Vancouver Island Motosports Events, Release of Liability, Indemnity Agreement and Signing-on document.

This document isn't greatly different to Liability Release documents we have used previously, just tidied up a little. Each event participant will need to sign one of these before every event.


The Document:


Vancouver Island Motosports Events - VIME

PARTICIPANT RELEASE OF LIABILITY. WAIVER OF CLAIMS. ASSUMPTION OF RISKS. INDEMNITY AGREEMENT. SIGNING-ON DOCUMENT.

(hereinafter referred to as the “Release Agreement”)

Participant name:…………………………………………………………………………..

BY SIGNING THIS RELEASE AGREEMENT YOU WAIVE OR GIVE UP CERTAIN RIGHTS, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO SUE OR CLAIM COMPENSATION FROM VANCOUVER ISLAND MOTOSPORTS EVENTS, THE VIME PROPRIETOR(S) AND INDIVIDUALS ACTING ON BEHALF OF VIME (the Released Parties) FOLLOWING AN INCIDENT OR ACCIDENT, REGARDLESS OF HOW IT MAY HAVE BEEN CAUSED.

YOU WILL ALSO BE SIGNING TO DECLARE YOU UNDERSTAND THAT THE EVENT YOU ARE ABOUT TO PARTICIPATE IN IS NOT A RACE OR SPEED EVENT.

IN ORDER TO PARTICIPATE IN THE UPCOMING EVENT YOU ARE REQUIRED TO SIGN THIS WAIVER.

BY SIGNING THIS RELEASE AGREEMENT, YOU (THE RIDER) ALSO AGREE THAT:

- You are at least 19 years of age,

- that you hold a full-entitlement motorcycle licence and are a competent rider,

- that you hold ICBC road motorcycle insurance (or equivalent) and that your motorcycle is “plated”,

- that you have (to the best of your knowledge) no illness or disability that will impair your ability to participate in the event which you have entered,

- that you undertake to NOT operate motor vehicles while under the influence of intoxicating substances,

- that you undertake to obey all reasonable instructions received from event staff,

AND

- that you undertake to obey all aspects of the motoring legislation of the Province of British Columbia.

VIME backcountry navigation trials are solo-rider tests of routefinding through the backcountry of BC.

- The routes follow “gazetted roads” - that is backcountry gravel roads designated as public highways within the legislation of British Columbia.

- As such, these roads are open, public roads and other traffic must be expected at every moment.

- Given the routes will be “highways”, you the participant, agree to wear and/or use at all times, personal protective equipment required by law and prudent motorcycle operations, including (but not limited to) safety helmets, eye protection, gloves, boots, appropriate protective clothing.

- The roads, despite being designated highways, are likely to be unmaintained. The road conditions are “as found” and not altered by the event organisers.

- Within the context of BC law, road users of backcountry roads assume personal responsibility for their safety and vehicles when using these roads.

Other traffic is highly likely to be oncoming and unaware (and potentially indifferent) of your existence on the road.

AT ALL TIMES RIDE AS IF YOUR WORST NIGHTMARE IS AROUND THE NEXT CORNER!

The average speeds called for in “regularity rally” classes will ALWAYS be less than the posted speed limits. Regularity Rally is a motorsport discipline that tests the ability of participants to ride to a set speed over a variety of changing terrains (not their ability to ride at high speed). THIS IS NOT A RACE!

You, the signer, acknowledge that participation in Motorsports is potentially hazardous to the extent of physical injury and/or death.

You understand the dangers and risks and that you ACKNOWLEDGE AND ASSUME ALL INHERENT DANGERS AND RISKS.
