You hereby acknowledge that you have read and understand the contents hereof, that you have been advised of your right to consult with a lawyer, and that you agree to the terms and conditions provided herein as binding on you, your personal and legal representatives, heirs, next of kin and successors. 

The Individual is granted permission to enter Yas Marina Circuit (the “Circuit”) to participate in the Experience noted above (the “Experience”), on the terms and conditions specified in this Waiver & Indemnity which the Individual has read, understood and agrees to comply with at all times and with respect to all aspects of the Individual’s presence at and use of the Circuit. Nothing in this Waiver & Indemnity grants to the Individual a right to use the Circuit on any other basis.

The Individual declares that he/she is physically capable of participating in the Experience. The Individual understands that should he/she, at any time during the Experience suffer from any disability or condition whether permanent, temporary or otherwise which is likely to affect or impair any ability to understand and respond to instructions or control the vehicle and/or in any way represents a danger to him/herself or to other persons, the Individual shall immediately withdraw from participation in the Experience.

The Individual understands, accepts, acknowledges and agrees that he/she is solely responsible for his/her actions and that ADMM, its officers, employees, agents, affiliates, associated companies, sponsors and/or medical advisors accept no responsibility for any injury or illness that the Individual may suffer as a result of its participation in the Experience.  

The Individual agrees to defend, protect, release, hold harmless and indemnify ADMM and any governmental entity, authority, department, section or division of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi and each of their respective directors, officers, volunteers, employees, agents, subcontractors, representatives (each an “Indemnified Party” and collectively, the “Indemnified Parties”), from and against all costs (including, without limitation, attorney’s fees and other legal and professional costs, fees and expenses), fees, expenses, liabilities, loss, damages, suits, causes of action, demands, claims or proceedings whatsoever (each a “Claim” and collectively, “Claims”) when arising out of and/or incidental to any of the following: (a) all injuries, deaths, accidents, damages, loss and/or illnesses to the driver, each and every passenger and/or any third party, including, but not limited to all persons working for or on behalf of any Indemnified Party and all attendees at the Circuit and/or any third party/parties; (b) any breach or non-compliance with or non-performance of any obligations under this Waiver & Indemnity, including, but not limited to, third party claims and losses or monies due to negligence, dishonesty or fraud; (c) loss of property and/or damage to any property belonging to the driver, any passenger and/or any third party, including, but not limited to, any vehicle (whether or not owned by the driver, any passenger(s) and/or any third party), damage to the Circuit, all persons working for or on behalf of any Indemnified Party, all attendees at the Circuit and/or any third party/parties.

The Individual irrevocably and unconditionally agrees: (a) not to, and to procure that no person or entity for or on its behalf will, make any Claim against any of the Indemnified Parties in respect of or in connection with: (i) the use of the Circuit; (ii) the subject of this Waiver & Indemnity; and (iii) any and all issues arising directly or indirectly in relation thereto.  To the extent that any such Claim exists or may exist, the Individual hereby irrevocably waives any Claim and releases and discharges each of the Indemnified Parties from any such Claim.

The Individual understands, acknowledges and agrees that: (a) none of the Indemnified Parties shall be liable for any indirect, consequential, special and/or punitive loss of any kind whatsoever when arising out of, associated with or incidental to the Experience or this Waiver & Indemnity; and (b) this Waiver & Indemnity has been freely and fairly entered into and no presumption or burden of proof will arise favouring or disfavouring any Party because of the authorship of any provision of this Waiver & Indemnity.

The Individual undertakes, at ADMM’s request and the Individual’s own cost and expense, to sign all documents and to execute all other acts, which may be necessary to give full effect to this Waiver & Indemnity.

This Waiver & Indemnity shall be governed by and construed, performed, and enforced in all respects in accordance with the laws of Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, and the Federal Laws of the United Arab Emirates, without giving effect to the principles of conflicts of laws.

ADMM shall not be deemed to have waived any provision of these Terms and Conditions unless such a waiver is in writing and is signed by ADMM.  A failure by ADMM at any time to exercise any rights hereunder shall not constitute a waiver of such rights at any another time.

The Parties agree that any and all disputes arising from the interpretation, implementation or termination of this Waiver & Indemnity herein shall be referred to and exclusively settled by the courts of Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

Each of the provisions of these Terms and Conditions is severable from the other(s). If any term of this Waiver & Indemnity is or becomes illegal, invalid or unenforceable in accordance with the laws of any relevant jurisdiction, shall not affect the legality, validity or enforceability of any other term of this Waiver & Indemnity.

This Waiver & Indemnity contains the whole agreement between the Individual and ADMM and supersedes all previous agreements between the Individual and ADMM. The Individual acknowledges that in entering into this Waiver & Indemnity it has not relied on any representation, warranty, collateral contract or other assurance made by or on behalf of any other Party before the date of this Waiver & Indemnity.  The Individual waives all rights and remedies which would otherwise be legally available to it in respect of any such representation, warranty, collateral contract or other assurance.

The Individual understands and acknowledges that: 

(a)        this Waiver & Indemnity could give rise to liability on the part of the Individual for causing injury to him/herself and/or other persons at the Circuit and for property damage.  Furthermore, the Individual understands that the Individual may procure insurance coverage at the Individual’s own initiative (and is strongly advised by ADMM to do so), for any such injury and/or damage the Individual may cause; and

(b)        Any insurance procured and maintained by ADMM for the purpose of covering vehicles, persons present at the Circuit and premises thereof is for the sole benefit and interest of ADMM. 

The Individual shall comply with the instructions of ADMM at all times.  Signals to vehicles may be given by International Code Flag Signals and the Individual is responsible for familiarising him/herself, understanding and complying therewith.  If the Individual fails to obey any of the signals and/or instructions given by ADMM, ADMM shall be entitled to suspend participation in the Experience.

ADMM provides such marshalling and emergency services as it shall deem appropriate in its absolute and sole discretion and save when otherwise agreed upon, permission to use the Circuit, does not cover the provision of timekeepers, additional fire or medical services.  The Individual must make its own arrangements for such services if and when required.  In the event of medical or fire services being summoned in an emergency when specific arrangements for their attendance have not been made, the cost thereof shall be defrayed by the Individual whether such service has been called by the Circuit staff, a third party, the Individual or its employees, representatives, volunteers and/or contractors.

ADMM operates and maintains the Circuit and support facilities and services in accordance with such standards as it deems appropriate from time to time. This Waiver & Indemnity shall not be deemed to imply any warranty or undertaking by any of the indemnified parties or otherwise that the nature or physical condition of the circuit and the provisions of marshals, fire, or medical services and emergency services (if any) are suitable for the specific use contemplated by the Individual and the Individual must first satisfy itself as to the safety and suitability in all respects of the Circuit and such services before proceeding with participation in the Experience.
