Noise Sensitivity, Allergies and Respiratory Conditions
Kartatak Raceway Tuggerah, not unlike any other raceway throughout Australia or around the world, operates high performance motorised vehicles on a specifically designed racing circuit. Raceways consume a variety of natural, organic and synthetic products in the forms of petroleum fuels, oils and grease as well as some powdered products in the forms of liquid spill absorption and track preparation materials that may contain glutens. The use of these products in the operation of Kartatak go-karts can generate noise, fumes in the form of motor and driveline emissions and dusting in the form of fine particles that remain after spill clean-ups or track preparation work that may be expelled into the air while the go-karts travel around the track.
