Insurance

TPL Insurance = included

With WHEELTORQUE, the Third Party Liability (TPL) insurance is included in your enrolment price.

Some circuits require a license. The only reason for this is that there is a TPL insurance included in it.

Because we provide for all participants - included in the price - such a TPL insurance, a license is not requested during our events and yet you are fully okay.

European Health Insurance Card

(we will not verify this, it 's only for your own comfort / safety)

 

VERY IMPORTANT: make sure to have your "European Health Insurance Card" (EHIC) with you. By showing this card, people know - in the domain of health (and injury) insurance - that you're completely covered in your own country and that every other country, that is a member of the European Union, has to give you all the needed care.If you haven't obtained your card from your health care insurance, than :

  • apply for a card immediately;

  • if you cannot receive it in time, ask them to e-mail to you a "Provisional replacement certificate for the European Health Insurance Card" (= 1 page, and this can be done immediately);

A list of "Dangerous sports" that are excluded from "urgent medical care abroad". Usually, "racing with car / motorcycle / outboard engines" is listed. But as we do not "race", our activity is not excluded from any treatment. Check if this is also the case with your insurance, and if it is not, just be sure to get an insurance yourself.

 

WHEELTORQUE has not only a very good insurance as an organiser, but insures also - on every event - all participants with a good TPL (= third partie liability) insurance.
