Co-Driver

Rally co-drivers need specific equipment; pacenote books, pencils and stage books are important, but both members of the crew need FIA-approved clothing and helmets as well as a reliable intercom system that will accurately help reduce background noise. The world leader in this sort of rally communication and protection is Stilo.

A good co-driver is the difference between winning a losing a rally. A stage rally co-driver reads a set of pre-prepared pacenotes that tell the driver how sharp corners are, how long straights are as well as other notable road/stage features that are approaching.

    You only have to watch a stage of the World Rally Championships and you’ll see rally co drivers calling instructions to the driver. The co driver is not a passenger, they have a vital role in letting the driver know what the road ahead looks like, allowing them to get the maximum speed out of the rally car. 

    If you need rally equipment, or especially co driver advice, you need need to speak to a professional with 21 WRC wins with drivers like Colin McRae and Juha Kankkunen.

    To compete as a co-driver in the UK, you will have to apply for a licence through Motorsport UK. You will also need to be very organised, good at mathematics, time-keeping and preferably not suffer from travel sickness! You'll also need a rally driver who is willing to take you on as their co-driver!
    All recent world rally champion co-drivers use Stilo WRC helmets, owing to their excellent noise cancelling intercom systems built in to them, their comfortable feel and ultimate safety capability.
    Experience is one sure-fire way to become good, but you will need to be willing to learn, perhaps take some tuition from someone more experienced and ultimately develop your skills as a co-driver.
    All WRC crews consist of a driver and co-driver in the car. The co-driver is the "office manager" and ensures the car arrives on time at stage starts, service and the whole itinerary of the day. The co-driver also provides the driver with a spoken description of the rally stage ahead, including corner severity, speed, distances, and any areas of extra caution.
    The co-drivers role is pivotal in feeding the driver the information of the rally stage, to let the driver know of any areas of danger, but ultimately to feed the information in the corners ahead in which otherwise the driver would be driving "blind".
