Scrutineering – The technical checking of cars by the officials to ensure that none are outside the regulations. F1.com
Race weekends in any motorsport generally throw up a lot of questions, controversial moments, and surprising results. Very rarely will you have a dull weekend. Yes, races can be unexciting but that does not mean that there is nothing to talk about both on-track and off-track. There are plenty of platforms for you to voice your opinion on – Twitter, Facebook, websites, blogs, forums etc. And this is now another one. Every Tuesday Scrutineering will focus on one particular team or driver, incorporating views from fans and those with opinions in order to take a closer look (i.e. scrutineering). This could be a driver who has performed particularly well in a race, or it may be completely unrelated to the race weekend just past. Of course, as it is a weekly feature it may not be related to any race weekend at all.
Another thing of note is, while The H Duct does focus primarily on Formula One and British Touring Cars, this feature is not exclusive to the two. The first post will be up on Tuesday 26th June and the team of focus is the eBay Motors Team (WSR) who currently compete in the British Touring Car Championship, fielding three cars driven by Rob Collard, Tom Onslow-Cole and Nick Foster.
So, I want to hear from you! Are you a fan of the team? What is it you like about them? What do you think of their season so far? Your answers don’t have to be question specific – you can share any opinions of the team you want. Any photographs you have of the team that you would like to share are also welcome.
