Scrut should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Have been tested numerous times at the track as an official.
The last 4 AGP's (including every day in 2018), Sandown, Phillip Island
and last year at the Shannon's at QR, the same day the Frenchman became ill (cough, cough).

You guys have both been out of the sport for several years and the number of tests has increased especially at GP & Supercars lvel events as well as Shannons rounds.

ASADA has also turned up to several events on both 2 & 4 wheels I have been at in recent years but many wouldn't realise they're there as they keep a low profile and at least in 2 wheeled events caught a few, not alcohol either.

Paul isn't trying to justify anything.

CAMS have only had a CATO procedure since 2015, from memory.

I've personally been in charge of two club level events that had Alcohol Testing done, plus seeing them at all the major events like Nationals, F1, Supercars, 12 Hour etc.

As a competitor I've seen more testing in the last couple of years than in the previous 18. I'm NSW based and havent seen anyone at our state meetings but have been breath tested at both VIC state meetings, I've been to and the Bathurst 12hour last year.

Interestingly the same tester at all 3 events, is there only one approved tester in CAMS?

Looks like they finally pulled the finger out and got serious.

Doesn't surprize me with GP & Supercars, as the OH&S requirements at those events are more to th front than any other event you may work at.

I suppose the test is done in morning?? They should random runs over the course of the day just to make sure those in senior positions are not enjoying the additional freedom they have in walking around the course, especially the GP. Not the best look when you see 3 seniors sitting in one of the trackside bar area, with what look like their guests...

I've seen testers walk in the front of a garage and mechanics/team members walk out the back...

Without full team lists to check against, you're only testing those too slow to "go missing"

When ASADA turns up the tests are usually done later in the day but they're not looking for someone who had a couple of bevies the night before but for more performance related stuff and as I mentioned earlier have nabbed a few in 2 wheeled racing in recent years.

In related news, current Australian Top Fuel champion enjoys a spoonful of methamphetamine in his morning coffee.
Wonder if he's been following the same regime when race meetings are on?
