I'm thinking of booking onto this, been meaning to do Thruxtons for a while and it's not too far from me.

Quick question before I book on - I know Thruxton's db limit is low, I'm expecting to be running a cat with a Cobra catback. Does anyone have a few on whether this will be too loud for the day? The refund policy seems generous, but I'd still rather not rock up to be told no even if I do stand to get my money back!

@Kerian : You can check your car by popping along to a local Track Circuit and asking them to noise test it for you :thumleft:

Most will oblige =D>

I remember two guys rocked up in an Alfa 8C hire car and it failed the noise test. I guess a Cobra will be too loud if decanted but as you’re catted you may get away with it. That’s no help really is it?

Thanks guys - the old girl's not quite back on the road yet otherwise I'd have sorted a noise test. I spoke to Circuit Days, the response I got was basically that a refund is discretionary if I find it's too loud before the day, but they may be open to just moving the booking to another date instead of offering credit, which suits me.

I've got a day at Combe booked for next month so I guess I'll find out then exactly how loud it is! Until then I'm tempted to just book on given how quickly everything is selling out.

I'll do a bit more reading, if I do book on I'll update this thread :thumleft:

You can get a free app on your phone to check he dB just need to find an open space and hold the phone one meter away from the exhaust exit,I think static test is 4000 rpm.

Sod it, place booked. I'll figure out a way to get the car through noise testing. I'm thinking it should be fine - Chris if your toyo catback + ghetto decat was sub 90db, surely a cobra with a full cat will pass no problem. At least that's what I'm telling myself :D

Good shout on the app, I'll give that a whirl once the car's out the garage :thumright:

Oil change and new pads fitted today plus put a set of 18s on with 595s. However, just realised the 90db limit is static which may be an issue as mine tends to be in the 92/93 region.

What kind of db level does your GT86 normally reach when static tested Nigel?

I went to Thruxton last month with Racing Beat dual res and exhaust and tested at a surprisingly low 81db. Don't worry too much Nick. Despite the low limits, I normally find the results are quite generous there.
