Why this book will help you

The rally co-driver e-book is a book for go-getters. It doesn’t beat around the bush, but instead provides specific tips from experts. It is compact, helps you with its large number of checklists, and is very practical. It is not a textbook, but a treasure trove for anyone who serves as a rally co-driver. With tools to help you improve your techniques.

Expressly recommended: work right from the book and the ready-to-use checklists and samples that come with it. The best part is that the book will very soon pay dividends even if you only use a few of its clever tips and checklists. Sharpen your eye for detail, improve your technique, be better prepared, and enter the next competition even more calmly. This book wants to help you improve yourself.

That is why I have devised a compendium. This book. It is a book of instructions. Very specific, with many tips from practical experience to make you better than the competition. It is a course of instruction for rally co-drivers.
