Rally Stage Notes Explained! Zac FAILS At Calling Notes For Ken Block

The co-driver and pace notes are some of the most important elements of rally racing. But how hard could it be to just sit and read notes? We threw Zac in the passenger seat of my Cossie v2 during a test stage of the Southern Ohio Forest Rally to find out just how difficult of a job it is.

  • Ken *while explaining a call, takes hand off steering wheel to gesture a crest at 100+* Zac: so broken he doesn’t even see him gesture.

  • this blows my mind because the path is incredibly narrow and a gravel road. also even though the turns aren't too extreme, the change in elevation between turns can cause a loss of traction and a serious crash. i fail to follow the pace notes because they seem like another language entirely, however i can at least see that they let ken know how much power he can put into each turn and how much grip or room he has. which is absolutely amazing. top tier professional teamwork.

  • Excellent video! You’ve helped answer/educate the other half of rally spectrum. What the hell is the co-driver talking about and how/when is the driver responding?! Outstanding! Crew save is a good save. Be safe. Go fast!

  • Even knowing Ken drives 100% all the time on a stage if I were riding next to him I would still say something like “dude I had no idea you drove this hard. I can’t even see the notes. I’m sorry man. The whole planet is now blurry.” Honestly first time reading pace notes is with ken block would probably be the worst way of starting out. Way too fast lol

  • This is a little off topic.. artifical intelligence (AI) hypothetically would it be able to do this job better? I think this job would be perfect for AI, along side some sensors like a Gyroscopic sensor, GPS, Geforce, Etc.

  • How about a Video of Ken and Alex making the Pace notes , Just to see how they are created and at what speed they going to determine what to write for each new stage . . And does Alex watch where He is on the stage or just feel the turns and crests and continue reading more from feel then visual cues ?
