Any electronic footage used in a commercial way without prior approval will be subject to penalties, enforced through legal or arbitration means.

A valid credit card number must be entered once application has been approved. All approved applications will be charged an initial refundable fee as a deposit of $250 which will be credited to cover first day of use. Additional charges will be assessed throughout race week. Each photographer will be required to provide his or her own helmet. A separate application, which can also be found at the link below, must be completed to be considered for a photo moto.
