You will pay to Avanti forthwith on demand and as a debt, the full cost of all and any damage occasioned by Driver to any vehicle (including all and any components of it) provided to You by Avanti at an Avanti Event except where any provable manifest failure of the vehicle occurs and which directly causes the damage arising.

  12. Participation by You in any Avanti Event is entirely at your and/or Driver risk to the full extent permitted by law.

  18. If a vehicle provided by Avanti breaks down and cannot be repaired or substituted for that Avanti Event then Avanti will provide You with credit for use at an alternative subsequent Avanti Event. The value of the credit will be proportional to the amount of the Avanti Event that has elapsed at the point of such breakdown. No refunds will be paid.

  19. In the event that You purchase through Avanti additional Event services such as third party car hire, accommodation, vehicle or personal transportation or ferries then it is Agreed between You and Avanti that Avanti is not responsible to You for the actual provision of the relevant services and has no control over nor responsibility for any defect in the standard of or actual provision of the relevant service(s) to You and that any redress in respect of such services is a matter entirely between You and the service provider. Such additional services are invoiced to You only at cost price to Avanti.

Track Car Hire - Section 4.

  1. When you hire one of our cars you are guaranteed use of the car for at least 60 minutes split into at least 4 sessions. Depending on weather, track conditions and driving standards, actual time in the car is normally higher. We do not restrict maximum use, but mandate cooling and equipment checking breaks between sessions.

  2. Accidents: In the event of an accident the excess liability is always with the driver and not the purchaser - all drivers must sign an agreement to this effect. Please see section 3 paragraph 10 above.

  3. Instruction: Tuition is included in the price. The instructor reserves the right to terminate the experience should the standard of driving or level of experience necessitate so.

  4. Age Restrictions: All drivers must be 18 or over with a full road licence. Please refer to section 3 paragraph 11 above for excess conditions. Unfortunately, we do not allow junior drivers (regardless of race licences held) in our rental cars.

  5. Physical Restrictions: There are no physical restrictions for driving our cars. However, drivers over 6'2" tall or over 16 stone may struggle to drive a standard car as cockpit space is limited.

  6. Avanti reserves the right to refuse access to the cars to any person not deemed safe to drive, or behaving in a competitive or aggressive manner. Additionally, we reserve the right to downgrade your booking to a car of lower performance if we feel your level of experience is not suitable for the car you have booked. In this instance, a pro-rata refund will be issued which reflects the difference in prices paid.

Gift Vouchers - Section 5.

  1. Monetary vouchers can be redeemed against any Avanti Event. Vouchers can only be redeemed against the specific Avanti Event purchased for and cannot be redeemed against any other experience or track day. Vouchers are valid for 12 months from the date of purchase. Please note vouchers cannot be extended once they have expired and no refunds will be given. Vouchers cannot be exchanged for cash or other denominated vouchers. If an intended purchase is for a higher amount than the face value of the voucher(s) the difference can be made up with cash or card payment. If a purchase is for a lower amount, no change can be given. Vouchers cannot be used in conjunction with any special promotions, discount tokens, coupons or cards.

  2. Avanti reserves the right to change the terms and conditions of the voucher, experience, product details or event calendar without prior notice. In all cases where possible changes will be communicated on our website in advance.
