It goes without saying that Solberg is one of the best rally drivers around, but this video also makes you appreciate Phil Mills because I can't read that fast. I can't even listen that fast! Just when you were vomiting for the second time, around the 6:20 mark, Mills says "It gets faster now." ...faster? LOL!!! Yeah, I wanna eat some trees!

Video: Solberg is on steroids and Mills doesn't need to breathe. Rated avg 100% by 48,162 people.

This shorter Gigi Galli video isn't as good, but the last corner...mmmmm..

The pacenotes are hard for me to follow because not everyone uses the same system.

But for example there could be a note like this:
"3 right tightens 50"

Which, to some teams, would mean that there's a decreasing radius right hander coming up in 50 meters and you should take it in 3rd gear. I think that's a similar format to what these guys were using.

3 right avoid rocks outside over crest into 2 left avoid ducks inside

Heheh, you know the driver would be mad if he wasn't told about those pesky ducks. smile.gif

If I ever did a rally race I'd have to be the driver. I don't think I could withstand just sitting in the passenger seat shouting out pacenotes while the guy next to me has my life in his hands.

The concentration and comitment is insane, just throwing the car along the road blindly trusting the notes are right on what's on the other side of the hill.

There's three 'crests,' one 'tight', one 'cut' and one jump in the first 30 seconds, and it just gets worse for the next 15 minutes, which I find just unbelievable. I know a lot of people seem to watch rally videos for the spectacular crashes, like in NASCAR, but ... 15 minutes of this is way more exciting than a crash. Crashes suck.

How do the codrivers not get a headache? I get nausea reading in the back seat on a smooth highway, nevermind a rollercoaster like that.

I was going to say they have wheel-mounted paddle shifters so you wouldn't see them shift... but I don't hear him shift much either. Must be nice to have such a flat torque curve. The only lever there is the parking brake (handbrake) which doesn't get much use in this fast stage.

He's messing with something in the console between the seats too. I wonder what. Front/Rear torque split like in the consumer version of the car?

GiGi is shifting.

I remember hearing a driver say something to the effect of: if they look ahead and see a right hand turn and their co-driver says to turn left .... they turn left.
