It's a really big big gray zone actually; guess that an insurance can be stipulated for basically everthing by now, the messy part is to prove that certain kind of accidental or not accidental possible damages are included in the stipulated policy.
Example: 911 RSR burnt to the ground; it was caused by chance? it was caused by carelessness of a team's mechanic? it was caused by a manufacturing issue?


If after the expertise, insurance company will assume that damages were caused by a team mistake, very likely just forget to see any refund... it works like this with everyday road cars, guess the same will be with racing cars.

Pescarolo ruined his team when back in 2009 insurance didn't pay for the 908HDi crashed by treluyer.


This kind of sportscars series like IMSA or WEC are insanely expensive for privaters; a team owner shouldn't be surprised to see his cars destroyed soon or later anyway.... some teams can afford the purchase of new cars, some other can't.

Yes, itís never a guarantee. Sometimes insurance just donít care. Especially if you canít prove it was a freak, a manufacturing fault or finger trouble. Accidental damage is a grey area. No one knows what really caused the Porsche to burn to the ground and might remain a mystery for a while

Of course it was different in 09, but I guess teams know the risk in competing in these high profile series

Certainly WEC is very expensive, although IMSA is more sustainable. Privateers are a bit out of place in the former, but are ok in the latter. Of course it depends how much damage you have, but of course all motorsport has itís cost risk involved

During last year spa 6h, also 2 of 3 debuting BR1 dallara chassis ended up in the trash can actually.

One of them I'm sure because dragonspeed got a fresh BR1 chassis just before le mans test and the SMP BR1 that went airborne unlikely was fixable

If you mean SoD riley chassis, the car crashed at the first corner wall during free practice; tub couldn't be fixed and had to use the other riley chassis for the other races before switching to ligier.

Recall 2010 LM where pedro lamy 908HDi retired after 2 hours because of a tub damage that wrecked suspensions, sometimes carbon tubs break without any accident it seems

I thought that the LM '10 suspension failure was due to an attempt to repair a tub that was in a previous accident. Peugeot had a similar issue at Sebring in 2009 during practice.

Actually don't know if that chassis was already damaged, it was a really unsual withdraw indeed.
Enter le mans with a damaged tub + new and not accurately tested titanium rods

Well it could have been. Seems no one has the answer. At least it made Le Mans
