Why have noise limits at a race track?
It can seem a bit weird having a noise limit at a race track. Its a bit like telling a rock concert to keep the noise down. Race circuits by their very nature are going to be noisy – just like motorways. Most have been running since the 50′s and so anyone that moves near one should accept it or don’t move there in the first place in my opinion. But we are in a decade where law changes have enabled people to use the ‘letter of the law’ to satisfy their own selfish needs. As a result noise limits are the main limitation when it comes to taking your Car or Motorcycle on a track day, and for those that know their vehicle is ‘a bit close’, the noise test can be the most nerve racking part of the event! Regulations are much tighter these days and if a vehicle fails the test you won’t get on track or a refund.
