...people should have to take an advanced driving course when they buy high performance cars.


See these people all the time on the road, lots of money but no experience.

Insurance Fraud

July 7 2012, 10:01 PM 

Back when I was heavily involved with all things Miata, I used to organize performance driving schools for our club. I'd contract with a pro-school, and we would have the entire staff work with us all weekend. A lot of fun, and a LOT of track time. We were very careful to make sure it was always called a "driving school" for insurance reasons. Most insurance companies will cover an accident if it happened during such a scheme. Most, not all...

We had one guy show up to one of the events that thought himself a real hot-shot, and made little use of the instructors, just running laps when he could. He proceeded to ignore a significant warning about what to do if you slide off the track, lost control and stuffed his car into a drainage ditch which was so far from the actual racing run-off area that it proved his total lack of competence. He decides to have the car towed off the premises and on to a nearby road, then claimed to his insurance company that it was crashed there. I should add that he showed up at the track the next day with a brand new Miata he bought the evening before!! His wrecked car wasnt even cold yet!! Found out later that someone he had pissed off for some reason (he was a real a$$hole and made a lot of enemies) called the insurance company and told them the truth (he had photos of the crash on the track!). Last anyone heard of him, he was being sued.
