Radical Rally track day terms & conditions
Acknowledgement of Risk
Motorsport is dangerous and can involve injury or death. Despite Radical Rally Ltd and our Partners taking all reasonable precautions, accidents can happen. By attending a track day, you acknowledge this and confirm that you are aware of the nature of the activity and attend at the venue at your own risk.
Radical Rally may refuse access to, and eject from, it’s venues any persons who are acting against the interests of safety and/or whose behaviour is likely to cause damage, nuisance or injury. Radical Rally may also have to conduct security searches at the venues to ensure the safety of customers and other persons at the relevant event.
Neither Radical Rally nor any other members of the Radical group of companies or their representatives or our Partners are responsible for any loss, damage or injury to persons or property caused or sustained by you as result of attendance at any track day, save for liability for death or personal injury arising from Radical Rally’s negligence or for fraudulent misrepresentation.
All drivers must be over 18 years old, hold one of the following licences and comply with the relevant regulations in order to take part in a track day.
- DVLA road licence – must be a fully unrestricted (not provisional) valid driving licence issued by the DVLA (or the equivalent foreign licensing authority in the driver’s country of residence and be 17 years or above) with the appropriate category clearly indicated.
- MSA National B (or higher) race licence – must be a current MSA National B (or higher) race licence.
All drivers and passengers must wear a suitable, correctly fitting crash helmet (not off road style motorcycle helmets) and have their legs covered at all times whilst on circuit. In the case of open top/soft top vehicles, drivers must wear full face helmets and also have arms covered at all times.
A suitable helmet is one that complies with the MSA approved helmet standards list. At the time of writing this is;
- BS 6658 Type A/FR
- FIA 8860-2004
- SFI Foundation 31.1A, 31.2A
- SNELL SA2005
The vehicle you intend to use must conform to MOT minimum standards for road use (in the case of road cars), or MSA current safety and silencing regulations. It must be in good condition both mechanically and bodily and suitable for its intended use on the track. All cars must have working seat belts/harness regardless of age and fit their towing eye in the front. Open wheels/single seater chassis are not permitted or vehicles exceeding 1.85m high. Cars using slick tyres must have an MSA/FIM approved roll cage. It is your duty to ensure that the vehicle remains in this condition for the duration of the activity, in the interests of your safety and the safety of others at the circuit.
The vehicle you intend to use must conform to the noise regulations for the circuit you will be attending. Contact us for specific details.
If Radical Rally or the Track Officials are of the opinion that any vehicle does not comply with the applicable noise restrictions, the relevant vehicle will be prevented from participating in the remainder of the event unless and until the noise emissions are addressed to bring them within the applicable limit.
Accident Damage and Insurance
Radical Rally do not require you to have insurance cover in place on its track days. However, whilst track day accidents are rare, by using your car on track you do so at your own risk. It is entirely your choice as to whether you procure insurance to cover damage to your vehicle. It is unlikely that your normal car insurance policy will cover you for a track day, but you should check with your insurer. If you explain that the track day is non-competitive, they may extend your cover for an additional charge. Alternatively there are specialist insurance companies who provide track day insurance.
On the day
On arrival you must produce your valid UK driving licence (photo card or old paper licence) or its overseas equivalent. Please note that photocopies cannot be accepted.
A full safety briefing will take place prior to any track activity. Please ensure you attend this briefing. Should you arrive too late, please report to a Radical Rally organiser or the Control Tower Supervisor, who will be based in the Control Tower, where arrangements will be made for you to be individually briefed.
Only one passenger may be carried in the vehicle at any one time. All fitted safety devices must be able to perform within their manufacturers guidelines i.e. weight and height of passenger must not interfere or prevent such safe operation within the manufacturers design parameters.
On Track and in the Pit Lane
- Seat belts or harnesses must be worn at all times on the venue.
- Participants must not act or drive recklessly, dangerously or in an intimidating fashion, whether on track or otherwise. If in Radical Rally’s opinion you are acting dangerously, recklessly or in an intimidating fashion you may be removed from further participation in the track day and/or ejected from the venue, at Radical Rally’s discretion.
- No participant shall consume or be under the influence of alcohol at any time during the track day.
- If you are using a garage, please ensure you adhere to all the terms and conditions displayed therein. Including 20l fuel stored ‘inside’ the garage.
- No participant shall be under the influence of drugs or medication (prescribed or otherwise) or have any pre-existing medical condition that will adversely affect his or her performance during the track day.
- No pregnant drivers will be permitted to participate, whether as a driver or passenger, in any track day.
- No timekeeping or pace making of any sort is allowed on the track day.
- Open top cars will only be permitted when fitted with a full MSA/FIA approved roll safety device, or other road homologated roll over safety device. Road homologated vehicles which do not have the above by virtue of their manufactured date, but which are still in standard road homologated specification are also permitted.
- Participants must listen to all briefings and safety instructions throughout the track day, including flags, signals or warnings from marshals or any other representative of Radical Rally. The decisions of Radical Rally or our track day Partners are final.
- No paddock bikes or other forms of unlicensed motorised transport are to be used on the venue at any time.

Photography and Production of Coverage
Other than taking still photographs for personal, non-commercial and non-promotional use, no drivers, passengers or their guests are permitted to produce or broadcast any audio, visual (still and/or moving) and/or audio-visual coverage of the venue or any activity at the venue in any media without obtaining Radical Rally’s prior written consent.
Radical Rally shall be entitled to charge a reasonable fee for the production of such coverage.
Where Radical Rally provides its consent to the production of coverage (a) any and all on-board video equipment carried in or on vehicles must be safely and securely installed in accordance with any applicable governing body regulations; and (b) if the person making the request is a journalist, photographer and/or cameraman, such person must complete a media accreditation form supplied by Radical Rally accompanied by a letter or other written communication from the journalist’s, photographer’s or cameraman’s relevant publication or company.
