If a participant should happen to be injured during an event, then the inclusion of participant’s entry in this event is deemed to be an express consent to any medical treatment, rescue, conveyance to hospital or other emergency facility. All these initiatives shall be undertaken by personnel provided by the organizer, to the best of their ability and assessment of the condition of the participant.

Participants shall be required to assume all costs associated therewith, provided such costs are not covered by other insurance agreements. Therefore, participants waive their right, and the right of any legal successor, and also for any insurance company with which they may possibly have established a supplemental insurance agreement, to any and all direct or indirect claims for compensation of damages against the event organizer, their functionaries or organizers or route managers, and to any other person of the association involved with the event (including all functionaries and for agencies or organizations granting approvals for the event) and to other applicants and drivers, all known generically as “parties.” By agreeing to enter this event, the participants give their unconditional and irrevocable waiver to all rights, legal remedies, claims, demands, actions and/or proceedings which might be pursued by themselves or in their name against the “parties.” These items in connection with injuries, losses, damages, expenses and/or outlays (including attorney fees) which accrue to the participants due to an incident or accident occurring within the scope of this event.

By agreeing to enter this event, participants give their irrevocable consent that they shall henceforth and forever hold the “parties” harmless and not liable for any such losses. By agreeing to enter this event, participants declare that they understand the complete meaning and effect of these declarations and agreements, that they enter into these obligations at their own free will and thus irrevocably waive any legal remedy owing to damages against the “parties,” to the extent provided under Austrian law.

Therefore the participants waive for themselves and for their legal successors any and all claims involving damages of any kind whatsoever, including those associated with the typical risks involved in sports, in particular to all typical and foreseeable damages, against the “parties,” meaning in particular against the event organizer, organizer’s functionaries and/or organizers or route managers, and/or against the agencies or organizations that provide permits for this event. The same also applies to an event of minor negligence by the “parties.“

4.1. ARBITRATION AGREEMENT

Arbitration Agreement for the Call for Entries:

a) All disputes arising from this agreement and for damages (personal, material or asset damages) between the participants and the organizer and organizer, and also their functionaries occurring in connection with this motor sports event, shall be conclusively decided by a court of arbitration, and outside of the ordinary court system.

b) The court of arbitration consists of three judges, one presiding judge and two assistants. The presiding judge must be a licensed attorney or former attorney and experienced in questions of liability in connection with motor sports.

c) Each party shall appoint an assistant judge within two weeks after giving notice of intent to open an arbitration dispute. If the dispute is made pending by several plaintiffs or if the dispute is directed against several defendants, then the appointment of the arbitration judge shall occur by agreement among the parties to the dispute. The assistant judges shall select the presiding judge. If they cannot agree on the appointment of the presiding judge within two weeks, then the presiding judge shall be named by the president of the Vienna Chamber of Attorneys upon petition of one assistant judge, by citing item b). By mutual agreement of the assistant judges, the presiding judge appointed in this manner may be replaced at any time by another presiding judge.

d) If one party does not appoint an assistant judge within two weeks after receipt of a written request by the opposing party, or if several parties to the dispute cannot agree on an assistant judge within this time schedule, then the assistant judge shall be named by the president of the Vienna Chamber of Attorneys upon petition of the other party. The same also applies then one assistant judge departs the office and the relevant party does not appoint a successor within two weeks.

e) If an arbitration judge does not accept the office, refuses to act or unreasonably delays the proceedings or becomes incapable of acting, then the procedure stated above shall apply for replacement of that judge. The relevant arbitration judge shall be dismissed at the same time.

f) The arbitration court basically shall be free to structure the proceedings in conformance with the subsidiary legal provisions. The arbitration court meets in Vienna. The arbitration court can determine the circumstances of the case and collect evidence needed to settle the matter, without application.

g) The arbitration court’s decision shall be made by simple majority. The arbitration decision shall be thoroughly substantiated. The arbitration court shall also decide about the cost apportionment, both of expenses for the arbitration proceedings and also for legal representation. The arbitration judges shall be compensated according to the provisions of the Austrian Attorney Rate Schedule.

h) Through the exclusion of the standard court system, the arbitration court is also entitled to issue temporary injunctions, provided the opponent is first given opportunity for a hearing. A temporary injunction can also be lifted upon petition, given a significant change to circumstances.

i) The Sports jurisdiction shall remain unaffected by this arbitration agreement.
