What a disgrace !!! Why did these people buy houses close to the circuit if they wanted peace. It's the same as people buying homes in the countryside & complain about the animals making a noise !!! (pathetic).
I wonder how many more of our great circuits will get the chop.
I certainly hope that Malory Park can still stay open.

HERE IN PLYMOUTH A PROPERTY COMPANY WAS ALLOWED TO PURCHASE AND RUN THE ONLY AIRPORT SERVING THE CITY . NEXT CAME RESIDENT COMPLAINTS , THEN GUESS WHAT THE PROPERTY COMPANY BOWED TO PUBLIC OPINIONS AND VARIOUS NEFARIOUS SURVEYS . GUESS WHAT THE PROPERTY COMPANY IS NOW BUILDING HOUSING ON THE OLD AIRPORT . LOSS OF PERMANENT JOBS FACILITIES AND INCOME TO THE CITY . SOUND FAMILIAR ? TWO QUESTIONS WHY MOVE NEAR TO A RACING TRACK IF YOUR DELICATE EARS DON'T LIKE THE SOUND OF COMPETITION MOTORS , AND WHO IS SET TO GAIN IF MALLORY CLOSES DOWN . YOU COULD DO WORSE THAN TO FIND WHAT COUNCILLORS DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY HAVE AN INTEREST IN REDEVELOPEMENT OF THE SITE . PARANOID ? NO JUST SEEN IT HAPPEN SO MANY TIMES BEFORE .

Before you blame the locals you need to know why they complain. Mallory park management totally ignored their curfews. Like running more noisy days than agreed and allowing loud drifting cars on track late at night along with loud music being played when it should not have been so if. It does close down then They only have themselves to blame. The locals do not have an issue worth the agreed noise but they do have an issue with everything that goes on that shouldn't be.

Pa55word - you tell me why there should be ANY restrictions on when or what they do on the circuit.
Mallory Park opened in 1956. How many of your 'locals' lived there then?
The same thing has happened at Croft, Thruxton & now Mallory - townies who have made a bob or two moving out to the idyllic countryside only to find it isn't all just peace & quiet, that things actually go on.
Well stuff 'em.
If you don't like aircraft noise, don't live near an airport.
If you don't like motor racing noise, don't live near a racing circuit.
Simples!

You're correct to a degree but when it's after 11 and sometimes in the early hours of the morning it's not acceptable. Are you saying that type of behaviour is acceptable. Even airports can only fly between certain hours.
