I'm just envisiaging myself screaming "I'm Drew!" down the phone Jerry Mcguire stylez and that panning out rather counterproductively for me :blush:Sneddy said:But you're drew... Did you tell them that you're drew? Surely that should be enough...

Yes. Deliberately. Because if I'm out there marshalling, the last thing I want is to be stuck at a post with a bunch of whiny little fucktards (not that you are, Match, but you know what I mean) moaning about how it's actually hard work and not just a cruisy bludge. When you're out on the circuit picking up bikes during a race, your life literally depends on the other people at your point. I don't want anyone out there who isn't 100% motivated and 100% serious about what they're doing, because it's my arse that could get run over if they goof off. It's uncomfortable, tedious and dangerous. I'm not going to sugarcoat that.MatchTheClown said:I remember that thread. He made it sound REALLY unappealing!
I'm just a knuckle-dragger, Drew. I don't make the decisions. Give 'em a yell, you might be pleasantly surprised. I'm pretty sure they are fairly hard up for scrutineers, particularly on the Thursday before the race, when they're trying to look over all the bikes.Drew said:Nothing to do with me, I only asked if I could get in as a scrutineer... FBS02 rightly pointed out that it might be a bit unlikely if I don't have any other scrutineering experience
Vic Titles scrutineering was a bunch tighter than trackdays, but from what I understand at top level they're also checking compliance to the rules as well as trackworthiness.gusso said:I have always wondered how scruteneering works in the top flight motorsports. The only stuff I have experienced are trackdays (kick the tyre, twist the throttle. get on out there) and f-sae tech inspection (can take up more than an hour, with a multitude of dudes going over every fastener).
I think it might be a bit more like "WTF? Why does the scrutineer want to talk to our engineers?"brent said:lol, Drew as moto gp scrutineer -
Drew: "nah mate, it's not ADR compliant....."
