Castle Combe Noise Testing

Post by Kata » Jun 16th, '20, 13:50

Hi All,

I've just been to a noise test at Castle Combe and my GSXR 1000 K5 with Akro pipe (baffle in) passed. It ready 103db at 10k RPM.

I think this is pretty close to what my cheapy noise tester showed.


Was pretty painless, just emailed them, they came though with dates and times and arranged a slot.

Might actually book a session now.

Cheers

Yeah I thought it was a bit high. Been much lower down the scale when I had it tested elsewhere.

A 1000 would be asked to rev to 5500 for an ACU noise test, a 600 has to rev to 7000.
To appease the local noise nazis, Combe test to ¾ maximum revs, so on a modern 600 revving to 16k, it has to be held at 12k for the noise test.. %-(

What Scotty said.
They are governed by NIMBY’s in the village that have had the council imposed planning restraints (like Pembrey, Thruxton and Donington, to name a few) and not ACU regs. It’s only ACU regs under a licenced event.
