I presume that would be some kind of third party liability rather than simply for theft. There'll soon be specialist policies I'm sure. But it all adds costs that weren't there last month.

I have insurance on the Rover for transport and paddock. Race is separate. The MG is fully road registered and has fully comp insurance.

Around £400 per annum. Trailer is also insured, another £200 roughly.

Bit grey I know but as it happened no one was interested.
Maybe in the middle of the summer when we are all returning from Spa they might take more interest, but then they are all under staffed.

Did I get lucky ? Time will tell.

Thanks for keeping us posted Andy. I recon I was the last racer back into UK before Brexit and you were the first out.

It certainly all depends on exactly what type of insurance is actually required. Don't forget that it was only about a year ago that motor racing vehicles were exempted from having to be covered by insurance when it was mandated that all off-road machinery were so covered.

They still are in the UK. I recall Mike B telling me he wouldn't transport any race cars unless they were insured.

But what insurance, Peter? I can imagine that Mike may have been concerned only about accidental damage and/or theft insurance, so that he was covered against the event of any possible claim.

I suspect that in order to pass through with a car on a trailer using a V5C, you will also need a green card which is what they mean by needing insurance. You can then show intent to use on the road and thus the car isnt goods.

You will also need the same for your paddock bike too

This article also raises a point we have identified internally - need to bring back any broken spares/used tyres etc so the carnet matches the one on the way out.

Yup that is correct. And both my race cars are insured for that. Additionally the MG is insured for the road and is road registered.

I used to have car/trailer/toolbox insurance but canned it some years ago as it wasn't enough to cover the car and didn't cover everything I felt I needed . . . Now I mot/tax and insure the cortina as a road car. . Have never insured it for racing, but would if I ever did certain events again.

BoT . . . could you drive your car on the ferry, wife/mate drives tow car, into France, then hire/borrow a trailer from a French Friend ? (rental/hire business opportunity!) tool kit, spare wheels is standard car fitmnt in the boot . . . . obviously won't work if you're intent on taking an Artic and a fully fitted kitchen in a giant marquee, but not all of us 'need' that.

Blimey, does this mean I've got to buy a paddock bike now?

Here's a question on a hypothetical car. Let's assume for the purpose of this question that Lairy Canary was a new build bodyshell on a new build chassis, and because it was never intended to run on public roads, it was not registered with DVLA and therefore does not have a V5C. Is it therefore possible to obtain a green card as you couldn't insure it in the normal way by dealing with a company like Direct Line?

And how are private individuals, like our old friend Mike, who build their own machines, possibly in their home garage, supposed to provide paperwork showing the value of the car when it may well have been built in their spare time. How do you calculate the time costs that Graham puts in to creating and fettling his Lola T492, when he does it in his spare time?

Nope, but I find it a long way to carry the beer and BBQ to Rivage when not driving in the 6 hour!!!
