ESCH will cancel/reschedule any drive-experience if severe thunderstorms, flooding, gale-force winds, hail or temperatures exceeding 35 deg Celsius are predicted. Many Exotics are made for cooler climatic conditions and designed to protect the mechanical components of the vehicle, and will therefore shut down ancillary and or non essential items to protect the vehicle under extreme conditions.

Comprehensive insurance is provided for all Escorted Drive-Day guests during the experience, however a maximum insurance excess (deductible) of USD$10,000 applies if you are responsible for causing an accident and any resulting damage. This insurance-excess may be reduced to half the Insurance excess by payment of an additional fee. Please note that guests are not required to provide a bond in order to participate.
