8.3  Summary of your legal rights. We are under a legal duty to supply services that are in conformity with this contract. Nothing in these terms will affect your statutory rights.

  1. Price and payment

9.1  Where to find the price for the services. The price of the services (which includes VAT) will be the price as set out on our website. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the services advised to you is correct.

9.2  We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT. If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the services we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the services in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.

9.3  When you must pay and how you must pay. We accept payment by Stripe only. You must pay the full balance of the price at least 14 days prior to the event, unless you have ordered the services in the 14 days leading up to the event in which case you must pay on the date on which you place your order. You will be unable to participate in the event if payment has not been made when due.

9.4  We can charge interest if you pay late. If you do not make any payment to us by the due date we may charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of 3% a year above the base lending rate of Bank of England from time to time. This interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. You must pay us this interest together with any overdue amount.

9.5  What to do if you think an invoice is wrong. If you think an invoice is wrong, please contact us promptly to let us know. You will not have to pay any interest until the dispute is resolved. Once the dispute is resolved we will charge you interest on correctly invoiced sums from the original due date.

  1. Your responsibility for loss or damage caused by you & our responsibility for loss or damage suffered by you.

10.1  Disclaimer of Liability. You acknowledge that karting is a dangerous sport and accept the inherent risks involved in participating in the event. We will ask you/ the driver to sign a disclaimer of liability accepting this risk.

10.2  Your liability.

(a)  The legal responsibility for any damage to the participant’s allocated kart and subsequent financial liability of the same to TKZ remains entirely with you/the participant irrespective of the cause of the damage while the kart was under control of the participant.


(b)  You are responsible for ensuring that the kart is returned in the condition in which we provided it in, subject to fair wear and tear. Fair wear and tear means “ordinary wear due to reasonable use” as might be expected during a karting event. You will be responsible to us, to the extent allowed under applicable law, for any additional damage to the kart unless such damage is caused by us.


(c)  Damage Policy. Where a kart incurs damage that the Event Manager deems to be your responsibility as you were in control of the kart at the time the damage was incurred, we will charge you in line with the damage matrix outlined in the Sporting Regulations and you will be required to make payment to us immediately.


(d) Where a kart is damaged beyond further use at an event due to accident damage as a result of driving standards, TKZ have no liability to provide a replacement kart or a refund to the responsible participant.


(e) If a spare kart is not available for any participant sharing the kart that has been damaged , the participant who was in control of the kart during the accident that damaged the kart beyond further use will be liable for the costs associated with any refunds which may result.

10.3  Insurance. We strongly recommend that you take out personal injury insurance to cover you and your party if a member of your party is injured during an event.

10.4  We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process. If your kart suffers a failure or breakdown, we will not be responsible where you cannot participate in any part of the event as a result. We will attempt to repair your kart or provide you with a replacement kart (if available) and to get you back on the track as soon as reasonably possible but we cannot guarantee that this will be possible. If we are unable to repair or replace the kart and the participant is unable to participate in a significant part of the day we may offer reasonable compensation in our discretion.

10.5  We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the services.

  1. How we may use your personal information

11.1 How we may use your personal information. We will only use your personal information as set out in our Privacy Policy. You may request a copy of our privacy policy from customer services.

  1. Other important terms

12.1  We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation.

12.2  You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms to another person if we agree to this in writing which is entirely at our discretion.

12.3  This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms

12.4  Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.

12.5  If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the services, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.

12.6  These terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the services in the English courts. If you live in Scotland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the services in either the Scottish or the English courts. If you live in Northern Ireland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the services in either the Northern Irish or the English courts.
