We cannot be held liable for any costs incurred in any of these circumstances.

 

We will try to provide an experience, location or other alternatives wherever possible. In the unlikely event that an alternative cannot or is not offered, a full refund will be available at the discretion of Supercar Drive Days. Similarly, we reserve the right to withdraw supply of a gift without notice due to unavailability or discontinuance of a product line.
