Default Education After Incidents

At Racers360 we have been rolling out a new incident analysis partnership with different organizations and have already seen the amazingly positive impact it can make. We started testing this with the CSRG series and have been starting to work with more and more organizations. I would love to hear what has potentially worked well at your organization so we can continue to improve this whole part of our sport.

Also, if you think a partnership at your local organization would work well please let us know. We would love to extend this program out and help drivers continue to learn and improve in an obviously difficult but extremely valuable (in terms of an opportunity to learn) moment.

https://racers360.com/racecar-driver...cle-24June2019

As always look forward to hearing everyone's thoughts and feedback!

Dion, how about education before incidents?

I do think that is even more important, the biggest reason we started Racers360 was to make high-quality coaching that is personalized to a driver affordable. Not all drivers see the value in that quite yet (we hope they will soon!) and we talk about coaching at all times in everything we do, but we noticed very little has been spoken in regards to handling incidents and what to do, so this article is just in relation to that.

But, coaching before is critical in our belief. We have seen many accidents that could have easily been avoided with some of our coaches help that is for sure!

It involves a baseball bat, cinder blocks, and a night-time one way boat ride off the Jersey Shore.

Dion - sorry, back on track.

Near miss and error remediation approaches that avoid naming, shaming, and blaming have been useful in other spaces/industries.

If the intention is truly to reduce repeat incidents then that will likely perform better than a punitive ban sans useful intervention.

haha yes exactly. Incidents happen - reviewing them in a calm, analytical way that creates actionable coaching plan for a driver is the single best way to prevent repeat incidents. Blaming, shaming and especially name calling should be completely avoided, that is a big reason why a third party that is only there to help drivers learn is so effective. Need to take emotions and potential politics out of it.

Totally agree. Repeated general advice at meetings and handing out 13s doesn't appear to have a big impact on bad risk:reward decisions. God knows I've made a few myself (cue gonorrhea jokes).

Having said that, I'm still going to send Luigi a bag of dicks.

You normally hand deliver them! I am also the founder of the Dicktona Racing Team - yes this is an actual thing and you can look for it on Facebook!

Lastly, Dion is a professional so lets try to keep it classy. Peter and VR are used to us.

Dion - I apologize for Matt as he has recessive Canadian genes. When he hits the maple syrup too hard we get threads like this.

You should see him drive with a maple syrup hangover!

New SPC record, thanks to a great tow from Todd Lamb!
