Here are some frequently asked questions about the weather and the answers you need to know:
Q. If it's raining, can I rearrange by booking?
A. No, driving events will usually go ahead in the rain. If you decide not to go you will forfeit your booking and payment. We would not be able to offer a rebooking or refund.
In the situation you are contacted by us or the supplier to say an event has been called off (for any reason) then you would usually be able to rebook or another day.
Neither we or the supplier would be liable for any travel, work or accommodation expenses if an event is called of for reasons out of our control.
Q. Is there shelter from bad weather at the venues?
A. 'Most' venues will have shelter of some form. For the Racing Circuit venues it will be substantial, but for the airfield venues and less glamourous locations it may be a simple marquee or awning.
Most driving venues are large, wide-open spaces so you will be exposed to the weather. The wind chill will be a big factor and it may feel 4 - 5 degrees colder at a venue than is forecast for the area.
On any event we advise you to take waterproof clothes and also a change of clothes if you can see rain is forecast. You will be most exposed during the sign on process as there is usually a queue. It would be sensible to pack some warm clothes.
If you are worried about shelter or the facilities then please contact us or the supplier before the day of your event.
Q. What are my options if I am unable to travel due to bad weather?
A. If the event still goes ahead, then in any situation you would unfortunately forfeit your booking and payment if you don't make it (on time or at all). We please ask customers to respect that this is just bad luck and not the fault of us or the supplier.
It would be impossible to replace your slot at short notice and therefore the cost to us and the supplier remains.
If the event is forced to be cancelled by bad weather, you would usually be able to rebook any part of the experience you have missed.
Neither we or the supplier would be liable for any travel, work or accommodation expenses if an event is postponed due to bad weather.
Q. Would a driving experience or track day still go ahead in the rain?
A. In most cases, yes.
On a supercar driving experience, the braking markers would be adjusted to suit wet track conditions. The instructors would also adjust your driving style accordingly.
Even the best racing drivers in the World have to change their driving style to be safe on a wet track so don't feel hard done by. The right mentality in this situation would be to accept the bad luck that it has rained and to enjoy the fact you are in a Supercar and having fun.
If you have booked a rally, off-road or drifting experience then luck you!
For a track day where you are taking your own car or bike on track - drive/ride within your limits! Everyone will be expected to keep it safe on track. If you come off the track because you are going too fast for the conditions you are likely to get flagged in. The marshals are unlikely to tolerate any more than one warning.
