TLF News Posted October 22, 2021 Report Share Posted October 22, 2021 Maison Blanche – Bugatti – Our annual visit to a circuit that needs no words. Over 2.5 miles of undulating track with a variety of challenging corners and wide run offs. Using the main arena for arguably the World’s greatest race the Le Mans 24hr and it’s modern facilities. For the second time in 6 years we return to an Open Pit Lane format at Le Mans Bugatti, rather than running in sessions. This means cars must weigh between 800kg & 1800kg. To be clear all Elise S2 111R, Elise S3, Exiges, Evoras, VX220’s, Boxsters, Caymens and most other non Lotus types of car that we accept will be ok. Unfortunately we cannot accept Caterhams or Elise S1 as things stand. Elise S2 K series owners please email Paul. During lunch on the Saturday we’ll put all the cars on the legendary grid and then do a slow – photo lap with everyone who wants. TRACK DAYS ONLY – £495 / 575€ until 1/2/22 then rises » To book the track days ONLY (Friday 12th & Saturday 13th) without hotels included please do so below. General circuit information: Maison Blanche / Bugatti CircuitNoise limit: 100db 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, normally 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).
