Noise Test Part 1

Sunday 27 Jan 2013 [17:17]
On behalf on Teifi Valley Motor Club we would like to thank Huw Jones for organising the team which included Huw Jones Chief Scrutineer and WAMC Eligability Scrutineer, Alun Morgan Environmental Inspector, Rob John Environmental Scrutineer and John Morgan Environmental Scrutineer.
 
We had an interesting afternoon comparing various locations and all crews who attended were given the opportunity to ask any questions to help them comply with this new legislation.
 
All test areas were mesured out with rope and a 0.5 meter and a 2 meter test were undertaken on each car.
 
Test 1 was on shale and would not be acceptable under current rules but was a test exercise.
