The bizarre National Corvette Museum sinkhole incident has turned out to be the best thing to ever happen to NCM, considering all of the notoriety and attention it’s brought to the Bowling Green, Kentucky museum. However, all of that increased popularity may be the worst thing to ever happen to the museum’s neighbors.

According to the Bowling Green Daily News, residents of Clark Circle in Warren County, Kentucky, are fed up with the noise coming from the National Corvette Museum Motorsports Park. Apparently the track noise from the past two weekends of well-attended events at the park were the final straw for the Warren County City-County Planning Commission, which responded by hitting NCM with a $100 noise violation fine.

“Enough is enough,” said Planning Commission executive director Steve Hunter. “We could have issued the fine in the 25th hour, but we have been trying to work with them.”

Through attorney Charles E. “Buzz” English Jr., the National Corvette Museum has said it was surprised by the action, and has not yet decided whether it will pay the $100 fine.

In the meantime, NCM is working to resolve the noise issue.

“Our emphasis is to be a good neighbor. We are doing everything we can to mitigate the noise,” English said. “We plan to build a berm. When we do build something, it will be designed by acoustical engineers and it will have a positive effect.”
