Noise restrictions apply at Wakefield Park.
No competition vehicles should be started before 8am except to unload and to be taken to scrutineering.
Selected vehicles will undergo a static noise testing procedure before being permitted to enter the circuit.
If, during use of the circuit, a vehicle registers above 95 dB(A) (measured at 30 m) the vehicle will be black flagged and removed. The vehicle will only be permitted to re-enter the circuit if it passes a compulsory static noise test. A mechanical rectification must be undertaken before the test is attempted.
If the test is passed but the vehicle exceeds 95 dB(A) at 30 m on a second occasion, it will be excluded from any further participation that day.
The sound measuring equipment at Wakefield Park is considered judge of fact and its readings/results are not open for discussion.
Cancellations – if you need to cancel your booking, please notify the Wakefield Park office by 9:00am on the day of the event you are attending. You will be issued with a voucher entitling you to entry at a future event (must be redeemed within six months).
