Excuse the double post, but two questions.

1/ Are the Late Models running anywhere in the UK in 2016

2/ and the Lydden Oval/Truck meeting they often raced at in June. Is that happening in 2016? Just asking as the last Lydden car meeting in Oct 2015 got cancelled, and not seen any dates for Car Racing at Lydden for 2016 yet?

Lydden currently has a 100 decibels noise limit which is making car racing very difficult this year.

What's the limit at Brands Rod?

105 for club saloons, 108 for single seaters

The difference between 105 and 100 is almost a 30% reduction in noise.

That would be quite a drop then - I assume that's part of the reason that Combe isn't used by some clubs? We're running a 100db limit at Brands this coming weekend (but that's normal for events we do). I imagine Lydden must have some exception clauses (number of 'noisy' days?) as the rallycross cars are surely over the 100db limit?

So far as I know only three exemption days, hence the problem for the clubs

Wow, that is a problem - they're going to struggle to run their rallycross meetings with only 3 loud days. Hopefully they can get their planning applications through and can then run more loud days (and sensibly police the other days so there aren't breaches that cause complaints).

Whack mufflers on the cars and get them below 100? Not terribly difficult.

That's just sad.

Why the sudden change? Was it a condition of planning permission for the proposed new buildings? 3 days or 3 weekends? As the 3 Rallycross meetings account for 5 days?

I'm still surprised that anyone can hear Lydden Track noise above traffic on the A2.

Maybe take a leaf out of "Wimbledon Stadiums" book, and run in the winter, when people aren't sitting in their gardens, and have their windows closed to keep the warmth in.

Sadly Lydden's owners have sold their soul to rallycross for one meting a year!

I do get it I suppose they are a rallycross family, but it can hardly generate much of an income, the south east racing scene was bubbling along nicely and a last remnant really of local club racing other than Combe.

And it's hardly like rallycross cars are quiet, certainly no quieter than club race cars.

As for Late Models, well they are simply not suited to racing in the UK and only a few places abroad, cut losses and tie in with Whelen NASCAR I say.

When you think of what all Bill Chesson stood for with regard to Grass Roots Motorsports of all kinds, from the 3 in 1 meetings, SPC Rallycross, its a crying shame there is not one circuit or oval race on the 2016 calender.

I still do not understand why and where these new noise regulations have come from. There were already strict curfew times at Lydden, so why were these additional restrictions deemed necessary?
