Policy extension for club social activities 

This liability insurance policy has been extended from just covering Motorsport UK permitted events to include Motorsport UK affiliated club social activities. This is an excellent benefit to clubs and ensures there is a seamless cover in place between the staging of a club event and the social activities of the club. There are however exclusions to be aware of that we have noted below. If you require particular event insurance that is not covered by this extension please contact Bluefin Sport.

The types of social activities, which are included, are of a non-motorsport nature such as:

  • Presentation and Award nights.
  • Annual Dinners.
  • Anniversary Dinners.
  • Fundraising events.
  • Attendance at exhibitions and conferences.
  • Administrative duties.
  • Static Displays.

Please note there are certain EXCLUSIONS attaching to this extension of cover which your club must understand. These are:

  1. Participation in motor sport activities of any kind whatsoever.
  2. Use of Pyrotechnics and Explosions.
  3. Overseas activities.
  4. Commercial activities for commercial gain excepting raffles, prize draws and the like.
  5. Employers Liability.
