chalket, I get into some pretty good flaming here, but my general rule is never to carry a grudge from one thread to the next. I might rip you a new one in one thread, and award you 3 Interwebs for the funniest comment in the next. It`s a lot more fun to start fresh.

Angie, the Pike`s peak road is open to the public, and it hasn`t changed in decades. If you don`t already know it like the route from your bed to the bathroom, you shouldn`t be racing up it.

The only thing I can think of that would be worse than driving that road in a race would be driving that road in a race with someone yammering at you the whole time.

Given the complexity of the Pikes Peak hillclimb, it would make sense to have a co-driver along the same lines as rallying. The co-driver handles navigation so the driver can focus on driving. Essentially, they tell the driver what`s going to be coming up after the next bend or two - which way does the track turn then, how severe the turn is, whether there are rocks on the edge of a turn, etc.

Here`s some in-car video showing what a rally co-driver does.

Rallying with a "passenger"

Which is a part of the reason why it`s done there.

There have been surprisingly few deaths in the Pikes Peak hillclimbs, in all the ~100 years of it.

I`d count most of the rally tracks used for Group B as more stupidly dangerous than Pikes Peak. They were dangerous for cars with ~125hp, when the tracks were established. For cars with ~550hp, they were mental.

Who are the dumb fu ckin` rednecks yelling "YEEEAAH!" as the car flies off the ridge like the very possibility of witnessing a horrifying death is enough to get them to ejaculate?

passenger = navigator
Rally racers have navigators for the quick turns since they go so fast, clearly he didn`t do his job so well this time around

I think the passenger would be a co-driver who`s meant to tell the driver: "don`t go too fast around this corner because you might fall off a cliff"

I`ve always thought this was without question the stupidest place in the world to hold a car race. He got off easy. I`ve driven that road, and there are places where you can fall for a f***ing WEEK!

Also, "driver AND passenger?" WTF do you need a passenger for? So you won`t die alone?
