How to become a WRC co-driver
Be fit and light! Every kilo counts.
Have a good stomach and do without that coffee in the morning. (Everyone still throws up at some point.)
Become an early bird. Rallies begin at the crack of dawn.
Together with the driver, compile and hone your pacenotes – your playbook – until you have a precise code for every type of turn.
Learn to keep one eye on the course and the other on the pacenotes.
Have basic mechanical skills.
Create a network for yourself: any information you can get on the courses, etc, is worth invaluable seconds.
Be fearless: you’re going to have accidents and there’s not always something you can do to avoid them.
Be modest: the driver is always going to be the hero, not you.
