Racing at high speeds, with little margin for error, tests even the most experienced drivers. It goes without saying that you will do everything you can to keep your car on the track or stage, but scrapes and crashes are not uncommon.
Reis can provide you with a policy which covers you in the event of a racing, testing or rally accident. We know that drivers are exceptionally skilled and are masters at avoiding obstacles – this is reflected in the cost of the cover.
The easiest way to find out if we can provide cover for your rally car is to speak to a member of our team. They will explain what is required for it to be deemed ‘fit for the purpose of rallying’ i.e., what safety features it needs such a roll cage.
On Event insurance only covers your vehicle in the event of an incident. It will not cover any liability to other participants, to any third parties or passengers, or any third party property damage.
This insurance covers your vehicle against any accident or fire damage caused by a direct result of an incident, either on the track or at an event. Fire Cover can also be extended to fire any cause
This insurance comes as an add-on to Accidental and fire damage cover above. As the name suggests, it insures your vehicle’s engine and transmission against accident or fire caused by a direct result of an on track or event incident.
Total loss by fire cover can be taken as standalone cover or as a top up to the covers listed above.
You’re as precious as your car. That’s why it’s also important to take out personal accident cover, too. Reis can arrange bespoke permanent or temporary disability benefit cover should you suffer an injury in pursuit of your sport or hobby.
Track day insurance is ideal for drivers who occasionally take their car to a circuit to drive it at high speeds – but there’s not much in the way of real competition on a track day. In fact, there are rules in place to ensure that drivers don’t endanger who they’re sharing the track with.
So, if you’re going to compete in any event, be it a sprint, hill climb or other type of stage rally, you may wish to take specialist cover for your vehicle to reimburse you in the event of an incident
You might want to pair your rally car insurance policy with dedicated personal accident insurance. Personal accident cover insures you against injuries or fatalities while you’re competing.
When you’re taking part in a motorsport activity – but particularly rallying – there’s always the danger that you could do yourself some damage. Most racing drivers accept this risk in exchange for being able to pursue their passion.
Following a serious accident, you may need medical treatment and time off work – personal accident cover can help you recoup those costs, so you can focus fully on your recovery.
Personal accident insurance can also help cover repatriation costs to get you back to the UK if you have an accident abroad.
