Head's up everyone! PIR let us know that there will be a small change happening regarding sound monitoring at the track next season.
Sound monitoring locations will be mobile with undisclosed locations to catch violators.
You really don't want to get that black flag in a race this upcoming season. The sound limit at PIR continues to be 103dBA when OMRRA is on track. So plan accordingly! (Also, our understanding is that this will also be true at all track days so might want to look at your track bikes too).

For free entry to OMRRA and the best seat in the house, they always take corner worker volunteers. You’ll receive free lunch and after-racing beverages at the trophy ceremony.
