I'm trying to get some cover for my first proper trackday and it's not easy. The only company that appears to cover anything is Eggar Lawson and it's not cheap, with some eyewatering excess amounts (or that how it seems to me, I'm a tightwad). Does anyone know anywhere I could get a comparative quote?

Also, how much cover do you track regulars get in relation to the value of the car? - since only bodywork and amp; chassis seem to be covered.

Thanks in advance,
Steve.

Steve,
Shorty`s correct, my normal insurance covers me fully for as many trackdays as I wish to do.I just have to let them know and amp; they issue a seperate cover note for the day, my excess goes up from £400 to £750 and amp; covers everything.Just renewed it 2 weeks ago £880.Its with Norwich Union through Brown Bevan brokers.Speak to Paul Chilman on 0115 8400700
(Evo 5 lots of mods, 47 me and amp; girlfriend drive , no limited mileage live in Yorkshire)

Paul,

Thanks for the advice mate - you are a jammy git, my insurance co (Admiral) thought for 10 seconds and said We don't do that . Looks like I will need to change insurance companies come September. It's off to Eggar Lawson for now.

Silverfun,
Dont take this the wrong way but you let you girlfriend drive, mines alot younger (no offence) but I dont think shes ever going to improve with age.
Heres an example:
Going around a tight corner and her tyres are squealing her response to this is is that me? no other cars on the road, and its only a 1.1 punto for gods sake, i waiting for the engine to drop out.
Would rather let my younger brother drive on a track day ( no you carnt so dont ask, im just making a point) than let her near the keys.
Cheers
Al

Al,
What makes you think my girlfriend is as old as me! I have no problems letting her drive, she is better than a lot of guy`s I know.I have yet to see her come second in a drag from the lights and amp; it just makes me smile sat in the passenger seat with a few beers inside me, she is an absolute car nut.

Paul.

hi, give Nik Kershaw (not the singer!) a call, he is at Competition Car Insurance on 0115 941 5255. The prices are relatively good and they will also give personal injury cover also. The cost is per track day and will cover cost of parts, repairs to parts, fabrication and specialist labour. the cover doesnt extend though to engines or transmission.

Competition Car Insurance and Eggar Lawson are the same company. http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/happy1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >

Paul,
Sorry mate didnt mean to be rude my mate is seeing a lass whos 10 years younger than him and he has a big smile on his face. Anyway does you lass have any female friends that are single cause my girlfriend is really boring, she rather do anything than come and watch cars race or watch me go round in cirles as she puts it!. The only good thing she lives 5 mins from silverstone.
Cheers

Stef,

Just noticed both names on their application form. Do you use Eggar Lawson? I saw you giving it some at Combe a couple of weeks ago - heard the tyres squealing and smelt the clutch and amp; brakes as you passed where I was standing - 10/10 for effort. I hear you had an argument with the scenery - I'm not taking the #### - I'm just interested to know if the insurance co is playing ball and paying up.

Regards
Steve.

PS: I hear that the Porsche Club need a few more for Cadwell on the 9th so if anyone is interested....
