CANCELLATION POLICY

HOTT has a 14-day cancellation policy. If you wish to cancel your reservation, you will receive full credit toward another HOTT event if you cancel prior to the 14-day window. There are no refunds or credits.   Cancellations will notbe accepted with less than 14 days’ notice. HOTT reservations are transferable to another person that you designate, see below.

HOTT issues credits equal to the original purchase price of that event, (if notified within 14 days).  Credits for HOTT events can be used toward any event, providing the event is not sold out at the time you wish to use your credit.  Credits must be used within 12 months of purchase.  Per our policy, a cancellation must occur 14 days prior to the event for full credit. Cancellations occurring within the two-week period will result in forfeit of payment. 

Please be advised, HOTT administration will not break this policy, so please do not ask as there are no exceptions to the rule. To preclude forfeiture of payment, in the event you are unable to attend a track day beyond the two-week cancellation window; you are allowed to transfer your purchased date(s) to an alternative rider. To ensure registration of your alternate attendee, you must contact the HOTT office 72 hours prior to the event.

RAIN POLICY

We ride rain or shine! There are no refunds or credits if you cancel an event due to rain. This means, if it’s raining or if rain is predicted at the event you are canceling, you will Not receive a refund or a credit.  You can, however, sell your ticket if you are within the 72-hour time frame.

MEDICAL INSURANCE

HOTT does not provide medical insurance. All riders are responsible for providing their own personal medical insurance coverage.

REQUIREMENTS:  WAIVER   /   LIABILITY

All riders are Required to carefully read and, if agreed, sign the VIMC/HOTT Waiver and hand in to a Higgy’s staff member each morning of each event.  Generally speaking the waiver states that participation in Track Days is dangerous and that you will not hold HOTT or VIMC, their volunteers and staff, or any participants, riders or attendees liable for injury, damages, etc.    You will Not be allowed on track until we receive your signed Waiver.   All riders are expected to ride in a safe, courteous, and careful (“ride within your limits”) manner on track, but also in the paddock, parking lot, and the facility in general.

All riders MUST attend the mandatory morning riders meeting. Non-attendees will not be allowed on the track until they have sufficiently reviewed all aspects of missed riders’ meeting.

  • Riding a motorcycle on track is dangerous.  Serious Injury and even death is possible at a motorcycle track day.  All riders who ride and or attend a HOTT Track Day do so entirely at their own risk and responsibility.
  • All riders are responsible for their own personal medical insurance coverage. HOTT does not provide medical insurance. Reckless riding of any kind is subject to ejection from the event.
  • Crashing– DON’T. If you do crash, the accident will be evaluated and if it is determined that it was caused by reckless or unsafe riding, it will result in ejection from the day’s event. If we feel it was just a simple incident and the medical staff clears you to be able to continue, we will attempt to return your bike back to a condition that is safe to ride and if desired, we will get you back on course.
  • 15 vehicles are allowed on track at any given time/session.
  • Any accidents, incidents, injuries, or damages having occurred must be promptly reported to Higgy’s staff.
  • All motorcycles and safety gear must be inspected by tech inspection prior to re-entry to the track. The inspection is not a formal inspection;  each rider is responsible for the careful and complete preparation of their motorcycle(s) to withstand the severe demands of day of performance riding at the track.
  • Interruptions that occur during a HOTT track day caused by breaks, weather conditions, traffic, emissions, or safety, shall not be credited.
  • Falsification or misuse of tech stickers (group jumping) will result in ejection from day’s event.   No Refunds.
  • We have very specific requirements for rider safety gear and motorcycles. We cover this in detail under General Information (Riding Gear Requirements).
  • If an unregistered rider is found riding a registered rider’s bike, both the registered and unregistered riders will be ejected from the day’s event and banned from HOTT for the remainder of the year.  No Refunds.
  • Alcohol consumption, Cannabis consumption (of any kind), and illegal substances are strictly prohibited at any HOTT event.  Having any medical issues that require to use such substances does not give you permission to participate.
  • HOTT reserves the right to refuse admission to any individual.
  • Riders ejected from any HOTT event forfeit all payments/credits for that day.
  • Severability Clause:  Should one or more provisions of this agreement be or become invalid or void, this shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions.  The invalid provision shall be replaced by such valid provision as shall come closest, in factual and economic terms, to what the parties had intended.
  • Any amendments or additions to this agreement shall require written form.  Oral side agreements shall be valid only if confirmed in writing.   HOTT’s general terms and conditions shall be part of this agreement only if and to the extent that this was explicitly agreed to in writing.
