Refunds & Returns

Cut Price Racing Refunds & Returns Policy.


We take great care and deliver our products with great pride. We try to ensure absolutely every transaction is easy, quick, and most of all satisfying for you - the customer.

But we realise that even we aren't completely flawless, and from time to time you may need to ask us to return your product. If you think you may need to return a product for refund or replacement, please use our easy-to-read table below to see what you need to do so that we can help you quickly.

Please note when returning items, ensure they are properly protected and individually wrapped so they are not damaged during transit. Damage caused by poor packaging will either be deducted from the refund/exchange or the item may not be accepted as a return.


Following is a list of refund types, and conditions of refund:

^Item wrongly ordered or changed mind - note, restricted item returns apply - see further down for excluded items.

Store Credit of purchase price less *restocking fee. At our discretion on a case-by-case basis. There are no guarantees of a return in these circumstances.

*Restocking fees (These only apply to "Item wrongly ordered" or "changed mind" circumstances - these apply to each item individually if multiple items are being returned):

Item value up to $59.95 - $14.95 

Item value over $59.95 and up to $99.95 - 25% of purchase price.

Item value over $100 - 20% of purchase price.

Please note: A restocking fee may be higher where shipping costs are in excess of the 25% purchase price (Generally this only applies to bulky items). We will advise you if this is the case at the time a return/refund is negotiated.

Why do we need to charge a restocking fee?
Because our business operates a third-party owned warehouse, we are charged a fee per shipment. There is also a fee for us to pay to return goods back to stock. We also are charged various fees by eBay, Paypal and Card processing companies when you buy your item. We try to cover most of these costs in our product pricing so if goods are returned we need to charge out this cost or we will lose money from helping customers return goods. We're happy to pay this cost if it's our fault though. We also need to cover the cost of postage (which we do not charge you but does cost us when we ship you goods.) as well as handling and packaging materials which generally need to be replaced upon return of the item.

^Are all products covered by the returns policy?
We do ensure we are thorough and provide the absolute highest possible level of service. All products are covered by the first two clauses - Item faulty or does not fit when CPR guarantees fitment and item missing components.
In the case of the third clause "*Item wrongly ordered or changed mindthere are some exclusions:
- Plastic Bodywork kits (Nosecones, sidepods etc)
- Seats
- Engines
- Complete DIY go kart and axle kits
Please ensure you choose these types of items carefully to avoid being disappointed.
