They were trying to encourage new scrutineers. Most of the people passing had to be guided towards the faults, but some found them pretty quickly, from what I saw. The seat belts and loose wheel were pretty obvious, but the thing to note was that many people were afraid to touch the car and you can't scrutineer a car visually...
Like you Andy, I know that scrutineering is a hands on job and neither I nor any-one at the stand, as far as I know issued instructions to say it was 'Hands Off'. Would have been totally defeating the object of the exercise.....

Yep, it was nothing to do with those manning the stand - they actively encouraged people to give things a tug. I suppose it's the other cars at the show that people are told not to touch and it gives the impression that nothing should be touched.

Most importantly, I see you have new tyres for this season. Get you!

On this occasion no. The last time he drove it yes, but it learnt him how to drive in adversity. He had had it too good for too long. Elvington circa 2002......Only thing that is loose these days is the nut behind the steering wheel........
