MAKING A PURCHASE
Making your Race Shift European track day event purchase using the latest Race Shift website technology could not be easier. Simply navigate to the track day event you wish to purchase and select the required event by clicking on the event of your choice.
Once your deposit payment has been received by Race Shift, a booking form will be supplied by email for you to complete with your specific details for example, which rider group you would initially like to be placed in based on your experience and ability.
We accept credit card and debit card payment using World Pay. If you are shopping from Europe or anywhere else, place your order and your credit card company will convert the transaction to Euros or your own currency. When confirmation of order is received, this is to indicate that we have received your order. It does not indicate that a contract exists between us. We will indicate acceptance of your order, and hence a contract between us, when we send you the final order confirmation after full and final payment has been received. We have included this term to protect us in the case that a mistake has been made in pricing, we have inadvertently under-priced goods, or we are no longer able to supply a product for some reason. In the case of a change of price, we will always contact you first to ensure that the price is acceptable. All credit card payments are subject to an additional and non-refundable & non-transferable extra charge of 1.5% (there is no extra charge for debit card payments).

ORDERING
All orders for Goods shall be deemed to be an offer by the Rider to purchase Goods pursuant to these Terms and Conditions and are subject to acceptance by RS. RS may choose not to accept an order for any reason.
When making an order through the Website, the technical steps the Rider needs to take to complete the order process are as follows. During the payment process the Rider will be prompted for two addresses. The Rider must enter the full address of the cardholder (this address is the one that appears on your credit card statements), and then optionally the delivery address if different. The cardholders address must match with the card issuers records or we regret that we cannot accept payment. This ensures that the credit card details may only be used by the Buyer.

PAYMENT, REFUNDS AND CANCELLATIONS
For European track day bookings (Events held outside of the UK):

Under No Circumstances can the Rider sell or change the riders Name, without the written permission from Race Shift.
A non-refundable & non-transferable deposit of £200 per rider is payable at the time of booking, followed by the full & final payment one calendar month before the event. If a credit/debit card is used for the deposit payment, unless you tell us and we specifically agree otherwise in advance, we will automatically charge the final payment to the same debit/credit card one calendar month before the event. Cancellations notified to us more than one calendar month before the event will forfeit the deposit payment (deposit payments are non-transferable, so they cannot be transferred to another event). Cancellations notified to us less than one calendar month before the event will forfeit all monies paid.

Attending the Event
The Rider accepts that riding a motorcycle and participating in the TE, on whatever racing circuit, track, road, or other surface or terrain and whether on public or private highways and regardless of the circumstances or conditions, is inherently dangerous and that it is consequently very difficult for RS to insure against risk of injury or other damage. The Rider therefore and hereby variously agrees, warrants, undertakes and accepts that in participating in the TE, whether on a public or private highway or at or on such route or course as may be taken for the purposes of the TE, he is (a) voluntarily exposing himself to and will assume all and any risk of damage or loss or personal injury whether to his person, property or otherwise howsoever (b) solely responsible for the manner in which he rides (c) under a legal obligation at all material times to ride with reasonable care and skill in relation to himself and others (d) responsible for ensuring that he wears appropriate protective clothing that is reasonably fit for its intended purpose (e) under a legal obligation to and will take all steps reasonably required to ensure that nothing he does, or fails to do, will adversely affect the health and safety of RS or other participants in the TE or any third party and (f) solely responsible for injury, damage or loss that he causes to others.

The Rider accepts that in requesting which rider group he would like to be in, he makes representation as to his ability to ride in that group and accepts responsibility for any loss or damage arising from him being in the wrong rider group.

Should circumstances outside the control of RS require RS to do so, RS reserves the right to, without prior notice, make any changes deemed necessary to facilitate the TE and / or any other service obtained by RS or its Partners at the request of the Rider

By way of further assurance to RS, the Rider hereby and variously warrants and declares that (a) he is fit & healthy, and that he knows of no reason, medical or otherwise, why he may not or which might otherwise influence the decision of RS to allow him to participate in the TE (b) his eyesight (with spectacles or lenses which he will wear as necessary) is adequate for the purposes of the TE (c) he holds a current full road driving licence or a current competition licence appropriate for the size & type of vehicle he will use and for the circumstances and venue appointed for the TE and that (d) he will not participate in the TE whilst using, under the influence of or suffering withdrawal from the consequences of alcohol, drugs or medication.

The Rider understands accepts and agrees that (a) RS is not a training organisation and does not represent itself as such and that (b) whilst RS may, it is not obliged to, give guidance on the standards of riding required and (c) it is not in a position to and will not otherwise enforce or be responsible for and hereby disclaims all and any liability for rider discipline or rider safety.

Both RS and the Rider agree that nothing in this Agreement shall exclude or in any way limit RS’s liability for fraud, or for death or personal injury caused by its negligence, or any other liability to the extent such liability may not be excluded or limited as a matter of law but further agree that RS may and hereby a) excludes its liability to the Rider for any loss of opportunity, employment contracts, business, salary or other remuneration and profits and for any special indirect or consequential loss or damage whether in contract, warranty, civil wrong (including negligence and breach of statutory duty), or howsoever otherwise, arising out of the performance or breach of this Agreement and b) limits its liability to the Rider, in respect of all and any other claims to (i) a sum equal to the loss directly and naturally arising from RS breach of the express terms of this Agreement and (ii) not exceeding the amount of the sums paid and received by RS from the Rider under the terms of this Agreement; and in any event strictly provided that and in respect of (iii) such claims as are notified to RS, in writing, within 28 days of the Rider first becoming, or when he ought reasonably to have become, aware of them.

The Rider further agrees to defend, indemnify, and hold RS harmless against any claims, damages costs, expenses & losses arising out of any claim made against them by any persons where such costs & losses are attributable directly or indirectly to the Rider’s negligence or participation or other involvement in the TE or his breach of any of the terms of this Agreement.
RS reserve the right to withdraw its services, without refund or any other right to claim for compensation, loss or damage or otherwise whatsoever, and will be under no further obligation to provide the TE or other any service or facility if the rider is judged by RS as acting irresponsibly, unreasonably by or in a manner likely to endanger or cause loss or damage to the Rider, RS or others.

FLIGHTS, HOTEL ACCOMMODATION & CAR RENTAL
RS do not provide these services as part of our current package, and consequently do not accept any responsibility for all provisions of the same.

TRACKDAY & TRAVEL INSURANCE:
If you are taking part in a track day event abroad, suitable medical insurance is compulsory. Note that a European Heath Insurance Card (which has now replaced the old E111) and most standard travel insurance policies do not cover dangerous pastimes such as track days. However, specialist medical insurance can be arranged for a relatively low outlay, details of insurance products that are suitable for our European track events can be found by visiting our insurance page.

Travel
We accept no liability if a participant is unable to attend an event due to adverse weather conditions or any travel disruption.

Filming & Sound Recording
