Scrutineering Requirements

Scrutineering takes place at all of our events, and we require that your vehicle meets at least the following:

Drivers of vehicles without screens are required to have suitable eye protection (safety glasses / goggles etc) **NO EYE PROTECTION , NO DRIVING**

Front and rear tow points (suitable for removing a stuck vehicle, factory fitted tow points are not always that robust and may require upgrading)
Secure battery
Firm brake pedal
Working handbrake
Seat belts for all passengers, (no seat belt – no passenger, and no passengers on back of pick ups etc at any time!)
Secure fuel tank
Sealed fuel cap
Working horn
Working brake light
No loose items in / on vehicle ( i.e. spare tyres, wheel braces, jacks, tool boxes et
c. must be strapped down securely)
Fire extinguisher, must be within reach of the driver when wearing seatbelt, also must be in date and not fastened with cable ties!
Own suitable towrope, with shackles

Roll cage (if fitted) needs to be to chassis at a minimum of 6 points

Quad bikes are allowed at some events (event will list quads if allowed). All quad riders require full safety gear, including eye protection and helmet, arrive without these items and you will NOT be permitted to ride.


Normal driving times at all events are 10am until 4pm. We would ask that, as membership numbers have increased, you try to arrive earlier to allow scrutineering to be carried out before driving commences. A drivers briefing will be held prior to commencement of driving on each day. We appreciate that not everyone can arrive this early, so please be aware that you may have a short wait when you arrive before scrutineering of your vehicle is carried out, and your safety brief is given.
