EPIC RALLY: TERMS AND CONDITIONS

This is the Small Print that matters so please read it …!

Epic Rally is not a competitive event

  • Epic Rally event participants must not enter into the competition (i.e race or time trial) with other rally participants or other road users and must drive with appropriate care and attention for the safety of themselves and other road users at all times, with consideration for local regulations, road conditions and weather. Any participants who do not comply with these requirements will be subject to immediate removal from the event, without a refund.

Age Restrictions

  • All participants (drivers and passengers) must be a minimum of 18 years old

Event Entry Fees

  • To book a place on an Epic Rally event, a confirmed deposit will need to be paid by the invoiced dates agreed and full payment balance paid no later than 90 days prior to the start date of the event. If a reservation is made within the 90-day deadline then full payment will be required at the time of the booking. Please note that deposits and entry fees are non-refundable unless specific cancellation criteria apply (please see Cancellations below)
  • Entry fees will include quality hotel accommodation (usually in a twin or double room), breakfast, overnight parking, ferry and/or Euro Tunnel crossings, and a driver information pack. Please note that if pre-arranged ferry/tunnel crossings are missed it will be the responsibility of the participant to pay any extra charges incurred.
  • Entry fees unless specifically stated will not include fuel, tolls, lunch/evening meals, drink, fines, and other personal expenses. All personal expenses are the responsibility of the participant and any unpaid charges will be invoiced by Epic Rally, with payment due within seven days.

Cancellations

  • Epic Rally event organisers reserve the right to change or cancel part, or all, of the planned event at any time and under any circumstances.
  • Epic Rally will make financial commitments based on receipt of deposits and full event payments that are usually non-refundable. Therefore, if participants for any reason cancel the booking prior to the event, the following charges apply:
  • Cancellation before 90-day deadline to event start: 50% of full event costs payable
  • Cancellation after 90 days deadline to event start: 100% of full event costs payable
  • Participants that have paid a deposit but have failed to pay the full entry fee by a deadline of 70 days prior to the event start will be deemed to have cancelled their entry without refund. Once the event has started, if participants decide that they cannot continue for any reason, the event organisers will not provide refunds or compensation as 100% of full events costs still apply.
  • Epic Rally organisers regret that they cannot accept liability for cancellation of an event due to circumstances out of their control or that could not have been reasonably foreseen or avoided i.e. Force Majeure.
  • If Epic Rally organisers are forced to significantly change or cancel an event for reasons other than Force Majeure (i.e. change or cancellation is reasonably within the event organisers control) they will seek to offer a suitable alternate event or provide full refund of payments made by participants up to the point of cancellation.

Codes of Conduct

If the event organisers become aware of illegal, antisocial or inappropriate behaviour at any time during the event, or there is evidence that participants are driving under the influence of alcohol or other intoxicating substances, Epic Rally reserve the right to terminate participation, without refund. The right to terminate participation without refund by the event organiser also includes any irresponsible, reckless and dangerous driving that either causes, or has the potential to cause, a road traffic accident. Please note that Epic Rally will not be liable for any extra costs incurred by the participant if event participation has to be terminated.
