The participants (drivers, co-drivers, motor-vehicle owners and keepers) take part in the Sports Drivers’ Course at their own risk. They shall bear sole responsibility under civil and criminal law for all damage caused by themselves, or by the vehicle which they are using, to third parties.
By effecting their registration, the participants waive all rights of action or of recourse for all damages and accidents suffered in connection with the event against:
The above exclusion of liability and waiver of recourse does not apply to damages arising from loss of life, physical injury and injury to health due to a deliberate or negligent breach of duty, including deliberate or negligent breach of duty by a legal representative or agent of the group of persons excluded from liability, or to other damages due to a deliberate or grossly negligent breach of duty, including deliberate or grossly negligent breach of duty by a legal representative or agent of the group of persons excluded from liability.
The participants hereby undertake to settle any damage which they have caused or for which they are culpable (e.g. guard rails) directly with the party suffering the damage (if appropriate via third-party liability insurance). Tacit exclusions of liability remain unaffected by the foregoing liability exclusion clause.
If participants use a vehicle not registered in their name, the vehicle’s keeper must be informed of the declaration of liability exclusion/waiver, and must likewise sign the entry form in token of his agreement. Should this obligation fail to be met, the participant hereby indemnifies the foregoing group of persons against any claim for compensation brought by the vehicle’s owner or a third party (as part of the above restriction: deliberate or grossly negligent damage/physical injury).
The announcement for the Sports Drivers’ Course and the mutual legal relations of all persons involved is subject to German Law. The place of jurisdiction is Hamburg.
