Snetterton, Sunday 10 March - Javelin

I've booked onto this. First trackday in the 400 since I bought it last year - should probably have checked if it would pass the noise tests first but I've complete faith in what Lee told me when I picked it up!

It's wet. It's windy. There's very little grip. Quite a lot of fun even so... But tripped the drive by noise  meter on the third run and been black flagged! See if the cans make a difference after lun

@C8RKH was Snetterton. Yeah, the cans didn't help. Static tested in the morning at 96db, so thought I was in good shape. Then did 3 runs, they flagged me on the 3rd run, they were doing their best and

No, its a 2bular. Quieter than OE,and there are some cans to. Lee did a couple of trackdays while he had it. 

I'm about an hour or so from Snetterton. @Hangar111@Hangar111 do you have a noise test meter?

Good job its not a stock exhaust because that would be a definite fail at Snetterton on a 400 🙂 

I might look at this day, its always good to have a weekend track day.  My only doubt is I've found Javelin days to be very busy.

Well, if it's going to be too loud I can always take the station snotter. Anyone overtaken by a 307 diesel on ditchfinders should hang their head in shame!

I've never had any issues with Javelin. Always been a good day out

Cans didn't help so I just had passenger rides in the afternoon. Guess I need to investigate an even quieter 2bular before I do another UK trackday

I believe Bedford is one of the toughest circuits for noise.  Sorry to hear it did not go too well for you. Did they give you a DB rating as I'd be keen to know.  Thanks.

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

@Gashead1105 just twigged it was your 400 today. Even looked at your exhaust, did you put additional silencers on?  It sounded great and not as loud as other 400’s. I shoukd have come to say hello, I was testing in a C1 for the 24hr race. Very wet and cold but a great day. Ps your car looked ace

@C8RKH was Snetterton. Yeah, the cans didn't help. Static tested in the morning at 96db, so thought I was in good shape. Then did 3 runs, they flagged me on the 3rd run, they were doing their best and hoping the rain would dampen the sound, but ran out of leeway in the end. I hit 96 on the drive by. 92 is the limit at Snet, which is pretty standard. Before I do the next one in the UK I will look to get one of the QP ones. Not sure when that will be of course, and will probably be Spa next to be honest...

@Stuart Monument aw, thanks. Yeah, it's not as loud as a normal one - @Gm77was there with me in his wife's Focus because his OE 400 has no hope of passing - but still too loud in the end. They wouldn't let me back out even, I put the cans on but they weren't enough to make a difference, not to quieten it by 4db anyway! Also I was a bit careless on the static noise testing and managed to ring up 104db! So as it was louder than I achieved in the morning, that was that for the day. Not worth arguing about. I amused myself abusing Greg's driving from the passenger seat of the focus instead. I'd love to do something like the C1 racing. Not got the time though
