Are the passenger passes per session? Presumably these will also be available on the day?
A passenger pass has previously not been session specific and therefore you should be OK to jump in with anyone in any car in any session. Subject to their agreement you can jump in the car of course!

I'm not sure I'll be able to do this now I read the track rules and I'm pretty sure mine exceeds 98db, I tried to test it myself this weekend but turns out my phone caps itself at 80db so can't get an accurate result and I don't want to risk the money on it
What are you running for your car to be so loud :?: - Events Team
Decat and toyo back box and AEM intake I can't accurately measure the noise so don't want to risk it

The decat, if it’s a pipe and not a ghetto cat with the Toyo and the AEM will be too loud for most track days.

She's not really show stand quality got a few bits of visible damage and terrible cover up from the previous owner. It's a proper decat pipe from toyo too

I hope someone is doing a H&S Risk Assessment before they put up a gazebo #-o
Don't ask why I'm saying this, just suffice that it's a long, sorry and frustrating story. [-X
