Indemnity

All entrants must read, sign and submit this form prior to entering the race. If an entrant is under the age of 18 years, a parent or guardian must sign on their behalf. Failure to comply with the Conditions of Entry and Rules or with directions of race marshalls on the day may result in an entrant being personally liable for any injury or damage they cause.
All entrants accept that billy cart racing has the potential to cause personal injury and/or damage and enter at their own risk. Entrants also accept that they are responsible for the safe handling, design and build of their Billy Cart regardless of any inspections or clearances by race marshalls.
