Drafting Damages: Finding a Racetrack Design Expert



Auto racing's popularity has grown significantly in the United States in the last decade, contributing to the nearly $200 billion global industry. Amidst flags and flashy cars, the infrastructure of auto racing is often overlooked. But in these high-intensity events, the racetrack is subject to extreme structural and environmental challenges. How is that damage measured and how can a track be restored to a safe level? IMS had the opportunity to find an expert to answer those questions.

Primary Case Issue

Our client represented a property insurer in a dispute regarding the payout for environmental damage to a professional motorsport track. Our client sought an expert to inspect the track, assess its original construction, speak to the scope of damages, and opine on the repairs or replacements needed to restore it.

Expert Witness Requirements

  • Extensive experience in racetrack design, construction, and maintenance
  • Ability to travel and perform site inspection
  • Previous expert witness experience preferred
  • Immediate availability to begin work

Expert Witness Search

An IMS researcher located eight candidates with expertise in the design and construction of paved roadways. A recruiter reached out to each expert to clear conflicts and vet the experts’ credentials and experience. Profiles of three highly qualified candidates were sent to the client within five business days. Each expert had more than 20 years of experience in the design and construction of racing circuits.

Expert Witness Placement

The expert our client selected was an engineer with more than 30 years of global experience in racetracks, specializing in design, construction, inspection, and safety.
