Ian Hall chooses RH to insure his special bodied 1965 Austin Healey Sprite (pictured) and hand-built Darrian Wildcat T98 6 litre Rover V8 powered race car because:
RH has proved extremely price competitive over the years (around 30% more competitive than other specialist motorsport insurers) and I appreciate the fact that I can speak to fellow petrol-heads when I call. Today I spoke to James Kenny, a lovely man, who he was extremely passionate, and knowledgeable, about specialist vehicles. In fact we had a good ‘chin wag’ which you don’t really expect when talking to your insurance company so that was a particularly nice touch.
I’m a Rolls-Royce engineer by trade and have built, and developed, a variety of race cars over the years. I bought this Austin Healey Sprite new, on HP, when I was an engineering apprentice. My annual premium for this car is just £69 and I can cover up to 3,000 miles (in reality, I probably won't cover more than 100 miles). My Darrian is my seventh race car I've built and my all-time favourite having won on 79 occasions. She’s currently campaigned in the Special Saloons and Modsports series which is tremendous fun.
I would recommend RH to fellow race drivers as their damage, fire and theft cover is extremely competitively priced and far less restrictive than the majority of cover which I was offered elsewhere. This, coupled with great service from people who are genuinely interested in my car, is why I have remained loyal to RH for the past 20 years”.
