    Obviously NOT an SCCA sanctioned event.

    What's worse is his insurance company will likely deny his vehicle damage claim and possible his passenger's bodily injury claim since he was driving in a "speed related contest".

    Topping out 1st into 2nd, That's a pretty hardcore fucking hit if you ask me.

    But yeah, shit happens, not the best place to be racing though with trees everywhere and shit.

    :eek: wow. He didn't do all that great. I really wanted about 2 or minutes of footage. But that really shocked me when he hit the **********. who in the hell does stuff like that with tree's around? who puts trees in the middle of parking lot?! probably some redneck place.

    he doesn't have a choice. There is no way that passenger wasn't injured so they had to call 911, the ambulance arrives with the police. The police write a report which includes a narrative of what happened.

    If they don't call 911 and have someone else takes the passenger to the hospital how the hell do you explain that much damage happening in a parking lot?! We investigate claims. We don't just take you at your word. ESPECIALLY in a case like this.

    I repeat... :idiot:

    who says that there was a passenger. In autocross, you rarely have one, unless your trying to teach a noobie.

    However, autocross is actually defined as "skills challenge" instead of Racing.

    A few people at honda-tech have had crashes like this (one was a ITR that spun, and went ass first into a gaurd rail, and totaled it) and there insurance company paid for the repairs, but droped them soon after.

    :edit: not an agency... an insurance company and, yes, there IS a difference..


    I said "...likely..." to not pay for the repairs...its contractual


    you say "skills challenge". your insurance company says "speed challenge" who do you think wins that arguement?

    If I'm the adjuster handling the claim I'm likely to deny the passenger's BI claim for "assuming the risk" of injury for getting in the car in the first place.

    As for the car's damage, that's a policy contract issue. If there is an exclusion for damaged occurring in a "speed related" contest, then it's likely to get disclaimed. If there is no exclusion, then the policy would be non-renewed at the next opportunity.

    I dunno, but I would kill to get on an autocross circuit like that.

    A risk, yeah. But that's pretty close to pod racing - and it's the thrill that allures me to racing, not the safety.

    I want trees.
