Raceway Park will enforce noise levels at the track
Raceway Park has to adhere to maximum noise levels on its Saturday night programs.
All drivers have to adhere to the noise level
guidelines. Most Corvette Challenge drivers will have no issue with the noise
levels, however we need to ensure that you are aware that noise levels will be
monitored. Modified Corvettes with aftermarket exhaust and headers will pass the
test. However, if you think you car is too loud, you should test it to ensure you
are not louder than the maximum allowed noise levels. Many of our drivers have been
tested and have passed the noise level restrictions. Following is a message from
Raceway Park as well as a link the Raceway Park official notification.
A message from Raceway Park
The decibel (DB) level will be measured in the following way:
The car will be 100 feet away from the meter (the meter is a $45 Radio Shack analog
type). The driver will bring the RPM up to 5500 and hold it for 5 seconds and then
"gun" the motor two times. The test will be done 2 times. This will give
Raceway Park a representative DB reading on your car. It should not measure over
90 DB. If your car is over 90 DB at the tech inspection booth, you will not be able
to race. Also, if the management of Raceway Park feels your car is too loud and
measures the DB level on the track it cannot be over 96 DB under load (launch or
burnout). If you go over the 96 DB limit on the track, which is done 100 ft to the
side of the car, you will not be allowed to race.
There will be no exceptions to the DB limit on Saturday or Friday nights.
