the claim settlement amount. There is no insurance premium tax to be added to these fees and you are not liable for fees pertaining to loss adjusting services.

2. Changes to your policy:
Notwithstanding any adjustments to your premium (additional premium or return of premium) in the event you need to amend your policy details during the course of the policy period we charge £5.95 for each amendment to cover our administrative costs.

Operative Boundaries: Cover only applies "trackside" and does not extend to any loss or damage occurring in the pit garage, paddock or other similar areas of the circuit.

Recommendation: We strongly urge you to take photographs of the insured vehicle from all four sides BEFORE taking to the track. This can help in the event of a claim.

Market Value

This policy is based upon market value and is NOT an "Agreed Value" policy.

Salvage

In the event a claim is settled as a total loss the insurers retain the rights to salvage.

Claims (Refer also to Claims Procedure below)

In the event of a claim, or in the event of an accident which could give rise to a claim it is warranted that: a) photographs are taken of the damaged car PRIOR to removal from circuit. Photographs should show all damage. b) Notify us online within 48 hours of the accident.

Estimates may be obtained but no repair work is to be undertaken without prior permission from insurers.

Claims Procedure (In respect of vehicle Damage)

(1) Accident Statement:
Insurers require an independent statement from a circuit official confirming the location, date and time of the accident. This form can also be downloaded from our website (see "Notification" below). Insurers will repudiate your claim if you are unable to provide this.

We MUST be notified online within 48 hours of an accident which may give rise to a claim.

This should be done directly on the MORIS website by clicking on 'Claims Notification'. This must be submitted to formally notify us of your claim.

Insurers may repudiate your claim if this initial notification is late.

(2) Loss Adjuster:
Your On Track Insurers may require that the processing of your claim is overseen by an independent third party and may engage the services of a loss adjuster. This is to ensure your claim is treated effectively and fairly if there are areas of discussion.

Correspondence relating to your claim should be sent directly to MORIS unless notified otherwise.

A report will be submitted from the loss adjuster to MORIS for onward transmission to insurers.

Claim payment will come directly from Everitt Boles unless advised otherwise.

(3) Photographs:
PHOTOGRAPHS must be taken at the circuit and PRIOR to any repairs to the car. Photographs should be taken from all four sides of the car regardless of damage. It is your responsibility to prove your loss.

This is a WARRANTY on your policy. The Insurers have absolute right to repudiate a claim if you fail to comply with the above stipulations.

Photographs should be sent directly to MORIS either digitally on line or by post.

Repairs:
No repair work is to be undertaken without prior permission from insurers.

Disposal of Parts:
Damaged parts should NOT be disposed of until you have permission to do so.

Fraud:
Insurers have absolute right to repudiate a claim should it become evident that the claim be false or fraudulent as regards to amount or otherwise.

Optional Extensions (Refer to Confirmation of Cover)

  1. Insurance of Your Excess
    Recommendation
    - Take photographs of the insured vehicle BEFORE taking to the track.

    This is provided on an insurance "Franchise" basis. This works in a similar way to an excess but there is a significant difference.

    The excess stated is the minimum amount of damage which must be attained before insurers become liable. Only when damage exceeds the amount of your policy excess are the insurers liable to pay this amount in full. Where damage remains below the stated excess there is no claim.

    Example: If your excess is £2,000 this is the franchise limit. The damage to the vehicle must be over £2,000 before insurers are liable for the full amount of £2,000. If the damage is under £2,000 you will receive nothing.
  2. Additional Fire Cover
    This provides cover to the vehicles FULL VALUE in the event of a fire following accident. Fire following mechanical breakdown / derangement is not covered.
  3. Engine and Gearbox
    Accidental damage is provided following impact damage to the external side of the engine / gearbox. NOTE: Internal items damaged by over revving or ingestion of dirt are not covered. This is considered to be wear and tear.
