    Racing your own car on a professional racing track


    Generally speaking, when you use a professional racing track to race your own car, you are liable for any road traffic accident or damage that occurs during your use of the track.

    That being said, as with standard road-related accident incidents, if you feel that your driving or car management isn’t to blame, and you are able to provide evidence to support your liability claim, you could have a case to claim personal injury compensation.

    Who is liable for my accident on a professional racing track?

    When you are granted permission to use your own car on a professional racing track, you typically use the facilities without an induction on how to drive your vehicle. It is an independent activity, and you will be asked to provide a licence to prove your ownership of the vehicle and your capability to drive it.

    Should you make a mistake or misjudge an area of the professional racing track and this causes a car accident, it is likely that you will be held liable for any damage.

    Yet, if you feel that poor maintenance of the professional racing track, or a problem with the track itself has led to your car accident, and you can provide photographic evidence of this issue, you may have a good case to claim personal injury compensation.

    How can I claim for my accident?

    If the latter is the case for your professional racing track accident, then it is likely that the professional racing track management/owner has failed in their legal responsibility to ensure your health and safety while using the facility.

    They must take reasonable measures to minimise the risk of accidents, in this case, this could include ensuring that the professional racing track is clear of any litter, or that any erosion/potholes are fixed before you take to the track.
