Jim and all, we did try to enforce passes at Mid Ohio but that tent layout made it tough. At Indy, we had multiple cars in the same garage and again tried to draw an invisible line between cars. Personally, I hate those privacy screens. There's really nothing in a spec class you should be able to do that is a secret. We did require the passes be worn in sight this year vs just having one. At Daytona, I chased the same guy out 10 times before he managed to get a pass. Never could tell who he was with if anyone.
But, we get busy and people tend to wander in and out. Short of putting up ropes. etc, we do the best we can. Heck, 4th place was over in the main building at Indy and when we had out morning tech meeting, stuff was scattered all over the place. But, no one was there except tech staff. IMO, that was not well planned. I would have made room in the same area the other cars were being inspected and did his tear down there. That car being in a different location was not good. Very hard to secure.
We all made extra efforts this year to control picture taking in tech. But, with everyone using their cell phones, it's tough. May end up with no cell phones allowed in tech tear down area. Kind of like me taking pictures in the Sistine Chapel. With flash turned off, the guards couldn't stop it.
I will mention that when we have our debrief conference call.
