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.

Regulations are much tighter these days and if a vehicle fails the test you won’t get on track or a refund.

Formula E is a new FIA World Championship featuring Formula cars powered exclusively by electric energy. The Championship will have ten teams and is classed as an open championship – so its an amazing place for teams and manufacturers to showcase what they can do and develop the technology.
