[If you have 2 years+ claim-free experience driving an Elise or similar, quotes are very competitive. 10% discounts available for SELOC Club Supporters. Also additional discount (10%) to be had for car control course / driver training - need certificate to prove attendance though]. Track cover includes some EU circuits (Nurburgring) but doesn't include recovery costs and windscreen damage not covered on track. Won't mirror NCB from another car, but were happy to give me 4 year's worth "introductory bonus". Policies limited to 7000 miles.
May 2012 - Just got a quote and it included 6 track days with the same conditions as above. As of 2012, Aviva (CCI's underwriter) are heavily loading premiums for anyone that requires "commuting" cover, be sure to mention if you dont need it.
|Heritage||0121 246 6062 - ask for Martin (drivers over 28yrs.)||Discount for SELOC members||Yes||Track cover only included for club you are a member of eg LoT, cover is available for events with other TDOs at an additional premium. Will mirror NCB from other cars - no need to transfer your NCB to the vehicle insured with them. Check terms with Heritage. Spoke to on 11/1/2012 and refused to quote on Elise, saying they dont really deal with these any more|

|Manning UK||01491 578759||-||Yes||Sportscar specialists (run club schemes for TVR/Porsche/Aston). Includes trackdays. Discounts for driver training. Happy to quote for Lotus too, very friendly/helpful. Target profile is primarily second car or low mileage (5K) drivers, werent competitive (for me) on a 9K miles policy.
