    I'm sure SMSP have guidelines they have to follow in their license but given the state government owns the site how much power the EPA have I'm not really sure.
    I very much doubt the left hand is going to fine and take the right to court but not sure how things work with the ARDC.

    But yeah, I reckon they can be a lot more lenient than any privately owned track.

    If the "we were here first" argument didn't work for the Aborigines then it sure as shit ain't gonna work for a racetrack.

    For once I'm glad all my car makes is tyre noise at anything over 100.

    Hmmm IPRA U2L next year could be interesting then given how many hondas there are...
    I lack the open mind to believe in a lot of pretend concepts...like magic, or aliens, or reliable rotaries...also unicorns don't exist. Either you can accept those as scientific facts, or one of these Christmas's, you are in for a rude awakening when you discover Santa Clause isn't real

    Because the council who gets elected is being completely honest and the business really just wants to piss it's customers off for shits and giggles. An action is a formal thing, there's a hell of a lot they can do short of an 'action'

    Because this is so common in europe and the US there are some pretty neat automatic gps switches for the shouty exhaust on the porkers. You put in a ringfence for where the exhaust needs to be quiet (eg turn 2) and then just let it shut the flap for that 50 metres or so and quieten the exhaust down. Where theres a nimby rule theres a solution for getting around it.

    Some good changes this time around. New Kerbs on the outside of turns 4-5

    As per the super subtle watermark suggests, these are ripped from trackschools facebook page.

    This pic is standing at turn 4, looking at the correct direction heading to turn 5


    This pic is facing downhill on the exit of 5. As can be seen, the new kerb runs all the way down to turn 6


    The pic is facing the wrong direction standing at turn 5, looking back to turn 4. No more big drop off

    Looking forward to trying Wakefield again after these new corner/surface changes.

    Has anyone been there yet confirming these 5 Unicorn tenths?

    Lots of dumb fuckers driving up onto it just after they finished it last month bringing dust onto the track, so yeah, it was a good .5 second - slower.

    Did they not notice that it's serrated?

    Also, drifting appears to be well and truly back on the agenda there.

    Its been 40 degrees for the last 2 months. If I was only .5 sec slower in that kind of weather I'd consider that a win.

    Pyro was 80° F air temp at midday, the day after a front - probably quicker than the mid July race meetings typically suffered. Open practice today at Eastern Creek should be hell though. Mid to high 30s there in December and the tyres were just about rubber blobs after a few laps!

    Clem Smith died yesterday, don't know what input he had into Mallalla currently, you'd wonder if Benalla would expand the empire.

    Any word on the noise limits? They kicking cars off or giving warnings? Need to make a new exhaust for my race car and straight through is the easiest option.

    Might be easier being kicked-off for exhaust height! Minimum is 100mm off the deck down there under the new regime...probably most Cams sedan based classes, eg, sports sedans, would fail if they got into checking that.

    I got black flagged for being 103db when the limit was 90. They have a camera that takes pics if you ping it. Email gets sent to 3 big wigs. You get 1 or 2 warnings then youre out lol
