Scrut should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
It has been going on for years.
One story I have heard from a couple of sources, goes back to the Torana XU1 days. Every year a XU1 was delivered 2 weeks prior to Bathurst, to the local Holden dealer, under the conditions that the car was not to be sold, and when asked for a road car for the post race scrutineering that this was the car provided. One year one of the scrutineers purchased an XU1 from a
Sydney dealer a few weeks before the race, and drove it to the track. Once the race was over, he told the powers to be, no need to go up the road to pick up the car from the dealer, as I have a 2 week old road car at the track. What a surprise to find out that the road car and race cars were totally different. A quick trip into town to collect the car from the local dealer, which surprisingly matched the race car. Good old Harry.
