Safety
Whilst we race for trophies and titles we do it in a fun and safe environment. To make you are all safe we recommend that along with wearing safety boots, gloves and an hi-viz top you also need to make sure your vehicle is safe too.

For example exhausts should be fitted in such a way to minimise the risk of a marshal or fellow driver getting burnt, also wings, bumpers or exposed panels should not be made of metal, carbon fibre or GRP. All original roll cages must be fitted and all drive chain parts covered as much as possible and body posts should not be exposed either.

Exhaust

Any one attending should be aware that open or unsilenced exhaust systems will not be allowed and it is recommended to use a 3 chamber silenced exhaust meeting the general BRCA regulations. In technical terms the maximum permitted sound level is 81 dB, measured at 1 metre above the track and no less than 10 metres from the car. This limit is required not only for the welfare of your fellow racer but our host clubs and their neighbours and is akin to that seen at other motorsport events. Most standard cans achieve these limits.
