AutoSport D&W #5 Sunday 24th June at ARC.

Postby AutoSport » June 17th, 2012, 2:25 pm

Crazy how time flies but here we are pressing on with the 5th Drag and Wind(ing) Event for 2012, carded for Sunday 24th June at ARC Car Park. Briefing meeting will be held on Wednesday 20th at MOSPORTT at Frederick Settlement at 7:00pm.

And we continue to listen, and once feasible, implement suggestions that come our way from competitors, spectators and/or the general public.

We have been averaging 60 entries per Event. We certainly do attract a wide cross section of competitors; this in itself is an intriguing factor that literally keeps us on the ball with the varying demands and ensuring that the different stages of the Event flow seamlessly.

We must thank our tightly-knit organization Team who work their butts off to keep improving the standards from Event to Event.

As indicated by direct communication to competitors, we cannot permit free-flow exhausts that are way too noisy for the conditions imposed by the ARC authorities, so all are advised that we shall be paying close attention to this from the coming Event. And anyone found in breach will not be permitted to run. No debate on this! We also advise that we do not welcome anyone in the pit area to play any type of loud music, since this adversely affects our communication to our competitors and spectators.

Great to see the challenges that are developing in the various classes and the points-standing taking on a most interesting position – some are now starting to learn that every 10-points that can be earned, can be a deciding factor at the end of the year.

We thank all of the sponsors, especially for the cash prizes for the Fastest in Class and Best Reaction Time, all of whom have been very supportive thus far, and also say a special thank you to Sherry Ali for her efforts in securing hampers as additional prizes for competitors, and door-prizes for our patrons.

Now see how this can affect everyone all around.

So if we can put a handle on noise at the event, we may help in minimizing it outside also.

May be looking at max 80 to 100 decibels. Remember many years ago, some Circuit cars came down from England, all had full exhausts which was the rule where they came from, ran just as fast.

Next point, when the Evo's first came here, the first "upgrade" was to change to 3" right through. Short while after big-time tuner came to set up John P's Rally car and made him go back to 2.5 with exhaust barrel and the car was faster and obviously quieter.

Borrow an iPhone, iPod, iPad and download one of the free "db meter" apps.

Having a SLOW ARSE ride with a loud and annoying 'fart cannon' is more stupid than almost anything else!
'cept the 'danraj' I was next to by a traffic light yesterday. I was driving my wife's car with my wife and daughter in the backseat, windows down and BBC on nice and quiet. Then 'bodow boy' pull up, watch across at my wife and crankup de 'hard(ly) pong'! Light turn green, we headed north and he headed back to Penal! :lol: :lol:

There will have to be! Otherwise it will be a case of "cause I fine it too loud" type thing. Hopefully someone trained in this kinda thing can do the testing.....

When some just cannot appreciate the fallout from one individual with an extremely loud car that can cause Karting, Solodex and D&W events to be affected, then we all have to be concerned whether the intent may be deliberate to sabotage these events.

Thus the firm position adopted. Talk done :twisted:

simple... someone bring a smartphone with a db recording app... they can measure sound fairly accurately to about 100db, with degradation in accuracy after 100db or so...

Some US states have noise pollution laws for cars with the upper limit around 95db, but the question is what should be the cut off limit ? For reference, here are the sound ranges courtesy of gcaudio.com, pay attention to the area that is in bold:



Environmental Noise

Weakest sound heard 0dB
Whisper Quiet Library at 6' 30dB
Normal conversation at 3' 60-65dB
Telephone dial tone 80dB
City Traffic (inside car) 85dB
Train whistle at 500', Truck Traffic 90dB
Jackhammer at 50' 95dB
Subway train at 200' 95dB
Level at which sustained exposure may result in hearing loss 90 - 95dB
Hand Drill 98dB
Power mower at 3' 107dB
Snowmobile, Motorcycle 100dB
Power saw at 3' 110dB

Sandblasting, Loud Rock Concert 115dB
Pain begins 125dB
Pneumatic riveter at 4' 125dB
Even short term exposure can cause permanent damage - Loudest recommended exposure WITH hearing protection 140dB
Jet engine at 100' 140dB
12 Gauge Shotgun Blast 165dB
Death of hearing tissue 180dB
Loudest sound possible 194dB

And ask Francis if he remembers this also...."Remember many years ago, some Circuit cars came down from England, all had full exhausts which was the rule where they came from, ran just as fast."

Yes boy, is only in trini some feel they can do what they want, but sorry, not at ARA @ ARC!
