Guys for the record I never said the new housing estate was the reason for the closure. I just said the negotiations for re-opening would be difficult. I don't know why the track was prevented from running events for the rest of this year.

True, I think some assumptions have been reached.

From their statement:

'The support we have received from [...] local residents is incredible and extremely appreciated,'

Let's not fall into the trap of demonising residents while casting a blind eye at our own failings.



Example - queuing to get to a CSCC Silverstone meeting at Silverstone I got caught up in Japfest traffic. It was 7-30 am , on Sunday and - IN THE VILLAGE - a pack of silly young men in pimped up Skylines etc were trying to out compete each other by pumping up the stereo and holding the engines on the rev limiter . It was appalling , and if I'd lived there I'd have rung Silverstone to complain, and then the police to confess that I'd just put a paving slab through a GTR's windscreen .



Left a bike meeting recently? It's a God given opportunity to share with locals the sound of your illegal race cans at 12,000rpm.



Track days , rare 30 years ago , are now run day after day - that's what caused the biggest problem at Croft and Mallory .



Seen the litter in and around a circuit after a BTCC meeting ? It's an utter disgrace



Nobody loves the sound of racing engines more than me , as my damaged hearing bears witness , but sometimes we really do not help our case do we ?

Nice avatar, Malcolm…
Not all the residents have been complaining over the years, we've always appreciated the commitment of the neighbors at Spa when using the long track. They had to stand the closure of their gardens by guard rails, several trucks supplying food, drinks and other stuff prior to the 24 hours or 1000 kilomètres. The Belgians love cars, cheers to that. Dont expect the same thing to happen in France…

I absolutely agree with this. And I live v near Donington Park. However only this week on another forum, someone was asking where the noise monitors were at DP so they could short shift near them but get back on it during the rest of the lap. They knew their car was too loud for the day but wanted to circumvent the rules.
It is fine to tell people not to move near a race track. But it is also fine to tell people not to be a pr**k and cause a noise nuisance for 80% of a lap. It does annoy the neighbours and it could threaten the existence of our sport in the future.
The track noise limits are for the whole of the track, not just for the 30 yards either side of the noise meters. As participants we do have a responsibility to understand the rules and comply with them for the long term good of our sport.

The information I had was that it was the MOD causing the issues.

As with Mt Panorama at Bathurst, the upmarket housing occupants who access from what is a public road normally, either have to escape early and disappear for the day or settle in and enjoy.

As I understand it, the MOD have made the decision to not allow the Karting activities during the current restrictions.
This is, in part, due to the need for the MOD to make all of its premises COVID-safe. They are also under pressure to use/make available a lot of land for COVID-based activities. If Rissington is one of those locations identified, then it's unfortunate but inevitable that other activities will be restricted.

To jump to the conclusion that local residents have caused a problem is not only unfair, but also runs the risk of causing animosity where non exists already. I'm sure those involved with Rissington Kart Club would not want their relationship with the local community to suffer due to idle speculation and assumption.

Yeah, it's better to avoid scandals and confrontations with local communities over misconceptions, the times are hard for the sport, and it'd be better not to take risks and cause it more issues!
Sure, waiting is hard, but if it allows the sport to keep existing and not be the target of petitions and other demonstrations, then it's worth it.

Have to be honest here, my Dad was plod, they always made a special effort when the big meetings were at Cadwell, made a bloody fortune!

It is usually and very rarely competitors that ruin race tracks for the locals, obviously the noise can be a complaint, it is often things like traffic, rubbish, fans making a racket that is the problem.

Can you imagine living anywhere near Silverstone before the dual was built, imagine needing to get a flight to East Midlands when something like the MotoGP or the RAC was on and you had no idea, you would be cursing and at Donington that is STILL the case.
