Third Party Bookings

36. If You book a third party event (trackday or test day or race meeting not organised by BookaTrack.com) via the BookaTrack.com website the above terms and conditions apply.

37. BookaTrack.com have no operational control over third party events and any operational concerns should be communicated to the event organiser. BookaTrack.com do not extend the no queues guarantee to third party events.

Track Car Hire

38. When you hire one of our cars you get exclusive use of the car all day (i.e. you will not be sharing it with anybody else). You are guaranteed use of the car for at least 20 minutes out of each hour the circuit is open. Depending on weather, track conditions and driving standards, time in the car is often unrestricted.

39. Accidents: In the event of an accident the excess liability is always with the driver and not the purchaser - all drivers must sign an agreement to this effect. This excess is paid in advance in the form of a credit card authorisation, which will then be destroyed at the end of an incident free day. Please see point 24 above.

40. Instruction: A session of instruction per driver is included in the price. You must add the instruction at the time of booking to ensure availability. We also reserve the right to enforce further chargeable tuition should the standard of driving or level of experience necessitate so.

41. Breakdowns: In the event of any incident that effectively makes THE CAR unusable, NO refund will be given. Please refer to point 31 above regarding mechanical breadowns due to no driver / hirer error. Where fault is disputed in this instance, the opinion of an agreed independent assessor will be taken as final as to where the fault lies.

42. Engine Damage: All cars are fitted with a tell-tale instrument to measure peak engine revs. If the engine revs exceed 7600rpm a charge is incurred of £100 per 100rpm up to a maximum of the excess stated above. Please note that under normal driving it is not possible to over-rev the car (e.g. you cannot "drive through" the rev limiter). However, it is possible to change into the wrong gear and hence over-rev the engine through using momentum of the car.

43. Gravel Trap Damage: Please refer to point 30 above.

44. Age Restrictions: All drivers must be 17 or over with a full road licence. Please refer to point 24 above for excess conditions. Unfortunately we do not allow junior drivers (regardless of race licences held) in our rental cars.

45. Physical Restrictions: There are no physical restrictions for driving our Caterhams. However, drivers over 6'2" tall or over 16 stone may struggle to drive a standard car as cockpit space is limited. Conversely, drivers under 5'8" are unlikely to be able to drive the larger 'SV' models as the pedalbox is significantly longer.

46. BookaTrack.com reserve the right to refuse access to the cars to any person not deemed safe to drive, or behaving in a competitive or aggressive manner. Additionally, we reserve the right to downgrade your booking to a car of lower-performance if we feel your level of experience is not suitable for the car you have booked. In this instance a pro-rata refund will be issued which reflects the difference in prices paid.
