D. I agree to have the “Crescent Classic” logo and official Event sponsors’ stickers attached to my vehicle (and any support vehicle if Crescent Classic so requires) during the entire Event. I am not entitled to deface, cover up, or otherwise obscure such stickers, and shall endeavor to keep them clean and visible at all times. Stickers are non-permanent and easily removable without damaging vehicle finishes. Crescent Classic will therefore not be responsible for claims for damage to vehicle finishes as a result of the application or removal of such stickers.

Subject to obtaining Crescent Classic’s prior written consent as to the identity of your personal sponsor(s) (up to a maximum of 2 personal sponsors), you will be entitled to place your own sponsor’s names, marks, and/or logos in 2 designated positions only on both your vehicle, your support vehicle, and/or your clothing, provided that your sponsor/sponsors does not/do not compete or conflict with Crescent Classic’s official sponsors. Crescent Classic shall be entitled to determine the size and location of your sponsor’s/sponsors’ names, marks, and/or logos on your vehicle, support vehicle, and/or clothing.

Crescent Classic reserves the right to refuse unauthorized sponsored vehicles or individuals entry to the Event. Logos must be supplied in vector EPS Format to the Events official sticker supplier for manufacture. Stickers manufactured elsewhere will not be accepted. If you arrive at or attempt to participate in the Event with your vehicle, support vehicle, and/or clothing displaying the branding of a sponsor that has not been authorized by Crescent Classic or FCA, you will be required to remove such branding from your vehicle, support vehicle, and/or clothing, failing which you shall be refused access to and participation in the Event (and you shall not be entitled to a refund of your entry fee).

I must operate my vehicle in a safe manner and with proper courtesy to other participants and the public. I understand that ANYONE caught racing or violating any other motor vehicle or traffic laws during Crescent Classic will be immediately disqualified from further participation in the Event, and will not be entitled to any refund of entry fees or other payments.
G. I must comply with all applicable laws and regulations throughout the course of the Event, including, without limitation, all laws of the road, laws relating to the fitness of my vehicle, and laws relating to possession and importation of prohibited and/or illegal substances, illegal immigrants,

If I become the victim of an accident, I will hold Crescent Classic, its organizers and sponsors, Ferrari Club of America, its officers, directors, employees, and agents harmless from any liability or negligent actions that may arise in relation to any search and rescue, stabilization, evacuation, transportation, and emergency care I receive while aid resources are sought or rendered.

I realize that, as a result, I may be engaging in activities that involve risk of serious injury, including permanent disability, paralysis and death, property damage, and other losses which might result not only from my own action, inaction or negligence, but the action, inaction, or negligence of others, the circumstances of the Event and other occurrences. By way of example only, and without limitation, these dangers may include the following:
A. Dangerous and hazardous road conditions;
B. Dangers of general road and off-road driving;

I. Potential for collision with pedestrians, vehicles, other participants and fixed or moving objects;
J. Travel to and from the Event and the Event facilities

II. WAIVER AND RELEASE OF LIABILITY. I acknowledge that no amount of care, caution, instruction, or expertise can eliminate the risks and dangers of participating in the Event. I therefore voluntarily agree to and do hereby waive and release any and all claims, and all of my right to assert legal demands, including claims for damages, injuries, death, costs, fees, and other losses that I now have or may at any time have in the future, against Crescent Classic/Ferrari Club of America including, without limitation, any other person or entity providing monetary, property or other support for the Event and any and all of their respective past, current, or future shareholders, members, officers, directors, employees, affiliates, volunteers, organizers, agents, sponsors, officials, attorneys, or other representatives (the Promoter, Crescent Classic, Ferrari Club of America and the other persons and entities herein named or specified are herein referred to as the “Releasees”), that arise from or relate in any way to the Event, my participation in the Event, or the acts or omissions of others involved in the Event. I understand and agree that this includes claims that do not exist now but arise in the future, claims based on occurrences taking place in the future, and claims that relate to occurrences that took place despite reasonable efforts of the Releasees and even though I have adhered to the Code of Conduct. I UNDERSTAND THAT BY AGREEING TO THESE PROVISIONS, I AM GIVING UP CERTAIN LEGAL RIGHTS THAT MIGHT EXIST IF I DID NOT AGREE TO THIS THIS DOCUMENT WHEN I REGISTERED for CRESCENT CLASSIC.
III. CODE OF CONDUCT AND ASSURANCES. I agree that the Promoter has taken significant efforts to develop a Code of Conduct (“Code”) for the Event, which is attached to this Agreement, in order to ensure that the Event is properly conducted. I have fully read and understand each of the provisions of the Code, and I agree that at all times I will follow each and every requirement of the Code. I agree to keep a copy of the Code of Conduct with me at all times during the Event. If I am unable or unwilling to follow the Code, I agree not to sign this Agreement or participate in the Event. I agree that the Promoter may, at any time, with or without notice, in its sole discretion, disqualify me from the Event and take any other steps deemed necessary, including preventing me from attending or observing the Event or having contact with other Event participants or the Promoter, should I violate any provision of the Code, breach any term of this Agreement, or otherwise take any actions that the Promoter deems to be illegal, dangerous, or a threat to the health or safety of anyone.
IV. INDEMNIFICATION AND DAMAGES. I agree to indemnify, defend, and hold the Releasees harmless from any and all claims, demands, damages, judgment costs (including attorney’s fees), or other matters asserted by a third party relating to or arising from my failure to adhere to the Code or any other act of negligence or willful conduct on my part; I AGREE THAT, SHOULD I HAVE ANY LEGAL CLAIM FOR DAMAGES THAT IS NOT RELEASED BY THIS AGREEMENT, THE RELEASEES’ AGGREGATE MAXIMUM FINANCIAL LIABILITY TO ME ARISING FROM SUCH CLAIM WILL BE EQUAL TO THE ENTRY FEE I HAVE PAID TO BE A PARTICIPANT IN THE EVENT. THE FOREGOING SENTENCE SETS FORTH MY SOLE LEGAL REMEDY AGAINST THE RELEASEES IN CONNECTION WITH THIS EVENT.
