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.

What A-Holes that cheer as the car tumbles down the hillside. What if they had been severely injured or killed, you cheered that... really? This isn't a monster truck race you stupid inbred butt-hole

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.

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.

[quote">Also, "driver AND passenger?" WTF do you need a passenger for? So you won't die alone?[/quote">

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"
