FORMULA One car testing will continue at the Imperial War Museum in Duxord despite complaints from residents.
South Cambridgeshire district council has announced that it will allow five days of testing to go ahead at the museum in 2010.
This follows a council investigation into the noise created by initial tests last year, which led to a number of complaints from local people.
Cllr Sue Ellington, environmental health portfolio holder, said, "We've worked closely with the museum to reach a balance between their needs and the rights of residents.

"By putting conditions in place, we are aiming to limit any inconvenience to local people, give them plenty of warning about future events and prevent any escalation in noise or frequency. We will continue to monitor testing and will review the conditions if necessary."
The conditions include a maximum of 180 runs to be made up and down the runway each day, and that only one test day can be held per month with a minimum break of three weeks in between each session.
