Just wondering cause my DH & I enjoy the speedway & drags but know the noise is very loud for the kids. What age do you think it's appropriate ? Probably when they learn not to take
Ear plugs out if their ears ?

You can buy noise cancelling ear muffs specifically for infants...
I think my parents started taking us when my brother was about 3.

I've never taken our children although we are taking the children to Top Gear (mind you our children are aged 13 - 20) when it's here in March.
I used to go to the Speedway when I was young. I started going when I was about 8 or 9.

I read that as 'What age did your kids start taking speed and drugs?'
I think the school holidays are getting to me!

I haven't taken my son, it is not something I am in to. However we went as kids, I was probably around 8yo? My younger brother would have been around 5yo. Pretty sure he had ear muffs but the rest of us just got used to the noise! lol
I would definitely go the ear muffs no matter how old they are.

Both DP and I are heavily into gravel rally (I competed in one before I knew I was pregnant and wondered why I got carsick, oops!), this little chicken will be going to her first rally at about 3 months old. We've got some baby earmuffs for her, can't for the life of me remember the brand now!
