There’s an old saying that goes something like, “if you’re going to race cars, you’re going to crash cars”. Race cars aren’t cheap, and getting into an accident at 100+ miles per hour is not only potentially deadly, but it’s also hard on the wallet.
Hagerty is now launching its first dedicated race car insurance policies in the UK, which will protect drivers and teams while driving on-track, and vehicles in transit.
To offer the products Hagerty has partnered with Gullwing Racing Insurance, which has been offering on-track racing insurance since 1997.
Whether you’re an amateur track-day enthusiast or a professional driver, Hagerty’s On-track policy offers highest levels of cover. Off-track insurance will also be available in order to protect vehicles in transit or storage from damage, fire, or theft.
Policies will be available for both road-registered and competition vehicles, whether driving solo or receiving professional instruction. Both teams and individual drivers will be able to have peace of mind that they are protected in the event of an accident.
In terms of legal liability for death or injury to a third party or their property, insurance policies compensates teams and drivers in the event of an accident. Hagerty has also created a motorsports team at its UK headquarters with its own phone number and email address to offer custom services for client needs.
Mark Roper, Managing Director of Hagerty International, said “Many of our clients enjoy participating in motorsport using classic and collectible vehicles, ranging from club-level trackdays to organised classic racing events such as Goodwood Revival. Hagerty has taken time to find the right partner for our motorsport product and is proud to be working with Gullwing. As a result, we know our clients will enjoy our new range of products, and our specialist team is ready and waiting to discuss their individual needs.”
Hagerty motorsports policies are available in the United Kingdom immediately.
