Track Insurance

After seeing a picture of a new corvette which had an unfortunate meeting with a wall at a local track day event, I have always wondered what you could do to best protect your car during such events. MotorTrend has reported that the American Collectors Insurance has decided to start covering cars who are involved in driver education courses. I always thought this would be a good idea for insurance companies to add some kind of coverage for accidents at a track day. This measure however only seems to cover driver education courses and not your normal weekend autocross. Maybe an insurance company could take a marketing spin and attract sports car enthusiasts by giving them safe driver bonuses because they are racing in the proper places and not on the road.
