Scrutineering

Pre-race scrutineering will take place 5 minutes before your race. You must present your car race ready and have your transmitter with you. After your car has been approved by the scrutineering team you will not be allowed to return to the pits. You must wait until the current race finishes before putting your car on the track and going to the rostrum.

Your car will be checked against the following rules for your class:
Battery voltage.
Tyres.
Motor.
Ride Height.
Minimum weight.
ESC in blinky mode (if applicable).

Additional checks may be made in post-race scrutineering.

Marshalling

Once your race is complete you must take your car and transmitter to the post-race scrutineering table before going to your numbered marshall point. Please wear the provided hi-vis jacket whilst marshalling. Please marshall even if you DNS or DNF. Failure to return your car and transmitter to scrutineering or leaving your marshall post unattended will mean you lose your time for that round.
