Zandvoort – Nestled in the sand dunes just a stones throw from the beach and a short drive from Amsterdam this famous circuit is arguably one of the best in Europe. In an Elise it’s up there with Spa. Formula One returned in 2021, the same year LoT visited Zandvoort for the 15th consecutive year, running 3 great days.

Zolder – Zolder maybe in the shadow of its more illustrious counterpart at Spa-Francorchamps but nevertheless Belgium’s first purpose-built circuit is great it its own right. With plenty of history and some fantastic corners it really is a circuit thats worth visiting.

General circuit information: Zandvoort / Zolder

Noise limit: 88dB at 20meters & 105db static / 98db Drive By at track side *

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.

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).

Experience level: No beginners please

Unfortunately, we can’t accept anyone who holds a current ‘race’ licence on this event.

* Zolder has a procedure where all cars are fitted with a transponder so that any car that breaks the noise limit can be identified. As with most circuits if you break the limit you will be given one more chance only. Although the limit is now higher than in previous years (98db vs 95db) we recommend that you have a cat fitted (this helps to lower noise), this is a legal requirement and you should check your exhaust is working properly.

Itinerary: Registration – 7.45-8.25 / Drivers Briefing 8.35 / Driving Starts 9.00

PLEASE READ OUR TERMS & CONDITIONS, BY SIGNING UP FOR THIS EVENT YOU AGREE TO ACCEPT THEM.
