    Hi
    I would love to hear the answers to these 2 questions I always have, when I watch Rally Racing
    1- when cars crash and damage ir destroy public property and/or private homes....who pays for the repairs, if anyone?
    2- who establishes the table with target speed for each corner? I am shocked at some of the crashes, which obviously were caused by ridiculous speed for the turn, thus cars pile up one after the other.
    This to me would be the equivalent of a golf course showing unrrealistic and over agressive par numbers of certain holes.
    Thanks

    I guess the promoters have to contract some liability cover to be allowed to organise a rally.
    Then all claims for damage are paid by the insurance.

    Entry form for the Targa Newfoundland mentions the entrant’s fee will cover insurance in closed road stages and PL/PD of $5m Cdn.
    Spectacular fun. Folks up there are extremely nice and look forward to the Rally Teams arriving every year..even when they get an unexpected visitor.
