Airfield Gets Green Light For F1 Testing

1 Mins read

After months of uncertainty Duxford Imperial War Museum will be allowed to be used for F1 straight-line testing again this year.

South Cambridgeshire District Council had been looking in to complaints from some people regarding the noise, but after noise level tests had been evaluated they gave the green light for testing to resume in 2010.

The council confirmed that only one test can be held each month and there must be at least three weeks between each test. There is also a restriction of 180 runs up and down the runway per test and at least five weeks notice must be given to the surrounding villages.

Sue Ellington, environmental health portfolio holder, said, “We’ve worked closely with the museum to reach a balance between their needs and the rights of residents.

“By putting conditions in place, we are aiming to limit any inconvenience to local people, give them plenty of warning about future events and prevent any escalation in noise or frequency.

“We will continue to monitor testing and will review the conditions if necessary.”

Renault used the facilities for straight-line testing on a number of occasions in 2009.
