Track Bike Insurance

I am sure I read somewhere that Bennetts were doing track bike insurance for theft of the bike from home and cover during transport to a track (but not while riding) for 99 a year. Did I imagine it or has anyone else heard of it?

Never heard of it to be honest, maybe give em a ring?

Sounds pretty reasonable though.

I'd be amazed, at 99 they may as well give it away, with the amount of bikes going missing at trackdays and from hotel car parks they are a far greater risk than a 99 premium, probably costs them a third of that to issue the policy !!!!

Not heard of that but would be interested to know. Best deal I could find for 3500 cover was 183 with competition car insurance..

There's an outfit in Nottingham insure my bike for transport, accidental damage, theft etc. Costs me around 300 quid for 30k cover. Both Logyk and I have used them. you need to supply a fair bit of evidence to prove what you are insuring tho.

Will try to dig out the details if anyone wants them.

I believe Bennetts offer a policy for 99, but as far as I know it's for off-road bikes only. Probably worth giving them a call though as the replacement cost of bikes/ risk is comaprable to the average trackday bike, ie. between 2k-5k.

Another option that might be worth looking into is ' bikers home insurance ' from MCE. They claim to be " the only home insurance policy that covers your bikes, riding gear & helmets ", offering " free laid up fire & theft insurance " with their policies. I've not used them, just seen their adverts in a mag. Their phone No is 0870 420 7520
