You should also confirm that a claim has been made on the Motorsport UK policy if the event was run under their licence.

Personal Accident Insurances
The following is an explanation of the categories relating to our Personal Accident Insurances.
It is not exhaustive and whether an event is covered will be up to the Underwriters.
This covers any marshals at a motorsport event, where Motorsport UK have issued a Permit to the event or any event run and authorised by the FIA or run and organised by the local governing body recognised by the FIA (so includes overseas GP’s).
This policy is a top-up to the main policy held by Motorsport UK.
The policy doesn’t include travel cover as a traditional travel policy would, however, the Personal Accident benefits would be paid if you were injured traveling to and from an event.
This cover is for Non Motorsport UK events where a Permit was not required by the Organisers, who are Non-Motorsport UK Registered Clubs.
If they are registered with Motorsport UK, then only those events classified as “Social Runs” ( ie non competitive and for the camaraderie of the participants) will come under Category B. Any other than a Social Run requires a Permit and therefore falls in Category A.
Again the policy doesn’t include travel cover as a traditional travel policy would, however, the Personal Accident benefits would be paid if you were injured traveling to and from an event.
Non-Motorsport UK Registered Club
Emergency Medical Repatriation
This is an additional policy that will cover Emergency Medical Repatriation and runs in addition to the Personal Accident/Injury cover.
