This report analyzes the various direct impacts (costs and benefits) of reducing noise from motor racing in Illinois. Two alternative assumptions about the magnitude of noise reduction are made. First, it is assumed that noise is reduced in accord with the requirements of R75-11. Next it is assumed that noise is reduced to conform with the stricter limitations imposed by Rule 201 of the Pollution Control Board's Sound Emission Standards and Limitations.
