Interesting to see the comments on:

Fatigue
The risk of falling asleep
Difficulty of navigating alone
Reading a road book in the dark

Welcome to our world!


Of motorcycle entrants that is  :)

Yes however you have to remember that the navigator also is part of the team to get a car up the hills by shifting their weight or bouncing.....  :)

Trials are in fact two entirely different events for Motorcycles and Cars....

Each requiring different skills and methods to achieve the same results...  :)

Indeed, there have been few times when a pillion might have helped with some rear wheel grip!

As an "outsider newbie" would I be allowed to voice my opinion?

I feel the Government will soon be reducing the virus threat level so in another month or so we should be back to some sort of normality, how the governing bodies deal with the restrictions is hard to say, but they have to err on the side of caution but I agree passengers are an integral part of the sport (for cars) whereas bikes have to meet a different challenge on the same route.
