SIR - Once again the Civil Service Motoring Club selfishly ruins the lives of residents of Hatfield and Welham Green.

Sunday's event and noise started promptly at the New Barnfield centre at 9.45am and continued to almost 5pm.

There was the constant sound of engines revving and tyres squealing as drivers attempted to drive round the course. Despite almost annual complaints to the organisers, CSMA and also to the landowners, Herts County Council these speedsters from outside our county continue to come to inflict misery on anyone trying to sit quietly in their back garden.

They also enjoy a CSMA subsidy as the event only costs each driver �28.

I have copied information from their website and magazine.

Interestingly the cars are supposed to be silenced, but the throaty exhausts I could hear bore no evidence of silencing, they sounded as loud as my car when the exhaust has a hole.
