I think you will find David means over at the old driver training 
facility on Sutton road,
anyway my memory is that it is the residents of the Ridgeway near 
Queanbeyan that
complain loudly and often whenever any significant noise emanates from 
the valley below.

There are people living up on the Ridgeway with B&K instruments trying 
to find a way to shut down any motorsport occurring in the valley.

As to the problem - sounds like a good application for some shell 
scripts monitoring the serial port, cron jobs to report the data and the 
Round Robin Database (RRDTool) to store the data and present it nicely.
