Quieter Please ! - We are some of the hundreds of people living within earshot of the Powerbuilt Ruapuna Motor Racing Facility in Christchurch, New Zealand ... In 1999 our City Council very kindly gave the management of this facility, permission to operate for 365 days a year. Previous to this rule change the local community and Ruapuna had lived in relative harmony - they were allowed to operate 120 days a year, which gave us a fair amount of peace and quiet ...there are many, many weeks when we are exposed to Noise seven days a week, and on some of these days we are exposed to noise from nine in the morning until, literally, past 11 at night.

Noise Off, New Zealand - promoting the reduction of motor vehicle noise emissions throughout New Zealand for the improvement of the heath & well being of our communities & the quality of our environment.
