Terms and Conditions of Use
All students will need to be physically and mentally prepared. If you have any physical or mental cognizance limitations that may impact or impair your ability to drive a race car, please contact us so that we may discuss this with you directly.
Prior to all ABRS programs, students will be required to sign personal risk & liability waivers, indemnifying ABRS of any injury, loss, or damages to their personal equipment incurred during the event.
Allen Berg Racing Schools offers a full spectrum of racing programs that can take you from the sidelines all the way to the top level of pro racing. However, as in all forms of motorsports, crash damage responsibility is sometimes a concern.
Students are responsible for accident damage in any of our formula car programs. Formula car programs may offer an optional crash damage insurance liability policy, reducing students' maximum accident damage exposure. If you have an incident that results in damage to ABRS equipment, you may continue, albeit at the discretion of ABRS staff.
Although accidents do occasionally occur, it is extremely rare that a spin or mistake on track will result in any damage. When you sign in on the first day of the course, you will be requested to sign a Damage Liability Agreement, complete with your credit card details, in case of accident damage.
Reservations, Rescheduling, and Cancellations
Refunds are available up to 60 days prior to an event (excludes programs purchased with special pricing or offers). After 60 days, no refunds are possible, but you may reschedule your course. If it is necessary to reschedule, please notify ABRS immediately. Customers may reschedule one time only. Rescheduling is accepted up to 30 days prior to a course at a 5% charge of your total course cost. Rescheduling less than 30 days and more than 15 days prior to your course will incur a 25% handling fee based on the total cost of your program. Rescheduling cannot be granted within 15 days prior to the originally scheduled course. ABRS offers covid insurance at a nominal fee with more lenient rescheduling terms to protect your investment, please refer to our Covid Insurance policy for more information.
No-shows will result in a forfeiture of all previously paid funds. We are not responsible for personal or business conflicts, canceled travel arrangements, medical emergencies, or other unforeseen changes in your plans that prevent you from attending your event. Exceptions cannot be made for any reason, and a refund or alternate date will not be granted.
If you need to reschedule, you can change to another date or you can go to "to be scheduled" status until you are ready to take your course. You are responsible for any increase in course prices if you choose to reschedule a course after the original purchase date.
For programs purchased by way of special offers or pricing, there are no refunds. However, we will reschedule your program in accordance with our rescheduling policy.
If you have paid your deposit by way of a credit card, we will automatically charge the outstanding balance of your event to this card 30 days prior to your event date without notice unless an alternate form of payment has been previously arranged.
All group or corporate reservations require a 50% deposit at the time of booking, and full payment is due 30 days prior to the course. Any bookings within 30 days of the event require full payment at the time of booking. Payment can be made by wire transfer, money order, bank draft, cash, AMEX, VISA, MasterCard, Diners Club, or Discover.
Cancellation or rescheduling of a group or corporate exclusive event must be made 120 days or more prior to the initially scheduled event date.
Prerequisites for Basic Formula Car Programs
All students who participate in an ABRS formula car program only require road car driving experience – no previous high performance or competitive driving experience is required. The cars are equipped with 5 speed manual gearboxes. We highly encourage students to be proficient in operating a manual transmission. The inability to drive a stick shift can greatly affect your own experience as well as those around you.
ABRS reserves the right to remove any driver from a program at any time if staff feels the driver is incapable of handling a race car or is driving in an unsafe manner creating hazardous conditions for themselves or others around them.
Formula car courses are restricted to drivers 14 years and older. Students under 18 years of age must either have a current, valid driver's license or provide us with prior driving/racing experience for review and acceptance prior to registering.
Prerequisites for Advanced Programs
All students who wish to participate in an ABRS formula car lapping program must have taken an ABRS one or two Day Formula School or equivalent at another ASN Recognized Formula Car Racing School. Once you have shown evidence that you have previous experience, it is up to the sole discretion of staff to determine your qualifications to step into these advanced programs, you may be required to take an additional ABRS half, or one day course.
Gift Certificates are refundable within 30 days of date on certificate (dated the day of recipient’s birthday, Christmas etc.) after 30 days certificates are fully transferable to another recipient but non-refundable.
Rain Checks and Course Cancellations
In the event of a declared rain out (subject to the discretion of ABRS staff), third party cancellation (such as track unavailability) or force majeur, ABRS will make every effort to reschedule your event or any missed portion thereof as conveniently as possible. Refunds will not be granted if a course cannot be completed due to weather or unforeseeable situations out of the control of ABRS.
ABRS personnel, at their sole discretion, shall have the right to cancel a student’s enrollment in any ABRS program at any point and at any time prior to or during an event if ABRS staff considers the ABRS student not capable or willing to operate ABRS equipment in accordance to ABRS instruction and policies. In this instance there will be no refund whatsoever.
Should your racecar experience a technical failure ABRS shall immediately transfer you into another school car to complete your course.
It is the responsibility of the student to come appropriately dressed including footwear for the school in accordance to our recommendations. Inadequate footwear may impede the safe control of your vehicle and is grounds for refusal of entry into programs.
ABRS courses are designed to provide a graduated learning experience; each module is built upon the previous one. Further, in order to give you the maximum amount of track time and experience for your investment, ABRS courses are run on tight schedules and are time certain. If a student is late for a course, ABRS will make every effort to accommodate the student into the program. However, if this would impede the other students program, or if the student has missed critical classroom information or driving exercises, they may be refused entry into the course. Please be punctual or call us if you will be late!
