Vehicle Sound Policy
Vancouver Island Motorsport Circuit
The Vancouver Island Motorsport Circuit is a year-round motorsport facility that is focused on driving, finesse, passion, skills and overall experience. As a courtesy to all guests, please note that we do not accept unruly behaviour, unnecessary noises or deliberate noise pollution.
Please kindly note that all vehicles with modified exhausts specifically for the purpose of deliberate and loud noises are not permitted at the Vancouver Island Motorsport Circuit. Our benchmark for noise is comparable to modern sports cars like the Porsche GT4 Clubsport, Porsche GT3 RS, AMG GT S, factory Ferraris, McLarens, Lamborghinis or Corvettes. These automobiles are specifically designed for those who seek excitement, passion, performance and driving exhilaration. The sound generated from these high-performance cars are also tuned by engineers for a fine balance of thrilling yet controlled sound.
We measure the sound on all cars on the circuit continually during regular hours of operations and have established a benchmark value based on the vehicles listed above. Our Class “A” sound monitoring system registers and records sound measurements daily during the period of time that the track is operational. This data is uploaded to our website weekly to ensure responsive and responsible business operations. Excitement is guaranteed; however, we want to respect all of our neighbors and those set values cannot be exceeded by any vehicle at the Circuit. Please make sure your vehicle is fully compliant to our safety and noise policies. We look forward hosting you for a day of excitement and fun.
We thank you for your cooperation.
