  • RISK WARNING AND DISCLAIMER
      
    Motorsport Activities are inherently dangerous recreational activities and there is significant risk of injury, disability or death.
    If you do not wish to be exposed to such risks, then you should not participate in the Motorsport Activities.

    Acknowledgement of Risks
    I acknowledge that the risks associated with attending or participating in Motorsport Activities include but are not limited to the risk that I may suffer harm as a result of:

    motor vehicles (or parts of them) colliding with other motor vehicles or persons or property;
    other participants acting dangerously or with lack of skills;
    high levels of noise exposure;
    acts of violence and other harmful acts (whether intentional or inadvertent) committed by persons attending or participating in the event; and
    the failure or unsuitability of facilities (including grand-stands, fences and guard rails) to ensure my safety.
    Exclusion of Liability, Release and Indemnity
    In exchange for being able to attend or participate in the Motorsport Activities, I agree:

    to release Motorsport Australia and the Entities to the extent that any or all of them are providing Recreational Services from all liability for:
    my death;
    any physical or mental injury (including the aggravation, acceleration or recurrence of such an injury);
    the contraction, aggravation or acceleration of a disease;
    the coming into existence, the aggravation, acceleration or recurrence of any other condition, circumstance, occurrence, activity, form of behaviour, course of conduct or state of affairs:
    that is or may be harmful or disadvantageous to me or the community; or
    that may result in harm or disadvantage to me or the community, howsoever arising from my participation in or attendance at the Motorsport Activities;
    to indemnify and hold harmless and keep indemnified Motorsport Australia and the Entities to the maximum extent permitted by law in respect of any Claim by any person; and
    to attend at or participate in the Motorsport Activities at my own risk.
    I understand that:

    nothing in this document excludes, restricts or modifies any rights that I may have as a result of significant personal injury that is caused by the Reckless Conduct of Motorsport Australia and the Entities as the supplier of the Motorsport Activities and Recreational Services;
    nothing in this document prevents Motorsport Australia and the Entities from relying on any laws (including statute and common law) that limit or preclude their liability;
    nothing in this document excludes any term or guarantee which under statute cannot be excluded, however the liability of Motorsport Australia and the Entities is limited to the minimum liability allowable by law;
    nothing in this document precludes me from making a claim under a Motorsport Australia insurance policy where I am expressly entitled to make a claim under that insurance policy; and
    Motorsport Australia has arranged for limited personal injury insurance coverage which may provide me with some protection for loss, damage or injury that I may suffer during my participation in the Motorsport Activities. I acknowledge and accept that the insurance taken out by Motorsport Australia may not provide me with full indemnity for loss, damage or injury that I may suffer during my participation in the Motorsport Activities, and that I may have to pay the excess if a Claim is made under an insurance policy on my behalf. I agree that my own insurance arrangements are ultimately my responsibility and I will arrange any additional coverage at my expense after taking into account Motorsport Australia's insurance arrangements, this document and my own circumstances.
    Where Motorsport Activities are held in the following jurisdictions, I acknowledge that I have also read and accept the following warnings:
    Under Australian Government Consumer Law (which is part of the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Commonwealth)), several guarantees are implied into contracts for the supply of certain goods and services. I agree that the application of all or any of the provisions of Subdivision B of Division 1 of Part 3-2 of Australian Consumer Law (i.e. guarantees relating to the supply of services), the exercise of rights conferred by those provisions, and any liability of Motorsport Australia and the Entities for a failure to comply with any such guarantees, are excluded. However, such exclusion is limited to liability for:

    death, physical or mental injury (including aggravation, acceleration or recurrence of such an injury of the individual);
    contraction, aggravation or acceleration of a disease of an individual; or
    the coming into existence, the aggravation, acceleration or recurrence of any other condition, circumstance, occurrence, activity, form of behaviour, course of conduct or state of affairs in relation to an individual that is or may be harmful or disadvantageous to the individual or the community, or that may result in harm or disadvantage to the individual or the community.
    This exclusion does not apply to significant personal injury suffered by me as a result of the reckless conduct of Motorsport Australia and the Entities.

    Warning Applicable in Relation to Motorsport Activities Held in Victoria
    Warning Under The Australian Consumer Law and Fair Trading Act 2012:
    Under The Australian Consumer Law (Victoria), several statutory guarantees apply to the supply of certain goods and services. These guarantees mean that the supplier named on this form is required to ensure that the recreational services it supplies to me:

    are rendered with due care and skill;
    are reasonably fit for any purpose which I either expressly or by implication, make known to the supplier; and
    might reasonably be expected to achieve any result I have made known to the supplier.
    Under section 22 of the Australian Consumer Law and Fair Trading Act 2012 (Vic), the supplier is entitled to ask me to agree that these conditions do not apply to me. I understand that if I sign this form, I am agreeing that any rights to sue the supplier under the Australian Consumer Law and Fair Trading Act 2012 if I am killed or injured because the services were not in accordance with these guarantees, are excluded, restricted or modified in the way set out in this form.

    Note: I note that the change to my rights, as set out in this form, does not apply if my death or injury is due to gross negligence on the supplier's part.
    "Gross negligence" in relation to an act or omission, means doing the act or omitting to do an act with reckless disregard, with or without consciousness, for the consequences of the act or omission. See regulation 5 of the Australian Consumer Law and Fair Trading Regulations 2012 and section 22(3)(b) of the Australian Consumer Law and Fair Trading Act 2012.

    Warning Applicable in Relation to Motorsport Activities Held in South Australia
    Under sections 60 and 61 of The Australian Consumer Law (SA), if a person in trade or commerce supplies me with services (including recreational services), there is a statutory guarantee that those services:

    will be rendered with due care and skill; and
    any product resulting from those services, will be reasonably fit for the purpose for which the services are being acquired (as long as that purpose is made known to the supplier); and
    any product resulting from those services, will be of such a nature, and quality, state or condition, that they might reasonably be expected to achieve the result that the consumer wishes to achieve, (as long as that wish is made known to the supplier or a person with whom negotiations have been conducted in relation to the acquisition of the services.
    Excluding, Restricting or Modifying My Rights:
    Under section 42 of the Fair Trading Act 1987 (SA), the supplier of recreational services is entitled to ask me to agree to exclude, restrict or modify their liability for any personal injury suffered by me or another person for whom, or on whose behalf, I am acquiring the services (a third party consumer). If I sign this form, I am agreeing to exclude, restrict or modify the supplier's liability with the result that compensation may not be payable if I or the third party consumer suffer personal injury.

    Important:
    I do not have to agree to exclude, restrict or modify my rights by signing this form. The supplier may refuse to provide me with the services if I do not agree to exclude, restrict or modify my rights by signing this form. Even if I sign this form, I may still have further legal rights against the supplier. A child under the age of 18 cannot legally agree to exclude, restrict or modify his or her rights. A parent or guardian of a child who acquires recreational services for the child cannot legally agree to exclude, restrict or modify the child's rights.

    Agreement to exclude, restrict or modify my rights:
    I agree that the liability of Motorsport Australia and the Entities for any death or personal injury that may result from the supply of the recreational services that may be suffered by me (or a person for whom or on whose behalf I am acquiring the services) is excluded. Further information about these rights can be found at www.cbs.sa.gov.au
