Si, do you think they will actually be testing the cars for noise or is it something they have had to put in the paperwork to keep the neighbours happy?


Anyone else know where would have a dB meter? MOT places?


well, it does say that "A noise limit of 105 dB will be enforced (measured at 0.5m and 45 degree angle from exhaust exit at 2/3 of max rpm). Cars exceeding this limit will not be permitted on track"

Well that was a great day; many thanks to Heckler for arranging it.


I am pleased to report that this year, the organisers seem to have found a solution to the stones; I only noticed them once when I went fairly close to the left of the main runway.


If they do the same next time I don't think we need worry.

Non-existent :D


I hoped that might be the case but couldn't get anyone to admit to it.


Gutted I didn't go now:( but I wasn't gonna risk failing the dB test.


This is always a good day and if they have sorted stone problem thats very good news :thumbs:


Bring on the next one!:eyebrows:
