Your bang on Peter :notworthy: I think there just needs to be a real and considered strategy and I don’t think there is one, burying our heads in the tyre wall wont help. We have all witnessed the situation at Mallory which proves that it can be done with a thoughtful determined effort :twisted: !

I wonder who's telling the truth here, they must make a lot on the gate with the rally cross, a factor that is missing for a lot of bike club races

Posted on BHR Forum http://britishhistoricracingclub.co.uk/ ... ?f=4&t=654 by Jack Scrivener

Lydden Hill - Cancellation of our proposed September race date
Regrettably, the CRMC have had no alternative but to cancel the proposed race meeting at Lydden Hill on September 3rd and 4th, because a new noise restriction has been imposed on the circuit by Dover Council that has limited noise levels to 100db.
We are currently investigating alternative options elsewhere and will publish details here shortly.

But they have replaced it with Snetterton 200 27th-28th August.

Told you that would happen,it is enivitable that if noise limits are lowered any further,then the older outfits will be unable to race.There is only so far you can go in silencing them.Modern stuff is less of a problem as the engines are originally designed to operate at a lower niose level,and technology is progressing all the time,BUT not all of it can be retro fitted to the older bikes.
As for the VMCC,well I suspect their entry will be even lower than is usual for Lydenn,I love the place but there is no way I would drive 350 miles to the circuit,to be told my bike does not comply with the new noise limit.A friend of mine once got so frustrated with trying to get his A65 to pass the VMCC niose tests he fitted 2 shop bought Gold Star silencers,complete with stamps to prove road legal,and promtly failed the niose test!

Lydden is allowed a fixed number of full noise days a year. The owner is a rally cross man so obviously wants those days for his own sport, as we would,and holds back a couple of days for last minute meetings. All the other days ineffect have track day regs. I presume a deal has been done for one of these days.

The fact that the noise of the bikes was lower than the noise of the traffic going past for 24 hours a day was totally irrelevant, she was used to the noise of the traffic but the noise of the bikes on 2 weekends a year was a real nuisance to her.
Then isn't the answer is to run events most weekends so that she CAN get used to it? I know, it'll never happen. [brick.gif]
'Because' is a word to the whys!
