The important thing is ONE spotter. If I’m spotting someone and another person jumps in, I’m out. I’m not going to compete and cause confusion.
Watching the latest Grand Tour episodes, they were spotting eachother through some muddy rocky stuff and using terms like "left side down". I assume that means turn driver, but I'd never heard it before.
Yup, common rally/race language, ”left down one”, right down 3, etc. Works well with a co-driver more so than a spotter imo. Anytime you have a spotter moving from facing a vehicle to inline with the vehicle, left & right start getting distorted as muscle memory takes over.
