Liability

1.2.1. “The price of man in motion is the occasional collision.” – Carol Smith Racing is an inherently dangerous sport. As such, it is every attendee’s responsibility to understand and accept this inherent level of risk. While Real Time Attack will make all efforts to provide a safe and secure environment for all attendees, risk can only be mitigated and never completely removed.


Therefore, in no way does Real Time Attack guarantee or imply that death, injury or financial loss will not occur as a result of attendance or participation. 1.2.2. It is solely the responsibility of each competitor to ensure and monitor the safety and roadworthiness of his/her vehicle or vehicles.

Real Time Attack officials present at the event are the final deciding authority regarding the enforcement, interpretation and if deemed necessary, modification of these rules. 1.3.3. The Real Time Attack Rules and Regulations are intended to ensure that events are conducted in a manner that is as fair as possible for all competitors and consistent with the need for prompt and final determination of competition outcomes. On occasion, circumstances will be presented that are either unforeseen or are otherwise extraordinary, in which strict application of these regulations may contradict this intent. In such circumstances, Real Time Attack officials will be the determining authority. Every effort will be made to honor the spirit and intent of the competition to provide the most equitable and legitimate determinations and interpretations.
