    There are many rumors that the Mont-Tremblant Circuit has changed the rules, the good news is that nothing has changed and that if you never had problems, you should not have any! Maximum sound level accepted is 92DB. The regulations introduced in 2007 are still in force with the same rules, however, it appears that many of the offenders are repeat offenders and the management of the track addresses this situation. All groups are governed by the same rules without exception!

    So, there will be sound checkpoints in the paddock area and, if Tremblant employees have doubts about a car, it will have to go for a sound test (High Revolution with a sound meter) and the employee can give access to the track. However, if the car exceeds the limits on the track, it will be removed immediately.

    In addition, if a car receives a black flag in the morning, the owner will have the chance to make changes and will have access to the afternoon sessions (with the permission of the track). If a second black flag is given, the day will be over.
    Any black flag in the afternoon ends the day.

    If a driver receives a black flag in the last session of the day. This driver will be denied access to the next day or his next event.

    In all cases, sanctions are given by the management of the track and without appeal.

    Note that a driver is solely responsible for respecting the limitations and if sanctioned, will not be reimbursed by the Groupe Virages

Driving Process
