Technical inspections are carried out on cars to ensure they comply with the relevant rules for that particular scale of car. This is to ensure fair competition and that the skill of the competitor is recognized via their driving and ability to set up the car – not by illegally modifying the car to gain an unfair advantage.
It is a driver’s responsibility to ensure their car meets the technical rules at all times. It is up to the competitor to read and understand the rules for the car they are driving. Penalties for failing technical inspections can include losing points from that meeting to suspensions for a set period of time depending on the seriousness of the offence.
