It is important that everyone understands why allowing animals at motor sports events poses a considerable hazard. The hazard is not just to humans but also the welfare of the animal itself. The event promoter has a legal duty to acknowledge and eliminate hazards, those that cannot be eliminated must be properly controlled. To allow animals into a race meeting would be negligent.
The RSPCA have conducted a campaign to reduce the noise levels of fireworks as it is widely acknowledged that they do cause damage to the hearing of animals. The current unacceptable noise level of fireworks is lower than levels recorded at drag strips in the UK.
Whilst it offends some people not to bring their animals to a venue, it is the only responsible way to act. In addition to the above there are several instances every year of people being bitten by animals, predominantly dogs at events, clearly animals often react in this way for some reason which could be linked to anxiety as a result of noise, fumes and conditions, even if you are only located on a campsite some considerable distance away.
