Scorpion exhaust too loud

I've just bought a 200 Cup which will be my daily and occasional trackday car
It has a K-Tec exhaust manifold, sports cat and Scorpion non-res exhaust, it also has mild Cat Cams, K-Tec intake and a remap but I'm sure it's exhaust noise not intake that is the problem
For me it's too loud for daily use and I've booked a Bedford trackday for April and am worried I'll be too noisy there as well, it is possible to drive it quietly at low revs and part throttle but then what's the point?!
The obvious solution seems to be to replace the non-res pipe with a resonated centre section if Scorpion will sell me one, has anyone done this and will it make a big difference?

I’ve not done it. But it’ll make a big difference.
I doubt you’ll be under the noise limit with your current setup.

Not quite the same set up, as I had a scorpion decat and non-res system.

however I fitted a res Centre section and it reduced the noise / drone to make it a lot more tolerable.

whether you can buy them individually I’m unsure as got mine from a member here

The Clio is off to AW Motorworks in Essex for a bit of work in a few weeks, they have recommended fitting a bigger centre silencer than the Scorpion one as that is still quite small, certainly looks it in pictures on the Scorpion website
They are going to do the work and I'll let you know how much quieter it is!
