Terms and Conditions of Use
Prior to all ABRS programs students will be required to sign personal risk & liability waivers, indemnifying ABRS of any injury, loss or damages to their personal equipment incurred during the event.
Allen Berg Racing Schools offers a full spectrum of racing programs that can take you from the sidelines all the way to top level of pro racing. However, as in all forms of motor sports, crash damage responsibility is sometimes a concern.
Students are responsible for accident damage in any of our kart and formula car programs. Formula car programs offer an optional crash damage insurance liability policy can be purchased for $89 / day per driver, reducing student's maximum accident damage exposure to $2000. Karting program programs offer an optional crash damage insurance liability policy can be purchased for $25 / day per driver, reducing student's maximum accident damage exposure to $150. If you have an incident that results in damage to ABRS equipment, you may continue albeit at the discretion of ABRS staff.
Although accidents do occasionally occur, it is extremely rare that a spin or mistake on track will result in any damage. When you sign in the first day of the course, you will be requested to sign a Damage Liability Agreement, complete with your credit card details, in case of accident damage.
