Wow...I wouldn't have thought you would incur a charge for non-transport either - crazy. It would make me think twice about accepting aide if I was able to think clearly - which, in some instances may not be a good thing. I've been carted back from various turns at different tracks, but never had to pay for a return trip to the paddock.

So did you fill out some paperwork in the ambulance, cuz I'm curious how they may have gotten your info to charge you in the first place?

Perhaps other track day orgs could follow suit if they don't already have a similar policy (Paramedic req'd and no charge for no transport).

Its something I would have never thought of, either...

Charles,

I'm sorry to hear about the $400 and your terrible experience. I was at that track day and remember seeing your crash and stay their motionless for a few minutes - horrible sight!

Here's something to help you and other people out there:

1) RideSmart ($100-135 track day fee) - Ambulance services are free unless transported.

2) LSTD ($140-160 track day fee) - Ambulance services are free unless transported.

3) Same for TMGPs.

4) Same for CMRA.

5) Same for most drag racing tracks i've been to. They only charge if they transport you out of the track to a hospital.

6) Elite Track days ($$ unknown), but after speaking to her - she has a similar policy like Ride Smart.

7) LMS ($190 now?) - You get charged... your an example.

Thus the reason I refure to do private track days.

Again sorry for your loss, I'm just glad your okay!

I should have chimed in earlier - its sad that not alot of track day guys know this...

I appreciate the thought Mo, but to be clear this is not a LMS bashing thread, but simply passing on info about a policy I was unaware of.

I doubt it is specific to LMS, but rather specific to MSRH as I believe the track decides which ambulance service to utilize. I expect they will be there this weekend for the TTD's event and any other events at MSRH.

I absolutely still plan on doing track days at MSRH, though I will likely ride more conservatively than I would otherwise. The lesson I take away from this is no so much whether to accept emergency services in the event of an accident, but rather knowing what it will cost I will be more careful on the track.
