Folembray – Tucked away in a forest with a house in the centre, Folembray is not a typical circuit. On first glance at the circuit layout, it looks very ordinary, but it is actually a very exciting drive. The trees are very close to the track but don’t let this put you off, it’s a wonderful circuit and safety has been improved over the last couple of years. It has a great mix of four fast sweepers and 2 great hairpins that entertains the novice and still offers thrills for the experienced.

Clastres – 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: Folembray / Clastres

Noise limit: 95db / 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.

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).
