I've been asked to put on a car display for a charity/promo day locally in September. The organiser has also asked if (for a 2 to charity payment) members of the public could be doughnut'd. Another of my mates has put his name forward to put on a motorcycle stunt show on the day.

What I need to know is how do we stand as regards public liability? What authorities need to be informed etc etc.

Where you doing it? Go speak to the local council.. Or tell to organiser to organise it and get it in writen format.

Sounds like a lot of bother, but who really will be having fun?

Oh and speak to someone who has cheap tyres.. better still, put some rubbish ones on first

A lot of 'charity' public events over recent year have had to be canned because of insurance worries. The Bridgwater carnival raises a fortune and the best part of somerset spend the year making the floats but it's almost been cancelled as they needed to raise something daft like 25k insurance.

I can't imagine your personal insurance company would touch you on this one. Lets say you're having a good time burning up your VERY EXPENSIVE rear tyres and the passenger falls out / puts their hand on the back wheel / someone runs out and get s knocked over...

You're looking and a whole world of lawsuits that would make Jacko look innocent. I'm afraid its a sad factor of modern life that people take no personal responsibility for their own actions. If they get hurt by their own stupidity it's your fault for not putting up fences and signs saying '400hp can hurt' :angry: :mad:

If you are going to try to do doughnuts you will have to have an Power lock diff on your car to do them properly. As for 2 a go :angel: due to the time your tires are going to last that does not seam anything like enough :o

I agree - risk too great without insurance and I guess insurance will be inhibitive.
