HPDE Insurance information- how to read your current policy to see if you're covered...

06 September 2017 - 08:48 AM

Hey guys,

Not sure how many of you are subscribed to Ross Bentley's stuff, but this just came across the wire and thought I'd share here as insured street cars at HPDE are a common discussion topic.




This is a quick message with information that I think could be important to you, if you drive on a race track.
Many drivers I talk with think their regular insurance policy covers them when driving in HPDE/track events. Recently, I was talking with Ryan Staub (who runs Lockton Affinity Motorsports) on my podcast and at the track about insurance, and at one point, I asked if he had any kind of written advice about how to know whether one is covered or not. Well, Ryan put something together, so I thought I'd let you know about it. It's good advice about where to look to find out whether your insurance policy covers you when on track.
Click "A guide to Your Personal Auto Policy" to learn whether you're covered.
That's all. I just wanted to let you know about this resource.
Keep learning and having fun!



Homebrew coolsuit build

Yes, your cooler is goign to leak if you just have it running through the zipper.  I have a early model "real" CoolShirt ice chest in my car, and there's 2 ~3/8" holes drilled through the side as the top for the hoses to run through.  The insulation on the hoses is even compressed slightly going through there, yet I still get about 1/4 of the water sloshing out of the thing on track.  it's usually enough to soak the floorboard over the course of a race.  fun part is when I had it behind me in the 240SX, it soaked the driver side footwell and steamed my feet every time I hit the brakes and the water sloshed forward and hit the hot spot above the exhaust.   90 deg outside and I had a fogged up windshield!

FYI to all.. Simpson Voyager 2 helmet recall...

I just got this via SCCA email blast..  Thought I would pass it on here as someone may have one of these helmets and not have received the notice from their retailer..
