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

27 aug. 2020

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.

  • 8:56 This makes you appreciate and value even more the skills required to drive and especially *co-drive* a rally car at a high level. A form of art indeed.

  • When is the co-driver making his notes? Can he run the course before the rally race or is he just copying the notes?

  • why does the guy giving notes have to actualy sit in the car tho ? kinda makes it abit unsafe and wierd, coms and cameras would be alot safer and more acurate

  • After playing Dirt Rally 2.0 for a bit now, not that I'm super experienced and not that I'm saying its just like real life, but being in the zone you don't think....um things just happen....it hard to explain you its almost like your brain just turns off and the race just unfolds in front of you like your watching it from the outside but through your perspective. I hope that makes sense, like I said, it's hard to explain. It's hard to fallow when I just hear it but when I'm "sitting" in the car waiting for the GO! and the GO! comes and its like a light switch and my mind goes into the zone like stated above and the race just happens.

  • being the driver is so much easier than to read extra fast, the driver can be slow but the pace notes need to be quick

  • Cool, but kinda dumb to put him in there with about twenty seconds of instruction. Obviously he can't read shorthand notation that isn't his and he's never learned, what's the point. That's like putting someone who never played an instrument into the Boston Symphony with a french horn and telling them "let's see how you do!!"

  • 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.

  • 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
