How many evo drivers insure their cars for track days?

Do you need a specialist one off insurance for the day or do many of the standard insurance companies cover this and for how much?

Or do you just take the risk?

I am interested as I hope to buy and EVO 7 next year and I DEFINATELY want to do some track days!!!

Ring Nik or Georgina at Egger Lawson on 01159 415255 - They have different levels of cover and most people seem to use them.

Nik charged me £55 for £5000 cover for a Goodwood track day recently - I thought it would be difficult to do more than £5000 worth of damage - but a Skyline owner showed you can do a lot more than that!

Think you'll find that the £55 has now gone up to £80 with a £750 excess,

So in effect £4250 worth of cover for the day for £80

My policy with Norwich Union covers me for any track day all year round, as many times as I want - nothing to pay, except a £1k excess. Policy costs me £1280 a year.

Only £5k of cover for a £20k|PLS| car, not something I would consider! I assume they can do higher rate cover for a higher premium?
Speaking of Goodwood and insurance I know someone who witnessed a M3 being TOTALLY written off at Goodwood (barrel roll, the works, every single panel was damaged!) in fact I think the bloke was lucky to be alive. Obviously if you drive like a tit then expect to get burnt but even so £5k cover is a little lean for my liking

Some track insurance cover is for body damage only, hence the low amount. I think Egger Lawson's cover is just for this, it certainly used to be.

They offer a range of sums assured and excesses. Last time I checked it was £155 for £17000(£2000 excess) and £205 for £22000(£2000 excess). As mines a company car I get damage to £5k repaired on the insurance and above that I get my P45.
I think DaveG may be right - impact damage to engine and transmission may not be covered, although it would seem that other non bodywork parts may be.
The policy is underwritten by Norwich Union, and if it was my own car I'd be going down the same route as Blade.

Which corner did the M3 do its gymnastics? St Marys (the left hander)? Seems to be an accident black spot - parallelum effect according to my instructor (whatever that is!).
