Common Questions

What is the difference between a Silenced Testing day and a Pre-Race Testing day?

A Silenced day has a noise limit of 105 dBA, whereas a pre-race testing day has a noise limit of 108 dBA (which is the same as race days). On a silenced testing day, there are fewer cars on the track at any one time (3 cars), whereas on a pre-race testing day there are 6 cars on track at any one time. 

Single seaters are permitted on silenced test days, as long as they comply with the noise regulations.
