Rock Crawling is an inherently dangerous sport. Each competitor assumes that risk when he or she participates in an event. The risk of serious injury or death cannot be eliminated and, in fact, will always be present at a high level. Competitors are urged to advise their spouses and next of kin, if any, of this fact. By competing, all competitors, both spotter and driver, agree to the following.
In consideration of being permitted to participate in any event sponsored, promoted, or directed by W.E.Rock Events, LLC, World Extreme Rock Crawling Championship Series, the competitor for himself/herself, his/her personal representatives, heirs, and next of kin, hereby releases the entity, and their respective officers, directors, promoters, sponsors, employees, agents and volunteers (“releasees”) of all liability to the competitor, whether caused by negligent act or omission of releasees or otherwise, while the undersigned is for any purpose participating in such event. It is fully understood by each of the competitors that there is some inherent risk associated with this event, including damage to vehicles and injury or death to the individual or others.
In addition, the competitor agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the releasees from any loss, liability, damage, or cost they incur due to such participation by the competitor, whether caused by releasees’ negligence or otherwise, and agrees to assume full responsibility and risk for bodily injury, death, or property damage from releasees’ negligence or otherwise while the competitor is participating in this event.
W.E.ROCK has taken several years to compile information using the input from our current builders, outside resources, professional engineers, and W.E.ROCK competitors. These new rules are in line with the majority of competition vehicles now competing in W.E.ROCK International events. It is not W.E.ROCK’s intent to eliminate anyone from competing, but just the opposite. It is our goal to continually uphold the highest standards of safety possible for our customers. Changes are always met with resistance; however, without them, progress will never happen. Please keep the big picture in mind–safety!
Each competitor acknowledges and represents the following while competing:
1 – That he or she has read the foregoing release and waiver of liability and indemnity agreement. 2 – That he or she does at all times, while riding in a vehicle participating in an event, wear his or her respective safety harness and helmet.
3 – That the owner/driver certifies that he or she has inspected this vehicle and that the same certifies it to be in proper mechanical condition for participation in rockcrawling competition.
4 – That the owner/driver has informed himself/herself about the event, either by prior participation or by investigation into the sport and especially W.E.Rock events.
5 – That the driver or any other person(s) in a vehicle participating in any W.E.Rock event, may choose to bypass any obstacle and, therefore, assumes all risk and liability, as indicated above.
Please Be Aware:
Although safety is generally everyone’s concern and certainly the highest priority of W.E.Rock, the ultimate responsibility rests on the competitors. Competitors can, at any time, choose to bypass any obstacle or area where they feel uncomfortable or unsafe driving.
