Spectator and Rider Releases
Spectator and Rider release are available at the events. BMC follows generally accepted safety and risk management practices for operation of its facility. With respect to competitive events, the short answer is if there is a safe, well marked and secure spectator area (“non-restricted” area), spectators will be allowed to enter the “non-restricted” area without signing a liability release. All areas on BMC grounds that are outside of any designated “non-restricted” zone are considered “restricted” areas. If there is no designated “non-restricted” area, all areas are considered “restricted”.
To enter a “restricted” area, an individual must sign a liability release form. For adults, the process is easy, simply provide proof of age and sign the release at the gate. For minors (under the age of 18), this becomes a bit more complicated. Below we address a couple of the most common scenarios and the forms required to work around and hassles.
For minor spectators (under the age of 18) that will attend a BMC event and want to enter the “restricted” area (typically the pit area), it is required that the parents and/or legal guardians of the minor execute a release of liability on behalf of the minor in advance of the event. When the minor presents this fully executed, signed and dated form, they will be allowed to enter the pit area. Without this form, minors (under the age of 18) that are not accompanied by their parent or legal guardian will not be allowed to enter the restricted (pit) area. For events that have a non-restricted (spectator only) area, unaccompanied minors will be allowed into such viewing areas without parental accompaniment or release forms.

If any minor (under the age of 18) will be attending a BMC event without their parents and/or legal guardians present, but will be attending with other adults, the parent and/or legal guardian can choose to give the attending adults the right to sign releases on their behalf. This is accomplished by the parents and/or legal guardians of the minor executing a Power of Attorney form, which is the legal document that allows for the non-parents to sign on behalf of the parents. This transfer of authority will work for both situations for minor spectators (simply watching the event but entering the “restricted” area in the company of the authorized adults) and minor participants (racing under the supervision of the authorized adults).
