Fancy some twinning? ;)

Some R35 sport... hmmm... maybe I’ll bring my 32 instead...

You know that in the last few months they’ve changed the noise monitoring situation?

In what way? They've always had one of the lowest thresholds, annoyingly. I did know where the three mics were though. What has changed?

I’m not entirely sure but was warned it’s more strict than last summer ‘17 when my R32 just got away with how fast.

They have a similar system to brands, once the meter is tripped it takes a photo and there are apparently no second chances.

Back to the bad old Bedford days :(

There was a guy in an apparently stock ‘15 R35 who tripped it. Gutting.

If your mates’ 35’s aren’t stock then it could be a problem.

My 32 made consistently 83 dB driveby at brands but still tripped the 87.5 dB driveby at Bedford. Their measuring is about as consistent as my driving.

A completely stock R35 is virtually silent! But there's no such thing, everybody bungs a y-pipe on it at least. :lol:
My Akrapovic makes a bit of cold start noise, but hopefully nothing that will bother the meters. Besides, as I said, I know where they are.

Bloody noise Nazis, they're selling the whole lot to build houses soon anyway, let the drivers have some fun in the meantime!
I've never understood how anybody has been hurt by a bit of track noise during the day.

:lol: that’s not good news about the house building though!

Looking like I’ll definitely make this :) :) :)

Would be very cool to see how a 135 with racechip compares to the 140 on a straight. Would love to get some chase cam footage of some skids too!

I've managed to get two mates with R35s and one with a Cayman R to book too, should be great!
I'm not sure how my ego will take not having the fastest car there though... :lol:

Uh oh that’s not a good sign. Not sure ego is needed on a track day.

Surely as well, the fastest car doesn’t always mean the quickest laps?

Did you not spot the :lol: smiley? And no, fastest car does not mean the quickest laps. And quickest laps have no place on a track day.
