Florida statute defines liability in the context specific to motorsport spectators.

July 1, 2019
MacGregor v. Daytona Intl. Speedway LLC, 263 So.2d 3d 151

The Court of Appeal reversed summary judgment on appeal when it found that the lower court incorrectly determined that the release signed by a woman killed in a restricted area of speedway barred suit. Gross negligence cannot be barred, as discussed in the Florida Statute specific to motor sport non-spectator liability releases, which defines negligence in 549.09 (1)(e) as excluding gross negligence, recklessness or willful and wanton conflict.
