Scrutineering (Tech)

People with a passion for cars can deal with the latest technology of formula cars or the basic mechanics of classic production cars if they become Scrutineers (Tech Inspectors). Every car that is raced must undergo an annual technical inspection, which gives the Scrutineer an opportunity to talk with the owner or crew and really look the car over. The driver’s safety gear is also checked at the same time. At each event, the Scrutineer must verify that the annual tech has been done and issue an event tech sticker, allowing the driver to go on the track.

After an on-track incident, the Tech crew must examine any damage. After each on-track session, the cars may be impounded and spot-checked to ensure compliance with the car specs or event rules.
