MEMBERSHIP LICENSE AGREEMENT

THIS MEMBERSHIP LICENSE AGREEMENT (the "Agreement") is by and between Pacific Northwest Motorsports Park, LLC, a Delaware Limited Liability Company ("PNMP") and the person(s) being granted a revocable license to use the Facilities pursuant to the terms, covenants and conditions contained in herein (“Member”).  Member acknowledges that the interest acquired pursuant to this Agreement is only that of a revocable license to use the Facilities pursuant to the terms, covenants and conditions contained in this Agreement, the Track and Club Rules, and the Application, and that the interest being acquired is not an equity or other ownership interest in PNMP or the Facilities.   This Agreement is made and entered into as of the date this Agreement is signed on the last page by the parties hereto.
PNMP owns and operates, or will own and operate, track facilities (the "Facilities") known as Pacific Northwest Motorsports Park.  The Facilities are expected to include but not be limited to an approximate 6.0+ mile road course with various driving configurations, paddock areas, administration buildings, public restrooms, office areas, rentable garages, private garage suite lots, access roads, common areas and clubhouse. 
PNMP intends to operate the Facilities as a "semi-private" Motorsports club as well as a race track for professional motorsports sanctioned events, with a guarantee of at least 20 days per month [10 days per month for Emerald members (Motorcycles Only)] of exclusive segmented  track  time  as determined by PNMP management on Designated Members Days set aside for members only.  This Agreement sets forth the license privileges which PNMP will make available to the Member.
The terms “Member” and “membership” are used for ease of use and understanding.  The terms “Member” and “membership” do not give the Member an equity or ownership interest in PNMP or the Facilities.

IIAcceptance of Members

PNMP may establish additional, or modify existing, parameters for acceptance in its sole discretion. Current parameters for the acceptance of Members include, but are not necessarily limited to, the following:
a)     Completion of a membership application (the "Application") and this Agreement in such form as may be prescribed by PNMP.  By completion of the Application, and signature of this Membership Agreement each Member agrees to be bound by the terms of this Agreement and the Track and Club Rules.  
b)     The Member shall be required to pay an initial, non-refundable Initiation Fee, along with membership dues and daily use fees for guests. Such fees shall be payable in the amounts and at such times as are set forth in the Application accepted by PNMP. Upon payment by the Member of its full Initiation Fee, the Member shall relinquish all rights to such fee and understands and acknowledges that the fee shall not be refundable to the Member for any reason whatsoever, and the Member fully and unconditionally releases and forever discharges PNMP and its affiliates, officers, members, managers, employees, and agents (the “Releasees”) from any and all claims which the Member now has, has ever had or may hereafter have against PNMP or the other Releasees in connection with the payment of the Initiation Fee.  
c)     Acceptance by PNMP of the applicant for membership, subject to the requirements set forth in the Track and Club Rules. 
d)     PNMP reserves the right to limit the number of members, from time to time, to levels it deems appropriate for the overall enjoyment of the facility by all members.
e)     In the event PNMP receives membership applications in excess of PNMP´s then established maximum, a waiting list shall be created.  As additional memberships are created or become available for sale, the applicants on the waiting list will be offered membership in the order in which their applications were received.

III. Nature of Membership

The Member acknowledges that membership does not give the Member an equity or ownership interest in PNMP or the Facilities, nor does it give the Member a vested or prescriptive right or easement to use the Facilities.   Member acknowledges that the interest acquired pursuant to this Agreement is only that of a revocable license to use the Facilities pursuant to the terms, covenants and conditions contained in this Agreement, the Track and Club Rules, and the Application.  Members shall not be subject to any liability for capital or operating assessments for the costs and expenses of owning or operating PNMP or the Facilities, nor shall Members be entitled to any revenues or profits relating to the ownership or operation of PNMP or the Facilities. 

IV. Membership Fees

The Member shall pay to PNMP the Initiation Fee and the membership dues.  PNMP shall establish the monthly dues, which are subject to change, with exceptions as noted in Item I.  Membership dues may be paid on a monthly or yearly basis.  As used herein, a "membership year" shall be the same as a calendar year, unless otherwise established from time to time by PNMP.  The Member shall pay the membership dues in accordance with the terms set forth in the Application accepted by PNMP.  PNMP reserves the right to change the membership dues each year at its sole discretion; provided, however, that any such increase in the annual membership fees shall not exceed ten percent (10.0%) from one membership year to the next.  No Member may use the Facilities if their membership fees have not been timely paid.  Failure to pay such fees when due, including any late fees or similar charges, shall be grounds for suspension and/or revocation of all membership license privileges.

V. Renewal, Resignation, Transfers and Suspension of Membership

Renewal and Resignation; Termination of Membership.  Membership shall be perpetually renewed, unless the Member has resigned and terminated his membership in writing, mailed or delivered to PNMP.  The Member’s membership may be terminated with a thirty (30) day written notice to PNMP.  Any such termination shall be effective the first day of the month which is at least 30 days following receipt of the termination and shall not relieve the Member of any dues, fees or charges of any other nature accruing prior to such effective date, unless PNMP, in its discretion, allows a refund.  PNMP does not issue any refunds for annual membership fees or Initiation Fees previously paid by the member. 

Transfers of Membership.  All memberships can be transferred under the following conditions:  (1) the payment of thirty percent (30%) of the transfer price to PNMP; and (2) PNMP management approval.  Founder transfers will be subject to current dues at the time of transfer.

Upgrading Category of Membership.  The Member may change membership categories to a higher category of membership, provided that: (a) the Member pays to PNMP the difference between the then-applicable Initiation Fee for such desired category and the original Initiation Fee paid by the Member, and (b) memberships are available in such desired category.  The membership dues payable shall be adjusted as of the date the Member changes membership categories pursuant to this section. 

Downgrading Category of Membership. The Member may change membership categories to a lower category of membership, provided that memberships are available in such desired category.  PNMP is not required to return or refund any portion of the Initiation Fee paid by the Member.  The membership dues payable shall be adjusted as of the date the Member changes membership categories pursuant to this section.

Death of a Member.  The following options shall be available upon the death of a Member:

a)    If the Member who died was part of a group membership (such as Corporate), the surviving Member(s) may designate another Member to replace the deceased member.  The surviving Member(s) is/are required to notify PNMP in writing of the name of the new designated member.  PNMP will not return or refund the Initiation Fee paid upon the death of a member. 

b)    If the Member who died had an individual membership (such as a Diamond membership), such Members membership shall cease upon death, and the membership dues shall cease being payable upon the date of death.  Member´s estate shall not be relieved of any dues, fees or charges of any other nature accruing prior to such date of death. PNMP shall not be required to return or refund the Initiation Fee paid by the Member.  If a Member who dies had a spouse who was part of the individual membership, then the individual membership shall immediately be vested solely with the spouse.  Even though legal dependents shall be part of the individual memberships, once both parents die, the membership is automatically terminated. 

Legal Separation or Divorce.  In the event of a divorce or legal separation of spouses, the membership shall vest in the spouse awarded the membership by an agreement of separation or a decree of divorce.  Until PNMP is notified in writing of the disposition of the membership pursuant to an agreement of separation or a decree of divorce, both spouses shall be jointly and severally liable for all dues and charges payable hereunder and both may continue to enjoy membership privileges so long as such amounts are timely paid.

Transfers within Group Memberships.  For Corporate memberships, up to three of the original four Members may be replaced with new Members, subject to PNMP Management approval, provided:

(a)    each such new Member signs a Membership Agreement and an Application; and
(b)    each such new Member pays a fee of thirty (30%) of the then current Corporate Initiation Fee. 

Suspension of Membership.  The Member´s membership may be suspended by PNMP for a period of up to one full year for just cause.  Just cause for suspension shall include, but is not limited to, conduct unbecoming of a Member, violation of this Agreement, or violation of the Track and Club Rules, as the same may be in effect from time to time.  Dues and other obligations shall continue to be due and payable during the suspension and must be paid in full when due. 

Inactive Membership. Any Member may apply to PNMP for inactive status for a maximum of one year.  Application for inactive status must be made in writing at least thirty (30) days prior to the proposed inactivation date.  The Member shall be granted inactive status and have no member privileges for such membership year; provided that:

(a)    such Member pays a $500.00 fee for the inactive membership year; and
(b)    the Member shall only be entitled to be an inactive Member one time. 

PNMP shall not be obligated to accept more than 10 inactive memberships during any one year.  No membership dues shall be payable during the inactive year.  An inactive Member may reactivate their membership at any time during the inactive year by paying all membership dues which would have accrued had the Member remained active, less the $500.00 paid by Member as provided above.

Termination of Membership.  The Member´s membership may be terminated and revoked by PNMP for:
(a)     failure to pay membership dues on time, including any late fees or similar charges; or
(b)    failure by Member or the Member´s guests to comply with the terms of this Agreement, the Track and Club Rules, or the Application. Upon such termination, PNMP need not honor any privileges arranged for prior to termination.  PNMP shall have no liability for any damages due to the cancellation of special privileges upon termination.
