1. Risks Associated with Participation
I acknowledge and realise that participation in an event such as the Rico Rally (the ‘Event’) is potentially dangerous and that there are numerous risks associated with my participation. Such risks and dangers include, but are not limited to, traffic accidents, the negligence of other drivers and collisions with pedestrians, vehicles, other drivers or fixed/moving objects. Further, I fully understand and realise that my participation in the Event may result in serious bodily injury and/or death to myself or others. I further realise and understand that the route of the Event will require driving on public roads upon which the hazards of travelling are to be expected. Further, I realise that participation in the Event will require strenuous physical exertion as participants will be required to drive for very long periods of time over several days, including the risk of driving through inclement weather.
2. Assumption of Risks
With full knowledge and understanding of the risks associated with my participation in the Event, I enter it voluntarily and fully accept and assume every such risk for loss, damage, or injury (including death).
3. Compliance with Terms and Conditions
I agree to comply with all the Event’s terms and conditions of entry. I acknowledge and understand that the organisers of the Event will use reasonable efforts to ensure that other participants abide by the terms and conditions of entry, but cannot guarantee this.
4. Release of Liability
Upon booking and being permitted to participate in the Event, I hereby waive, release, and forever discharge, for myself, my heirs, executors, administrators and legal representatives, any and all rights and/or claims which I have, may have, or may hereafter accrue to me against the Event organisers, its officers, directors, employees, consultants, agents and sponsors for any and all damages, injuries (including death), and/or claims which may be sustained by me directly or indirectly arising out of my participation in the Event (including the application of emergency or medical services) even if the damages, injuries (including death), and/or claims are caused by the negligence of those persons listed above or otherwise save that nothing in these terms and conditions shall be construed as excluding or limiting the organiser’s liability for personal injury or death arising from its negligence or the negligence of persons under its control. Further, I covenant not to sue the Event organisers, its officers, directors, employees, consultants, agents and sponsors for any and all damages, injuries (including death), and/or claims which may be sustained by me directly or indirectly arising out of my participation in the Event. This release and discharge includes, but is not limited to, claims for personal injury, death, property damage, economic loss, breach of contract, lost wages, contribution indemnity, indemnity, punitive damages, negligence, or any other legally recognisable claim arising out of my participation in the Event (including all legal costs associated with such claims).
I hereby agree to release, defend, indemnify, and hold harmless the Event organisers, its officers, directors, employees, consultants, agents, sponsors, licensees and assigns from and against any and all claims, demands, damages, suits, liabilities or actions arising directly or indirectly out of my actions or otherwise from my participation in the Event whether made or claimed during or after the Event, including all associated costs and expenses and any amounts which the organisers may pay as a settlement or compromise of any such claims or liabilities.
6. Image Rights
I hereby waive any and all rights of publicity or privacy and grant the organisers full and complete permission to utilise and exploit my name, image, likeness, voice and biographical material in any and all manner and media throughout the world in perpetuity. I release the Event organisers, its officers, directors, employees, consultants, agents, sponsors, licensees and assigns from and against any and all claims which I have or may have for invasion of privacy, defamation or any other cause of action arising out of the production, distribution, broadcast or exhibition of photographs, footage or any promotional materials.
I have read this waiver, fully understand its terms, and understand that I have given up substantial rights by signing it (whether in writing or electronically). I have done so freely and without inducement, coercion or duress. I intend this waiver to be a complete and unconditional release of all liability to the greatest extent allowed by law. I agree that, if any portion of this waiver is held to be invalid, that the balance of the waiver shall continue in full force and effect.
Please note that by completing the entry form and accepting the Terms and Conditions and this Release & Waiver you are concluding a legally binding agreement with us to participate in the Event on these quoted terms and conditions.
