I have no intention of cheating and believe that the majority of others are the same.
The pre run scrutineering is for safety compliance only and should stay that way.
For our records to have any credibility a class compliance needs to be done on a vehicle that has set a record.
I understand fuel is very hard to check, other areas are not so hard.
I also understand that it is pretty difficult for someone to know the whole rulebook, I have a decent handle on the bike rules and no knowledge of the car section that isn't related to a Streamliner bike build.
I have a pretty good handle on the rule book
some of my "friends" volunteered me for motorcycle tech a number of years ago and I haven't escaped yet
I work as qualified motorcycle mechanic and a LVT (licensed vehicle tester) in Melbourne so I look at a LOT of motorcycles
I also do motorcycle tech once a year at speedweek on the Bonneville salt flats, for which I am well reimbursed
There have been some discussions about running an impound at the DLRA meeting
It sounds like a good idea, but it needs a lot of staff who really know what they are doing and know the rule book back to front
They also have to spend the whole week there
Gasoline is not hard to check, we just need the appropriate instrument to do it. $$$
However as we do not have an event gasoline........
Capacity is not hard to check, and again we just need the appropriate tool. $$$
Certifying a motorcycle for a record is mainly about knowing the rule book
none of it is hard, it's just time consuming
This year I have time, next year I hope to have our lakester back out on the salt so I may not have as much time
I believe we do already have a queue jump pass running for guys who are doing full time jobs
