My home in Goulburn is 10km or less from the Wakefield Park track and the noise is just audible most days when I am standing on my back veranda.
The highway noise is much louder and when aircraft are using the Goulburn Airport, particularly the skydiving planes, they are much more audible and annoying.
As a regular visitor to Wakefield Park I have seldom found the noise at the track anywhere near the levels of some motor sport circuits I've visited.
The planes that buzz overhead seriously add to the noise levels at times and in the midst of a large field motor race, I often find myself distracted by low flying aircraft like the two that made repeated passes over the circuit on their way to and from the airport, which is only just over the hill from the track last weekend.
Sometimes too, large groups of motorcycles on the Braidwood Road add substantially to the noise emanating from the general track surrounds.
Mr Thomas, who is unhappy about the noise from Wakefield Park, which has been a regular occurrence for the past 25 years, should also be disturbed by the groups of Harley Davidson and other large motorcycles that regularly travel on mass along the Windellama Road on their way to and from Nowra.
Wakefield Park users contribute millions of dollars annually to the Goulburn economy and provides work for dozens of the city's citizens employed in the hospitality industry. Wakefield is a major contributor to Goulburn's economy.
