  3. COMING SOON A return visit to the full 2700 meter long Clastres circuit with its mix of twisties from the original shorter circuit and sweeping turns and long straight from the new full circuit. Similar to Abbeville for Safety, Clastres is flat with good visibility and decent run off. General circuit information: HERE Noise limit: 95db static & 102db drive by * Noise Limits Static test – A noise meter is placed at a 45 degree angle to the exhaust outlet and 50cm away. The car is then held at 3/4 of its maximum rev limit and the highest reading recorded is the cars recorded noise output for the day. A static limit of 105db is very high and very few cars have an issue with this. At 98db cars with a cat, std factory manifolds and exhausts will generally be ok. Anyone with a very loud exhaust/manifold should be careful. Drive by – This test is recorded at track side as the car is moving at track speed. Depending on the circuit the reading will be taken between right next to the track and up to 20 meters away. Cars with forced induction tend to have more issues with drive by, even though they tend to pass static tests as the s/c or turbo’s only kick in when run at speed. There are many things that affect drive by readings from wind direction, air temperature, how low the cloud cover is or even what line you are driving. Close Format: Open pit lane Format A sessioned event means that the day will be structured into usually 3 separate groups which take it in turns to go out on track for a set time, norm ally 20 minutes. Each car will be restricted to their group for the duration of the day. Drivers are generally allocated a group depending on their experience level or type of car. An Open Pit Lane event means that cars are free to go out onto the track when they choose (providing the circuit limit or our normally reduced limit has not been reached).

  13. ** COMING SOON ** Built into the natural contours of the Cheshire countryside, Oulton Park’s combination of stunning scenery and spectacular configuration make it one of the most picturesque and best-loved driver circuits in the UK. Over more than 60 years it has gathered a reputation as the country’s toughest test for both car and driver. General circuit information: HERE Noise limit: 105db static & 92db DriveBy Noise Limits Static test – A noise meter is placed at a 45 degree angle to the exhaust outlet and 50cm away. The car is then held at 3/4 of its maximum rev limit and the highest reading recorded is the cars recorded noise output for the day. A static limit of 105db is very high and very few cars have an issue with this. At 98db cars with a cat, std factory manifolds and exhausts will generally be ok. Anyone with a very loud exhaust/manifold should be careful. Drive by – This test is recorded at track side as the car is moving at track speed. Depending on the circuit the reading will be taken between right next to the track and up to 20 meters away. Cars with forced induction tend to have more issues with drive by, even though they tend to pass static tests as the s/c or turbo’s only kick in when run at speed. There are many things that affect drive by readings from wind direction, air temperature, how low the cloud cover is or even what line you are driving. Close Format: Open pit lane Format A sessioned event means that the day will be structured into usually 3 separate groups which take it in turns to go out on track for a set time, norm ally 20 minutes. Each car will be restricted to their group for the duration of the day. Drivers are generally allocated a group depending on their experience level or type of car. An Open Pit Lane event means that cars are free to go out onto the track when they choose (providing the circuit limit or our normally reduced limit has not been reached). Close Experience level: All levels Experience Levels All levels: Everyone Beginner: 1st ever track day Novice: 1-5 track days without a major circuit Intermediate: 5+ track days including a major circuit Advanced: Attended a number of open pit lane days at a range of circuits Close Driver & vehicle safety: Please read Participant & Vehicle Information Clothing must fully cover arms & legs. Crash helmets must be in good condition and suitable for circuit driving in a car. (Jet style helmets will be classed as open face) ANY vehicle without a hard top or fixed roof will require occupants to wear full face helmets. Alcohol must not be consumed, including at lunch time.

  21. ** COMING SOON ** Designed from scratch by former F1 driver Jonathan Palmer, there is nowhere else in the world like Bedford Autodrome. The venue has been purpose built for speed and space with vast run-off areas that provide optimum safety. Whilst there are several track configurations, with every kind or corner, there’s no motor racing at the Autodrome, so there’s no crowd-protecting safety barriers or concrete walls.
