“Authorised Person” means an RML Director or the manager assigned to your order by RML. If you have received a quotation the manager assigned to your order will have signed your quotation as the authorising person.

1.1 Where the word “including” appears in these terms and conditions it is to be understood as meaning “including but not limited to” unless otherwise specified.

1.2 Where RML’s agreement, confirmation or approval is referred to or required in these Conditions it must be obtained in writing from an Authorised Person.

1.3 By law consumers have additional statutory rights. These rights are unaffected by these conditions.

1.4 Headings are for convenience only and are not intended to affect interpretation.

2. Order Procedures

2.1 Quotations are given in good faith but are not binding on RML.  As circumstances can change, all quotations are subject to confirmation in writing by RML upon receipt of the Customer’s order.

2.2 Although RML will try to ensure the information provided when a Customer contacts RML about the Goods and Services, is accurate, RML may not be aware of all the circumstances that may affect your choice.  Unless verbal information or advice is confirmed by RML in writing as part of the Acknowledgement of Order it should be treated as guidance only and should not be relied upon without further verification.

2.3 An order for the Goods and/or Services shall be deemed to be an offer by the Customer to buy Goods and/or Services in accordance with and subject to these terms and conditions. RML will only have accepted that offer only when it has indicated in writing to the Customer on RML’s Acknowledgement of Order form. Such acceptance shall take effect only on these RML terms and conditions of sale. No term or provision that is not expressly agreed and set out in the Acknowledgement of Order shall be incorporated into the contract. This includes any provision contained in standard terms and conditions put forward or routinely used by the Customer in the course of its business that the Customer purports to bring into effect as governing any contract with RML. Nor shall any such standard terms and conditions of the Customer be treated as a counter offer. No purported variation of any of these terms and conditions, shall become binding on RML unless and until RML has agreed to it in writing in terms that conform to Condition 21.3.

2.4 The Customer must ensure the Acknowledgement of Order form accurately sets out the terms of its order including any particular uses of the Goods and Services that have been agreed with RML. Any special conditions or amendments to RML standard conditions that have been agreed by RML should be noted on the Acknowledgement of Order. Unless the Customer notifies RML in writing of any error in the Acknowledgement of Order form within 24 hours of receipt or (if earlier) before the delivery of the Goods and/or Services, such Acknowledgement of Order form will be the agreed order.

3. Description of Goods and Services

3.1 Much of RML’s Goods and Services are customised or involve the modification of standard parts. Descriptions, example specifications and performance indicators contained in catalogues, price lists and other leaflets or descriptive matter produced by RML for these Goods are for illustration and guidance only. They do not form part of the description of the Goods as the specification and performance of such Goods and Services will vary. Unless otherwise agreed in the Acknowledgement of Order, any sample given of any Goods and/or Services is by way of identification only and does not constitute a sale by sample.

3.2 In respect of Goods manufactured by a third party and sold by RML unmodified:

a. RML includes product specifications, measurements and technical data supplied by the manufacturer of such Goods. Such information is to be treated as guidance only and the Customer should note that tolerances will be allowed by the manufacturer.

b. Sizes, colour, specification and fitting may vary dependent upon the make and model of the Customer’s vehicle.

c. Manufacturers reserve the right to change the specification of their products without notice. The Customer is advised to check the current specification and product details directly with the manufacturer, before ordering.

3.3 Unless RML sells the Goods specifically for use on public roads the Goods may not be operated or licensed for use on public roads or in public places.

3.4 Goods to be used in motorsport will be built to the sporting or championship regulations as at the date specified in the Acknowledgement of Order. If no date is specified then the Goods will be built to the regulations that prevailed when RML provided its quotation or (if none was provided) at the date of the Customer’s order. If these regulations change then work required to make the Goods compliant will incur additional cost which will be payable by the Customer in accordance with condition 6.5 or (where applicable) condition 6.6 unless otherwise expressly agreed in the Acknowledgement of Order.

3.5 RML reserves the right without notice to the Customer to make any changes in the specification of the Goods and/or Services which are required to conform with any applicable statutory regulations or EU requirement or which improve or do not materially affect their quality or performance.

4. Delivery and Risk

4.1 Delivery of the Goods shall take place when the Customer or its carrier collects the Goods from RML’s premises, such collection to take place within five working days after RML has notified the Customer that the Goods are ready for collection, or, if some other place for delivery is agreed by RML, by RML delivering the Goods to that place.

4.2 Goods will be at the Customer’s risk from the date of delivery, or where the Customer fails to collect, from the date when delivery should have taken place, and the Customer should insure the Goods accordingly. If RML agrees to store the Goods then the Goods will nevertheless remain at the Customer’s risk and should be insured by the Customer.

4.3 Unless it is agreed by RML in the Acknowledgement of Order that the date for dispatch or delivery of Goods or Services is a fundamental requirement of the contract, any date or period quoted by RML for dispatch of the Goods and/or the performance of the Services is given in good faith as an estimate only.  Whilst RML will endeavour to deliver within the period stated, failure to do so date will not entitle the Customer to cancel the contract. If no dates are specified delivery will be within a reasonable period.

4.4 The Customer will provide at its expense at the place of delivery adequate equipment and manual labour for loading (and unloading) the Goods.

4.5 Where the Goods are to be delivered in instalments, each delivery is a separate contract under these terms and conditions. Failure by RML to deliver any one or more of the instalments in accordance with this contract or any claim by the Customer in respect of one or more instalments does not entitle the Customer to cancel the contract as a whole.

4.6 Where the Goods and/or the Services are supplied for export and/or operation outside the United Kingdom, the Customer is responsible (at its own expense) for complying with any legislation or regulations governing the transportation and the importation of the Goods into and operation of the Goods within the country of destination (including without limitation the obtaining of relevant licences, registration permits and permissions) and for the payment of any applicable duties and taxes.

4.7 The Customer is under a duty to inspect the Goods on delivery, installation, or collection as the case may be and also at the completion of any Service performed by RML.  Because of the specialised nature of the Goods and Services, inspections should always be undertaken by properly qualified engineers and mechanics.

5. Failed Delivery

5.1 If the Customer or its carrier fails to take delivery of the Goods or fails to give RML adequate delivery instructions and/or to provide any documents, authorisations or other items required to enable delivery on the date stated for delivery then, notwithstanding any agreement to the contrary, the full price of the Goods and Services shall become immediately due and payable. In addition without prejudice to any other right or remedy available to RML, RML may exercise any one or more of the following rights:

a. at the Customer’s risk store the Goods until actual delivery and the Customer shall pay for the reasonable costs of storage [and insurance]; and/or

b. sell the Goods at the best price readily obtainable and the Customer shall pay for any shortfall below the price due from the Customer under the contract as well as any costs charged under condition 5.1.a .

6. Price and Payment

6.1 Unless otherwise stated on the Acknowledgement of Order the price will be the price for the Goods and/or Services as shown in the price list in force at the date of delivery or deemed delivery. Time for payment is of the essence.

6.2 Unless otherwise stated, all prices quoted are on an ex-works basis exclusive of Value Added Tax and all other duties, carriage, packing, licence fee or insurance charges, which the Customer shall pay where they apply.

6.3 RML reserves the right at any time prior to delivery of the Goods and/or performance of the Services to adjust the price to take account of any increase in the cost of raw materials, third party labour or services, or any currency fluctuations, increases of taxes or duties variations to the specification or increase in the cost of RML in complying with the contract as a result of changes in legislation. RML shall notify Customers of any proposed increase in price. Where the increase is more than 5% of the price RML shall offer Customers the opportunity not to proceed with the contract provided RML is paid for the work carried out and costs it has reasonably incurred up to that point.

6.4 Where RML has agreed to provide Services to the Customer including the provision of personnel the Customer must pay all accommodation subsistence and travel costs incurred by RML in respect of the performance of the Services unless otherwise specified in the Acknowledgement of Order.  The Customer must also provide and pay for suitable transport for RML personnel during the contract to enable the Services to be efficiently performed.  Where such Services are to be performed partly or wholly outside the UK the Customer shall in addition pay for: –

a. promptly obtaining all relevant licences permits and visas

b. RML’s reasonable travel costs to and from the UK in respect of home visits allowed by RML to its personnel

c. the cost of any additional medical insurance for RML personnel (if required by RML)

6.5 Payment must be made without deduction within [28] days of RML’s invoice or (if earlier) before the delivery of the Goods or Services. In the case of Goods or Services to be delivered off RML premises payment shall be made before such Goods or Services are despatched.  The price must be paid in pounds sterling or such other currency as is specified in the Acknowledgement of Order by RML.

6.6 Certain costs that are the responsibility of the Customer may not be ascertainable until after the Goods and /or Services are delivered (for example accommodation, subsistence and travel costs of RML personnel). The Customer shall pay such costs within 28 days of RML’s invoice. RML reserves the right to require the Customer to pay a reasonable deposit on account of such costs and/or to require full payment of these costs prior to the delivery of further Goods and/or Services to the Customer.

6.7 If the Customer fails to make any payment on or before the time specified for payment date then, without prejudice to any other right or remedy available to RML may exercise any one or more of the following rights and remedies and shall not incur any liability to the Customer as a result of the exercise of such remedies:-,

a. Cancel the contract and/or suspend any further deliveries to the Customer;

b. Appropriate any payment made by the Customer to such of the Goods or Services (or Goods or Services supplied under any other contract between RML and the Customer) as RML may think fit (notwithstanding any purported appropriation by the Customer);

c. Charge the Customer interest (both before and after any judgement) on the amount unpaid, at the rate of 4 per cent per annum above Barclays Plc. base rate from time to time, until payment in full is made (interest to be payable on demand and to accrue daily on the basis of a year of 365 days) together with all costs and expenses incurred by RML in the collection of overdue monies.

d. Exercise a general lien on all property of the Customer in its possession, custody or control for all sums due to RML. RML shall give 28 days notice to the Customer of its intention to sell or dispose of such property. If the Customer fails to pay all sums due to RML within the 28 day notice period then RML shall be entitled to sell all or any part of the Customer’s property in RML’s possession, custody or control as agent for and at the expense of the Customer and RML shall apply the proceeds of sale (net of any costs incurred in association with the sale) in or towards the payment of the sums owed to RML by the Customer. Upon accounting to the Customer for the balance remaining (if any) after payment of any sum due to RML and the costs of sale and disposal, RML shall be discharged of any liability whatsoever in respect of the Customer’s property.

For the avoidance of doubt RML shall be entitled to recover the price notwithstanding that delivery may not have taken place and ownership of the Goods has not passed to the Customer.

6.8 If payment by the Customer is not made in the currency required under these conditions then RML will convert the payment into the correct currency at the rate of exchange prevailing at the Bank used by RML.  If the rates and cost of exchanging the currency together with any premiums, commissions, bank charges or other consequential costs incurred by RML when deducted from the payment made by the Customer result in RML receiving less than the full payment then the Customer will pay the shortfall to RML upon demand.

6.9 The Customer shall pay to RML on demand all receiving bank charges incurred by RML arising from any act or omission of the Customer.

6.10 Each contract with the Customer is subject to RML being satisfied with the Customer’s credit status both prior to and during the Contract.  If RML becomes dissatisfied with the Customer’s credit status it may require security for payment before continuing with or delivery of any order.

7. Ownership of RML Goods

7.2 Until such time as ownership of the Goods passes to the Customer, the Customer holds the Goods on RML’s behalf.  The Customer must keep the Goods separate from those of the Customer and third parties and properly stored, protected and insured and identified as RML’s property.  Until the Customer owns the Goods the Customer must not resell them or use them as security for any debt.

7.3 Until the Customer owns the Goods, RML shall be entitled at any time to require the Customer to return the Goods to RML and, if the Customer fails to do so, the Customer gives RML permission to enter any premises of the Customer or of any third party where the Goods are stored on the Customer’s behalf and recover the Goods

8. Safety and General Testing

8.1 The Customer acknowledges that motor sports and high performance driving can be hazardous and accordingly all vehicles in which the Goods are comprised should only be driven by qualified and appropriately experienced drivers and all parts comprised in the Goods should only be repaired or maintained by fully qualified and experienced mechanics

8.2 It is standard practice in motor sports that a properly qualified and experienced mechanic examines the vehicle and any parts to be fitted to the vehicle and carries out preparation for competition before use of the vehicle. The Customer undertakes to comply with that practice both for vehicles participating in motor sport and other high performance vehicles.

8.3 The Customer must ensure that a full and thorough inspection and testing of any vehicle and/or parts in accordance with best current practice is carried out before any vehicle and/or part is used in a race, rally, high performance driving activity test or practice session.

9.3 Where RML supplies parts for use on public roads RML will state to what road regulations the part is built and may give guidance as to which countries the parts may be fitted on road cars. Regulations for road use change regularly and may be affected by the particular vehicle that a part is fitted to, accordingly any such guidance must be verified by the Customer and the Customer must satisfy itself whether the Goods may legally be fitted to its vehicle and be used on the public roads where the Customer intends to operate its vehicle. In most cases a Customer can check road use requirements by contacting the local National Vehicle Type Approval and Certification Authority.

12. Warranties and Guarantees

12.1 The Customer acknowledges that:

a. the nature of motor sport and high performance driving activities is such that the vehicles and components used for these activities have a limited life. For these reasons and because of the extreme and varied conditions that prevail in motor sport and high performance driving the specific use that the Customer makes of Goods supplied by RML and the conditions of use will greatly effect their performance, reliability and durability. No representation, warranty or guarantee is given by RML regarding the performance, reliability or durability or otherwise of the Goods in motor racing, rallying or any form of motor sports or performance driving activity.

b. RML gives no warranty in respect of the performance, durability or reliability of non-standard and prototype parts produced by it.

c. RML cannot give any warranty in respect of used parts purchased by the Customer- such parts are only examined visually for obvious defects and are purchased at the Customer’s risk.

It is fundamental that the Goods are properly tested by the Customer and regularly inspected and maintained. The Customer is aware that he must satisfy himself regarding such matters.

RML will carry out such work to a reasonable standard that is consistent with the standards that prevail within the motor sport industry to motor sport vehicles.

13. Defects

13.1 Any claim alleging defects in respect of the Goods and/or the Services must be notified in writing and addressed to an Authorised Person, as soon as reasonably possible following delivery.  Any defects that could not reasonably have been discovered upon proper inspection must be reported to RML as soon as reasonably practicable.

13.2 The Customer must allow RML to inspect the Goods before any further use and before the Customer makes any alteration or modification.  RML may require the Goods to be returned to RML’s premises to allow a full inspection. It is the responsibility of the Customer to collect from RML’s premises any Goods returned to RML if the Customer’s claim proves to be invalid.

13.3 The Customer will be taken to have accepted the Goods, if the Goods have been altered, processed, and/or incorporated with other goods or sold by the Customer, or if the Customer does not return the Goods to RML within a reasonable time of RML’s request.

13.4 Where RML is satisfied that a properly notified defect is RML’s responsibility and is caused by any fault of RML in design, manufacture or workmanship RML will make good the defect by either (at RML’s discretion) repair or replacement.

14. Liability

f. Defects arising from fair wear and tear (including the additional wear and tear that will inevitably result from any motor sport or high performance activity)

14.3 RML will not be responsible for indirect or consequential losses. RML will not in any circumstances be responsible for any loss of profit, loss of opportunity or loss of reputation of the Customer.

14.4 The total liability of RML under these terms in respect of the supply of Goods and/or the Services to the Customer, shall, so far as is permitted by law, be limited to the price paid by the Customer for the Goods and/or the Services (as the case may be) or any insurance proceeds received by RML in respect of such liability, whichever is the greater.

14.5 The Customer hereby agrees to indemnify and keep indemnified RML (on a full indemnity basis) against all claims, costs, damage, losses whatsoever made against RML by any of the Customer’s employees, customers or any other person for which liability would have been excluded by this condition if the claim had been made against RML by the Customer.

14.6 The Customer will hold harmless and indemnify and keep indemnified RML and (as a separate obligation) RML personnel engaged in providing Services to the Customer, from and against all actions, claims, liabilities, costs and demands arising out of the negligence of any of the Customer’s employees, agents and/or contractors personnel, race or rally team members or drivers working with RML personnel.

15.3 If the circumstances preventing delivery Goods or providing Services are still continuing six months (or such shorter period that RML agrees is reasonable) after the Customer receives RML’s notice then either party may give written notice to the other cancelling the contract.

15.4 If the contract is cancelled in this way, RML will refund any payment which the Customer has already made on account of the price (subject to deduction of any amount RML is entitled to claim from the Customer under the contract and deducting payment for any Goods which have been delivered and for any Services provided on a pro rata basis) but RML will not be liable to compensate the Customer for any further loss or damage caused by the failure to deliver.

16. Cancellation
