Norwich, Norfolk, United Kingdom, 2006/09/12 - Herts Insurance Consultants (HIC), the company which specialises in insurance for the motoring enthusiast. Not only does it offer Track Day cover but it is giving it away, as a bonus, on HIC’s standard motoring policies.
Track Days are a great way to take your car to its limits on some of the country’s top racing circuits. No speed limits, no traffic lights, no roadworks and up till now probably no insurance cover either! Most insurance companies aren’t keen on giving cover for this sort of activity. In fact, it’s a bit of a no-go area when it comes to insurance – leaving punters high and dry.
Not so Herts Insurance Consultants (HIC), the company which specialises in insurance for the motoring enthusiast. Not only does it offer Track Day cover but it is giving it away for free, as a bonus, on HIC’s standard motoring policies.
“We’re all in favour of Track Days here,” says Andy Morton of HIC. “Most of us go to them ourselves so we know what they’re all about. Nowadays Track Days are organised events run by responsible people who have the driver’s safety at heart and it stands to reason that if you’ve spent a load of money on your car then you don’t want to wreck it if you can help it.”
HIC has taken all this into consideration when sorting out the best way to offer Track Day cover. It couldn’t be simpler, when you organise your car’s policy with HIC just tell them you want to take out the Track Day option and it’s yours – no extra cost. It gives you Accidental Damage cover when you’re on the track at events organised by a recognised body or registered club. If you’re not certain if a particular event fits the criteria, just ring HIC to make sure.
HIC suggests the following checklist before setting out on the track:
· Engine – filters, belts and oil
· Bodywork (for loose trim etc)
HIC is the enthusiast’s car insurer with a passion for motoring that translates into great deals on car insurance. For more information call 08451 290290.
HIC’s Track Day covers the policyholder for accidental damage to the vehicle, subject to a minimum policy excess of £500. The vehicle is NOT covered for racing or time events.
Conditions apply to the Track Day cover. For example, HIC (hertsinsurance.com) will not cover any damage resulting from negligence or if the driver is under the influence of intoxicating drugs or alcohol. In the event of a total loss, should the policyholder wish to retain salvage, the Underwriters will try to comply, subject to relevant legislation and an agreed settlement.
