Terms and conditions
1 – Inscritpions for the rides
a. Taking into account of the reservation
A registration is valid for 1 person and 1 motorbike. A contribution of 5 € will be requested for each additional motorbike.
As soon as we receive your payment, an automatic email will be sent to you to confirm your registration.
Payment by credit card is instantaneous as opposed to bank transfer which can take several days.
Payment must be received within 5 days of booking or the booking will be permanently cancelled.
(A payment reminder email will be sent after 3 days).
In the case of a full event, the first payment received will have priority over any other payment.
Please note: unless you have an error in your email address or a network problem, any driver who has not received this confirmation email will be considered as not having registered for the event.
The following are considered invalid :
- Reservations not paid for and not collected 48 hours before the event.
- Reservations for which payment has arrived less than 48 hours before the event (*).
- Grouped bookings with a single payment for which the complete identities and levels have not been provided.
(*) In the case of a late payment, the pilot who arrives at the "Welcome" on the day of the event will be able to claim his reservation by handing over the bank proof of his payment. He will not be included in the registration lists of the day as he does not fall under the general conditions of validity of registration. His/her registration may be effective depending on the availability of places in his/her level group. If he/she is unable to ride, he/she may be given a gift voucher valid for one year.
Any driver who does not show up on the day of the event before 9:00 am at the "Welcome" without having previously notified the organizer, will have his registration cancelled without any possibility of reimbursement or carry-over in the kitty. His/her place will then be available for the requests of the day.
Conditions of cancellation of a paid reservation :
- Up to 20 days before the event
Cancellation possible by email according to 3 options:
- Postponement to an identical event that is not full,
- Postponement in the kitty exempted from 30 € for administrative costs,
- Possible replacement by a rider of the same level.
- Less than 20 days before the event
No cancellation or postponement possible but possible replacement by a rider of the same level:
- You find a replacement. You will then have to provide us with his contact details in order to proceed with the modification of the registration. To do so, he/she must have created a profile on our website. This person will arrange the payment with you.
- We find a replacement. We will proceed to the modification of the registration and we will pay you the amount of the registration in your kitty with an administrative withdrawal of 30€.
- Covid-19: MRS cannot be held responsible for cancellations due to quarantine or border closures, there will be no refunds.
- As an alternative to these conditions and at least one month before the ride, a cancellation/interruption insurance can be taken out with our insurance partner Assuracing.
d. Waiting list
When an event is full, it is possible to register on the waiting list.
If a place becomes available, a replacement will be found according to the following criteria :
- the date of the reservation,
- the level sought,
- the amount available in the kitty for a "last day" replacement.
Participation is not guaranteed, the Mertens Riding School is the only authority that has the power to decide on the choice of replacement.
The successful reservist will receive a payment notice or will be automatically enrolled if the requested amount is available in his/her kitty.
He/she will then receive a notice of confirmation of registration by e-mail.
Any request to cancel this registration will not be accepted.
However, it will be possible to register on the spot, depending on availability on the day and subject to payment of the pre-sale rate plus a €20 administration fee.
Applicants will be received in the order of their arrival.
e. Groups by level of experience or pace
Four level groups are formed according to your personal criteria. The number of groups can be modified according to the number of participants.
A re-enactment is planned for the afternoon. Any pilot invited to change group will have to comply with this request or be denied access to the track.
In any case, if no level information is known by the Mertens Riding School, the rider will be placed in the slowest group.
f. Noise pollution
The participant commits himself to respect the sound limit standards imposed by the circuit. The original exhaust system is required, otherwise a "dB killer" must be fitted. The noise standards are listed on the circuit websites. (https://www.circuit-mettet.be, http://www.spa-francorchamps.be)
As of 01/01/2020, the limits of 94dB static and 101dB dynamic are generally applicable.
Complete engine silence must be observed before 9 a.m., from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. and after 6 p.m., including in the paddock.
The organiser may exclude at any time a participant who presents a motorbike with technical defects (tyres, brakes, noise, oil leaks, etc.) without any refund or carry-over in the prize fund.
