Goodwood Trackday Saturday 7 April 2012

Planning for next year is underway and the date agreed with the Goodwood organisers is rather earlier this year with the event scheduled for the 7 April. That’s Easter Saturday which proved a popular day when used a couple of years ago. This advance notice is to let you start saving for the event or perhaps to suggest to someone that it would make a very nice Christmas present.

I think I have made you all aware in the past how important this event in the history of the club and how it is becoming increasingly difficult to finance both for the club as well as for you and therefore we intend to invite other clubs to participate but LMC members will be getting the entry forms before anybody else – so be ready.

To assist in making the event affordable in the face of increased track hire costs and to give more track time to participants, we intend to change the format very slightly. The day has always been run with groups of 5 cars on the circuit at one time which has allowed us a very high noise level per car of 105dBA but recently we have not had cars entering with sound outputs at that level so we intend to go for 8 cars on track which will require all cars to pass a 98dBA test (my Delta Turbo measures 86 dBA which is less than half this track limit). Last year our noise levels for individual cars and the overall sessions were well down on this reduced maximum so we do not anticipate having any problems next year.

 The increase to 8 cars will substantially reduce the waiting between runs and allow you greater track time and a more relaxed ‘queuing experience’ even though we intend to increase the maximum entry from 40 to 44 cars. I have been running at Brands Hatch this year with up to 24 cars on a 1.2 mile circuit, we will have 8 on 2.4 miles so you will still have a very safe not to say luxurious track day!

Best news till last – with the above changes despite inflation running at 5%, the price will remain the same as last year and don’t forget the extra track time on offer. Entry forms in December's VL!

Arggh! Not sure if I have the kappa running in time that it will meet the new noise limit. Have to try and find a compromise exhaust arrangement, the difference between 89db and 103db proved to be around 25bhp!

And not easy to plug one of the silencer thingies on the end of the "tail-pipe" as that exits in front of the rear wheel

Darn!

colonel sahib, i am not being able to imagine that you are shouting so loud!

I cannot think that any legal road going car cannot easily pass a 98 dBA test except perhaps the Caterham 500 which has an incredible noisy intake tract - the exhaust is fine!

Come on guys don't put off members unless there really is a problem.

Note to nyssa7 - your slightly not road car will still be extraordinary quick even with 25 bhp less!

see you all there (Gammas especially welcome!) - Brian Mills

Brian I can assure you I'm not trying
to dissuade anyone, it's one of best
events/days out of the year.

I was under the impression that Goodwood
was expecting to be able to increase noise
levels in the near future.

At my last track excursion the Gamma was
running a straight through exhaust and was
considerably louder than standard, I have
reduced it  to lower the number of car alarms
it was setting off.

I would quite like to experience a trip down to goodwood however for me it is not just a day out and more of a long weekend.
As with a lot of events they are listed but leave it upto your own devices to find somewhere to stay.
what I and probably a few of us more northernly challenged owners would require would be a bit of local knowledge on information regarding known  good accommodation that will also include a secure place to leave said motorvehicle
