I saw this on twitter this morning, it really is hard to imagine how the drivers take in the pace notes and maintain their concentration.

This sounds like an article from The Onion. But the homeless guy's pace notes make perfect sense to me.

hahaha, that's good. pacenotes do sound a bit crazy at first. i'm especially impressed by the drivers that take their notes a couple turns ahead of where they are. i don't think i'd be able to keep that straight.

Exactly! And it is why us regular people go off cliffs and blame our GPS.

Can you get a sat nav that talks like a rally co-driver?

No, but I can change it to a female voice with a fake British accent (which my Filipina wife doesn't understand).

i've always wanted this. it's probably a safety issue. though i would settle for a nicky grist voice for my tomtom.

I'm not sure GPS directions that read "Flat over crest, 6 right, don't cut" would necessarily be appropriate for the public roads, although it would be fun....until it had you in the wrong spot on the road!

Thar would be brilliant in Portugal because some local co-drivers use "puta" (whore) a a warning for a danger or atreacherous bit like "flat out crest whore left"
