Club Scrutineer Vacancy

We have a vacancy for the role of Club Scrutineer

Are you able to help us out at trials. Do you have a reasonable mechanical knowledge of Land Rovers and understand the trialling regulations. If the answer is no but you would like to give the role a try, don’t worry, there will be plenty of help and advice to get you going. Just get in touch with Mark and he will let you know what is required. There is no liability with this role as you are purely there to check vehicles are eligible and safety components function (brakes, seat belts etc.) The onus is always on the driver to present the vehicle in a safe and compliant condition.

We may look to get two scrutineers one for Tyro and RTV and one for CCV.
