Exclusion of Liability

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 organiser and the persons listed in the programme,
  • ADAC, DMSB, Nürburgring Betriebs GmbH, Fahrsicherheitszentrum am Nürburgring GmbH & Co. KG as well as their employees and freelance instructors who deal with this event and all sponsors, their presidents, management boards, shareholders, managing directors and full-time staff,
  • Government authorities, service providers, and all other persons connected with the organisation of the Sports Drivers’ Course,
  • the body responsible for road construction, insofar as damage is caused by the characterises of the roads, with accessories, to be used in the Sports Drivers’ Course, and
  • the agents and officers of all the foregoing persons and agencies,
  • the other participants (drivers, co-drivers, their assistants, motor-vehicle owners and keepers),
  • their own instructors, coaches, co-drivers (other special agreements between drivers, instructors, coaches, co-drivers take precedence) and own assistants, even if instructors or coaches drive in participants’ vehicles at the request of participants and if participants have themselves carried in the vehicles of the organiser or his employees (e.g. training drives).

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.
