Boasting a 1.85 mile circuit and its modern facilities, Castle Combe makes for one of the best UK Circuits for track days.
Castle Combe Noise Limits
When you book a track day at Castle Combe, your vehicle will first have to pass a static noise test to be allowed on track. The limit is 100dB(A). When out on track, an 87dB(A) drive by noise limit is measured and any vehicle recorded to be over the limit will not be able to continue. Generally, this noise limit is too low for race or non standard exhausts to pass so its not advised to try and use a vehicle of this type onto a track day.
