INSURANCE WHILE COMPETING & TRAVELLING OVERSEAS


Carrolls Motorsport Insurance, based out of London, are a dedicated sector of a traditional Lloyd’s Insurance Broker offering Karting specific products.

The Motorsport division is headed up by James Blair, a former Kiwi Karter himself with a wealth of experience in Motorsport and Insurance.

In 2016, James was involved in a horrifying crash at the Las Vegas Super Nationals and suffered a; broken neck, severe concussion, chipped teeth, dislocated shoulder, broken hand, broken rib, broken leg (3 places), broken foot and a Third Degree burn from the exhaust pipe.

Along with the laundry list of injuries, he was also issued a hospital bill of USD 68,903.25 – not covered by standard travel insurance upon review of the policy wording.

Fast forward 5 years, when James took over the Motorsport department at Carrolls, it was a top priority to offer cover to New Zealand’s overseas Karters.

This cover, as standard, includes £100,000 of Medical Expenses and repatriation cover. Ensuring no driver or parent suffers the same experience in an already highly stressful time, should something happen to them whilst competing abroad.

James has negotiated with London Insurers a fixed price for all Kiwis competing overseas, at £500 per trip.
