This case has just recently come to my attention and is nearing it first court date. Read the following 3 links on the MSTRC forum. As is the case with any post there is plenty of fluff comments mixed in, but if you read through it becomes very clear what this case involves. If the plaintiff wins this case you might as well hall your racecar to the s****e yard right now. This is definitely one that I will be keeping an eye on.

Under our legal & liability insurance system, anyone must sue in order to collect a dime from track insurance company. If release stands up, all OK. If release doesn't, insurance company must pay. These lawsuits won't end racing, but they will raise the price of insurance. (All racers should have a liability umbrella policy.) If track doesn't have insurance, then anybody is fair game for lawyers. DO NOT RACE AT A TRACK WITHOUT INSURANCE!

The problem in this case is that they are suing another racer as well as the chassis builder. If this sets a precident it would be too dangerous to race or build racecars.

I know that the defendants have already spent over $10k in defense.

Time to buy a dragster or a horse.
