I think Simon has a point

Currently scrutineering is cursory at best,
clothing is checked and belts,
cut off switch, rain light,
fire extinguisher,
a rattle on the wheels,
check for leaks,
return springs, more the number than safe operation

done

this is what can be done in the short space of time allotted to one car
so the queue gets done in reasonable time


on the other hand at Brands Hatch
we had 2 severe accidents due to sticking throttles
everybode saw the Chevron at Paddock Hill, most did not see the melee in the last URS race.

trottle action is apparantly a very important point to scrutineer

instead the hologram on the belts get checked and belts get switched so its on the proper side as per regulation, a big thing in early 2017
yes, its in the regulation, and yes scrutineers were trained to point this out
this wastes time for no safety gain whatsoever
and also undermines competitor confidence in the rulemakers and rule applicators as they seem to have a problem prioritising issues
