Overland Park, KS (January 12, 2011) - In July 2008, Lockton Affinity and MotorsportReg.com introduced the HPDE Insurance Program. This innovative insurance program offers affordable, single event physical damage insurance for cars used in high-performance driving events at tracks and driving schools throughout the United States. Merging the power of the largest privately-held insurance broker in the world and the largest motorsport event registration service in North America, Lockton and MotorsportReg.com deliver a solution to a critical issue facing event organizers and enthusiasts involved in high-performance driving events. Since the launch of the HPDE Insurance Program, thousands of enthusiasts have utilized this service and nearly one hundred of them have experienced the outstanding claim service provided by the underwriter of this program.

"Although our program already provides a fantastic solution to a large segment of the HPDE community that participates in five events or less per year, we have listened to our customers and are expanding our offerings in 2011 to meet the needs of HPDE enthusiasts that are more active in the hobby."
In February of 2011, the HPDE Insurance Program will begin offering a number of annual policy options
that provide coverage at a discounted rate for multiple events in a policy year. Four different policy options
will allow enthusiasts to choose a package that matches their level of activity in HPDE events. Two new
features will be very popular with enthusiasts: coverage will be available at any approved track in the U.S. and Canada, and the policy automatically extends coverage for up to $2,500 in additional modifications made during the policy year. Coverage for a $20,000 car participating in six events or less per year can be purchased for a premium as low as $590.
"Enthusiasts and event organizers have both benefitted from this insurance program which we developed
in collaboration with Lockton" said Brian Ghidinelli, founder of MotorsportReg.com. "These new policy
offerings will permit even the most hardcore HPDE fanatic to keep their cars covered at a reasonable
