Scrutineering for Vehicles WITH a Motorsport Australia Log Book:
A vehicle with a Motorsport Australia Log Book does NOT need to be checked by a Scrutineer.
The Competitor must, prior to the event, email the Event Secretary a filled copy of the two approved Self Scrutiny forms found here:
- Self-Scrutiny Checklist – Rally Road: https://www.motorsport.org.au/docs/default-source/covid19/scrutiny/self-checklist-rally-road.pdf?sfvrsn=f5c12b0b_11
- Event Entry Self-Scrutiny – Statement of Vehicle Compliance: https://www.motorsport.org.au/docs/default-source/covid19/scrutiny/self_statement-of-vehicle-compliance.pdf?sfvrsn=30153519_11
The Competitor must also email the Event Secretary a copy of the Vehicle Log Book including the vehicle details page and the event log.
Spot checks on competing vehicles will be made during the event/s by the Event Scrutineers. The Vehicle Log Book must be ready to be checked at any time during the event/s.
Scrutineering for Vehicles WITHOUT a Motorsport Australia Log Book:
A vehicle without a Motorsport Australia Log Book will need to be checked by an approved Motorsport Australia Rally Scrutineer. There are two options for Scrutineering:
Competitors are requested to have their vehicles scrutineered by a Motorsport Australia Regional Rally Scrutineer in the 2 weeks prior to the event. The list of Regional Rally Scrutineers is available at http://www.rallynsw.com.au/info/organisers/scrutineering/
The competitor must email the Event Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org to get a copy of the Event Scrutineering Form prior to attending regional scrutineering. If the correct form is not used, the vehicle will need to be re-scrutineered at the event.The Competitor is to fully fill out the form prior to visiting the Scrutineer (the Scrutineer will ONLY sign the form).
The Scrutineer will perform a non-contact walkaround of the vehicle and check of apparel compliance. If satisfied, the Scrutineer will sign the Event Scrutineering Form by using Covid safe hygiene practices and return the form to the competitor. The completed form is to be emailed by the Competitor to the Event Secretary prior to the event.
It is recommended that regional scrutiny be utilised where possible to reduce demand at the venue on the date of the event.
