The local track here is up for lease for the 2009 year, and I have been looking into leasing it, maybe not promoting any races but definately having it open for practice. Does anyone know the requirements on insurance coverage for a mx park?

Seems like the best idea would be to contact the people that could offer you an accurate quote. Call the insurance company...anything posted on here is just speculation since we don't know your situation, location, etc.

Good luck though, and do keep up posted!!! :bonk: :bonk:

That is my plan as of right now, today we are practicing there so I am going to talk to the present lessor and find out what he is paying what is covered and the stipulations by the lessee. Will keep y'all posted though, anyone with knowledge on this please do post any input will help! :bonk:

Maybe talk to another track owner/operator in the area. He might
consider you potential competition for his track,and not want to talk.
Then again,he might consider you an ally for growth in the sport,or a
race series partner,and tell you all you need to know.

I don't know about the insurance cost, but I do know you will make a hell of a lot more money promoting races then just having practice, it will consume a lot more time though.

i am a member of a ama district 14 motocross track and we pay for race days right around $1200 for twelve hours. If you dont have a ama charter insurance would be alot more.

I heard our local track owner pays around $10,000 a year for his facility but he also has sand drags, sand volleyball, camping, tuff mudder type events and large bike fests with major bands and booze.

That's about right for a busy track in Texas.

K&K Insurance does the majority of the track out there. I am a broker in CA and am licensed in CA, NV, NM, OR, and AZ. If you are in one of those states I can help, if not you will have to contact K&K and they can give you the contact info of an appointed broker in your area.

What kind of $$ would an average track pull in per year, before expenses? Are you looking to make a profit or just keep the track running?

the only reason the owner of our track profits is because the club members do all the work. He pays for the fuel and other supplies and the club handles everything else. Track prep, mowing, putting up fence, signs, picking up trash, collect gate fees ect. I know it seems stupid to pay $200 a year then have to do all the work but most of us are just happy to have a local track.

I agree. I was wondering if that's why mxracer was doing it - basically to keep the track going, or if he figures on turning a profit as well.
