I was watching the most recent roadkill episode and they rented the track. I guess there is a decibel limit so they have to run the cars as quiet as possible in turn 5????? WTF. It’s a race track? They had one of the cars get kicked off the track for being too loud. Unbelievable. How can they run races with a race cars and a decibel limit?

Gotta love the progressive liberal asswipes that live close to the track. These motherfuckers move near these places and then start crying and bitching until someone caves to them. Need to cave (BASH) these assholes heads in. ERRR....I mean kill them!!!

Its been like that for as long as I can remember. I went for a motorcycle track day, bikes had to have factory exhausts. Lots of wealthy libs live in the hills around the track.

The Thermal track out by Indio is the same way. My father in law gets invited from time to time and one time he was going to bring his Porsche cup car and the person that invited him asked how loud it was he said its a race car so not quiet, he asked him to bring another car as they dont like loud cars there.

I watched that same episode and I was shocked. Then I remembered it's California.

Good on Finnegan keeping it to the floor after being black flagged for a lap+.

The wealthy libs are ruining this state.

No offense but where have you been? The Kalifornia libtards in that "exclusive" coastal area have had that great racetrack like that for a long time

It was like that in the late 90's-early 2000's when I was racing there.

We always had a different set of mufflers for Laguna, even in the 90's.

I’ve seen both GP and Superbike races at Seca. Those things are loud as hell. Did they get passes, or is this new?

Same reason the boats had mufflers clamped to the headers at Long Beach 30 years ago.

The couple times I have been to Laguna I never noticed noise being toned down, but they were big sanctioned events maybe that was the difference. When we did short course off road racing at Pomona, they had a window when they could practice and race. There were a few times practice was actually cut short do to the quiet time. I'm not sure how it is for the drag races there.

Reminds me of some people that moved next door to a long standing gun club in Oregon, then sued the gun club for too much noise. If I was the judge I would have tossed out their case.
