No variation of these terms and conditions shall be binding on The Company unless in writing and signed by a Director of The Company. No relaxation or indulgence which The Company may from time to time extend to the Organiser shall in any way prejudice or act as a waiver of The Company’s rights hereunder.
2. Receipt of either a deposit or full balance for an event shall constitute a binding contract (“the booking”) between the person named on the Booking Form (“the Organiser”) and The Company subject to the terms and conditions set out below.

a. Any alterations in the specifications upon which the contract is based.
b. Any variation in the original order made at the request of The Company

4. CONTRACT PRICE. Bookings will only be accepted upon receipt of a deposit, which may be either £10.00 per person, 10% of the full cost of the contract price at the time of booking or £100.00 (whichever is the greater amount), providing this is more that 14 days prior to the event and such payment shall be a condition of acceptance of the booking. Bookings made within 14 days of an event must be paid in full and such payment shall be a condition of acceptance of the booking. Bookings made for fewer than six drivers will require payment in full regardless of how far in advance the reservation is being made. Full and final payment for bookings made more than 14 days prior to an event shall be made within 14 days of the receipt of the deposit. If The Customer fails to make the above payment then The Company reserves the right to cancel the booking.

b. Less than 28 days prior to the event - No refund
c. Race fees will not be refunded to any driver because that driver fails to attend or is withdrawn from the racing for any reason
The cancellation fee has been calculated to represent a reasonable assessment by The Company of the loss it will suffer as a result of the cancellation.
11. Any event cancelled by The Company due to non-payment of race fees can only be reinstated subject to a booking fee of 10% of the gross amount.
12. All bookings are made subject to availability. Bookings may be considered transferable in extreme circumstances but are always non-refundable (subject to 10. above).

14. ABANDONMENT. The Company reserves the right to abandon an event in the case of dangerous track conditions or for any other reason beyond The Company’s control.
15. The Company acts only as a booking agent for the venue you have selected and has no responsibility whatsoever for the running of the meeting, the performance of the karts, the behaviour of the staff or any other member of the public that may be present at your event. Should you have any dispute over the running of your event, eligibility of drivers taking part or any incident that you feel may warrant a request for a refund of monies paid then you must raise this with the staff at the venue on the day of your reservation. If you choose to leave the venue without resolving the issue it will be deemed that you are satisfied with all aspects of the reservation and you will have no claim over The Company, its sub-contractors, servants, agents or employees.
