RESTATED RULES AND REGULATIONS

ASPEN RACING AND SPORTS CAR CLUB, LLC

 
 

1.         GENERAL. Terms contained herein which are defined in the Membership Agreement shall have the same meaning as set forth in the Membership Agreement. All references in any of the Membership Documents to “Board of Director” shall mean the Board of Directors of the Company.

 

2.         REGISTRATION AND LIABILITY WAIVER. All Full Members and all guests must sign in and sign the liability waiver from time to time adopted by the Club. All guests must sign every time they enter the Premises. All Full Members must sign only one time per year on behalf of themselves and Family Members. Junior Members must sign one time per year. The Board reserves the right to change the contents of the liability waiver and the number of times such signatures are required from time to time in its sole and absolute discretion.

 

3.         DAMAGE TO CARS AND PROPERTY. Full members are liable for any damage to the Company-owned cars (hereinafter referred to as “Club Cars”), Company-owned go-karts, other Company property or the property of any other person which damage is caused by any Full Member, Family Member and/or each of their guests. Liability of Full Members and Family Members for the aforementioned damage shall be joint and several. Junior Members are liable for any damage caused by them or their guests. There is no “fault” to be found in auto racing. Auto racing is a dangerous sport. The individual sitting in the driver’s seat is solely responsible for damage to the car. If that individual is a guest, the guest’s sponsoring Full Member, Family Member or Junior Member is liable for the damage. The Company shall maintain the price list of parts and labor, which shall be available either upon request or within a reasonable time period thereafter.

 

4.         GO-KARTS AND TRACK. Full Members, Family Members and Junior Members and each of their guests may use the Go-Karts. Go-Karts may be used only on the Go-Kart track and only Company owned Go-Karts shall be used. Nobody under the age of sixteen (16) years shall use any Go-Kart unless actively supervised by an adult over Twenty-One (21) years of age. Such supervising adult shall be physically present at the immediate location of the Go-Kart track at all times while such individual under the age of Sixteen (16) years is using any Go-Kart. Anyone using the Go-Karts, regardless of age, must wear a helmet at all times. Additional rules may be promulgated from time to time by the Board of Directors governing the use of the Go-Kart track at the discretion of the Board.

 

5.                   RULES GOVERNING RACETRACK USE AND PIT AREA.

 

A.                 Full Members, Junior Members, Family Members and each of their guests who are over Sixteen (16) years of age and who possess a current valid driver’s license issued by the state in which they reside may use the Club Cars or other permitted motor-driven vehicles on the racetrack. A “motor-driven vehicle” as used in these Rules and Regulations includes, but is not limited to, motorcycles and automobiles. If there are no special events or scheduled activities or a race taking place on the racetrack, then anybody permitted to operate a motor-driven vehicle on the racetrack pursuant to these Rules and Regulations may do so with no charge for racetrack use, provided that such use does not exceed twenty (20) consecutive minutes. Applicable rates shall be charged when Club Cars are used. So-called “open” days may not be reserved for exclusive use. The foregoing time limitation shall only apply if there is more than one person waiting to use the racetrack. In no event shall any motor-driven vehicles which are not of the same type be operated simultaneously on the racetrack at any time. For example, no motorcycle shall be operated on the racetrack at the same time as a racing automobile and no racing automobile shall be operated on the racetrack at the same time as a non-racing type automobile. No person under the age of Sixteen (16) shall be permitted on the Club property unless accompanied by an adult Twenty-One (21) years of age or older. No guest shall be permitted on Club property unless accompanied by a Member. There shall be no wheel to wheel racing unless it is done in spec racers.

 

B.                 No person shall operate any type of motor-driven vehicle anywhere on the Premises unless such person is over the age of Sixteen (16) and has a valid driver’s license issued by the state in which he or she resides, which license was issued for the type of motor-driven vehicle he or she intends to operate. No person under age Sixteen (16) shall ride as a passenger in any spec racer.

 

C.                 Any person not operating a motor-driven vehicle on the racetrack shall not be permitted in the pit area unless he or she is traveling either to or from the motor-driven vehicle. The tent area is not intended to be included as part of the pit area for purposes of the restriction set forth in the preceding sentence.

7.         CLUB HOURS. The Club is available for use only at specified times. The Board will make reasonable efforts to make the Club available for use at the times and on the dates set forth in the permit and operations plan issued by Pitkin County, Colorado. In no event shall the track be available for use at times or dates which are in excess of that set forth in the County permit, which permit is subject to change by the County. Schedules for non-Member special events may vary and will be posted. During any such events, use of the track and its facilities by Members, Junior Members and Family Members and each of their guests will be prohibited.

 

            8.         PARKING AND TRAILERS. All vehicles on the Premises must be parked in a designated parking area. Prior to storing or otherwise leaving a trailer on the Premises, all Members must request and obtain permission from the Board of Directors, which permission the Board may grant or deny in its sole and absolute discretion. Any such permission granted by the Board is revocable at any time by the Board without cause or prior notice. No trailer may be stored anywhere on the Premises except in the location specifically designated by the Board. Any trailer left on the Premises without the Board’s prior permission is subject to removal in the Board’s discretion at the sole cost and expense of the trailer owner. All Members, for themselves, their heirs, executors and assigns, and for any and all guests of Members hereby release, indemnify and hold the Company and/or Owner, their officers, directors, shareholders, partners, manager, Members and agents harmless from and against all claims for damage to or loss of property in or about the Premises arising out of or any way connected with the storage and/or removal of any trailer from the Premises.
