All can learn a lot from your video Eric. Notice how aggressive he is… constantly feeling the grip and working the wheel as he [b]charges [/b]through the course. He’s super tight on the cones and hits all his marks. It looks like you’re inches away from the slalom cones.
We can’t see Hal’s hands, but you can bet he’s working the car similarly. He has a nice tight line as well. Line is super important to fast times.
I think my #1 observation when I’m in the right seat with less experienced folks is – shyness. If the driver has good car control, I’ll try to break them out of their shell. I rode with Brendan P for a few runs, got him attacking the course harder, then he went out solo on his last run and knocked almost 2 full seconds off his best time. Right on!
Maybe some other coaches had a similar experience.
The MOV wasn’t accepted When I tried to attach it… I cued it up against Hal’s run, We seemed pretty even into the left sweeper, he got me a little out of the first left sweeper, a little in the kink, a bunch (killed me…) in the northbound slalom, and a little more in the right hander before turning South again, pretty much what you’d expect…
