lets get the zero bikes from the isle of man to do some races istead of the time trials, surely this would be ideal short track and would test the bikes in a different manner.

Bet John McGuiness and Micheal Rutter would be up for that

And it will stop all the kill joys who bought a house knowing it was next to a race track !!!!

This is similar to the residents around Croft and the developers that ruined Assen.

What a shame,I saw John Cooper and Ago dice it out at Mallory many moons ago(no pun intended).Aintree is another circuit were new residents have got their own way, dictating start and finish times, one oil spill and you lose a race.

I was there as well, perched on top of an advertising hoarding at gerrards. Has to be the best race of all time! I think it was at the meeting that Hailwood was trying out the new water cooled Yamaha. (it seized). Do you remember that race direction asked for all motors to be silent whilst a marching band went up and down the starting straight obviously MV suddenly forgot to speak English the bellow of the 3 drowned out everything!! So funny. Happy memories....sorry about Mallory great circuit great memories

People should not be allowed to move next to a race track and then complain about noise. Imagine the outcry if this happened for the ringing of church bells or some other PC activity.

Furthermore, the refusal of the landlord to reduce the rent and the sudden enforcement of the noise regs in full by the council stink of the chance to make money by property development...

I live near Mallory and this decision stinks. All around Leicester there are brown signs pointing to Mallory, i.e it's considered a place of National interest which SHOULD mean that the council help maintain it's appeal.

Brands suffers from resident'itis as well.

When it and many other tracks were established they were fields in the middle of nowhere but of course villages and towns grew up round them, many as a consequence of the income and employment from the tracks.

Of course no chance of an F1 GP ever again despite the road network being far superior to Silverstone.

British Motorsport contributes to the economy, we are global leaders and most of the expertise begins with enthusiasts. That valuable resource is gradually being lost because of the interloper, PC, noise police.

I could almost understand the complaints if these people couldn't hear themselves singing in the Church Choir but they are usually cutting their effing grass with their objectionable, whining electric mowers or watching Eastenders omnibus!

NIMBY'S!

I don't really believe that the prime concern of local residents is noise.
I believe that their REAL gripe is heavy traffic and traffic queues on race days which prevents their easy movement around the neighbourhood.
But, the visiting traffic is using public roads and breaking no laws so the residents have no legal recourse against them.
Therefore the residents are using the noise restrictions to achieve their goal of eliminating visiting traffic from their neighbourhood.
Yes it is true that the traffic is an inconvenience to them and effectively restricts their own vehicle movements BUT, they were aware of the circuit when they chose their home so their inconvenience is self-inflicted.
It is as ridiculous as people living in a sea-side town complaining about day-trippers.
