Last year, the Track Racing Commission announced the updating of the noise technical rules regarding the validity of the homologated silencer to be enforced on 1st January 2010.
The homologation period for all current silencers will expire on 31 December 2009. The use of these silencers will not be allowed after that date. A new measuring method called “2 metre max” (115 dB/A) has been used for testing the new silencers.
The FIM has homologated 3 different silencers that will be allowed to be used in the FIM World Championships as from 1 January 2010.
A forth producer of a silencer is in the process of homologation.
Understanding the importance of having the same technical rules in all Track Racing activity all over the world, all federations listed below will implement the FIM rules for their national Track Racing championships and league meetings in their country from 1 January 2010:
PZM (Poland), ACCR (Czech Republic), DMU (Denmark), FMI (Italy), MAMS (Hungary), SVEMO (Sweden), NMF (Norway), FFM (France), DMSB (Germany), SML (Finland), HMS (Croatia), AMZS (Slovenia), MFR (Russia), KNMV (Netherlands) and ACU/BSPA (Great-Britain).
Roy Otto, CCP President declared: “We are very satisfied that the Federations are also taking environmental and noise issues seriously. Many tracks can now be saved from closure. And some tracks that are closed will possibly re-open.”
Environmental issues are influencing our daily life more and more. This is also true in sport.
Therefore, the FIM and the Track Racing sport are now well prepared for the future.
It will also give stability to riders, organisers and promoters all over the world for many years.
The FIM noise regulation is now implemented in almost all Track Racing activities in the world. However the FIM SGP Commission has given a one year exemption to the 11 FIM Speedway Grand Prix meetings to be held in 2010.
