Spotters Like Nascar?
« on: February 13, 2020, 02:16:49 PM »
Just wondering...Is there a USTA rule that prohibits electronic communication between a "spotter" and a driver in Harness Racing during a race similar to how Nascar operates?

Good drivers don't need instructions.  Bad ones can't follow them anyways.

Thanks for your opinion but the question was if it was legal. Never mind, I will look it up myself.

Laugh all you want fat for brains but I couldn't find any rule that prohibits it. The only rules I could find was drivers talking to patrons or other drivers during post parade.

Mike I've always wondered the same thing.In big races I would think it would be a help or any race for that matter.

Suppose we ask ourselves why this is not allowed.  The answer likely lies here. tmbz1

Mike..how about, say...the North America Cup in Toronto for a million and say..two of the ten drivers wired directly..and say..driver with better horse pulls, and yells 'go' via earpiece to the driver of other, lesser horse to also pull right behind him and block all traffic.  The days of 1 and 1a fading fast...replaced by the days of 3 horses entered by same trainer in same race.
BUT WHO NEEDS SAME MULTI ENTRY TRAINERS ANYMORE..when two separate trainers can cut their own deals and execute via driver mics and headpieces...two horses and connections in cahouts and both collect $$.

anyway, doesnt sound legal but technology def. avail.
*
Or maybe all 10 wired up..and seconds after race judges talk directly to them, while still in bikes, to check on any 'driver complaints' and/or 'driver-based inquiry launched'...Hell, judges could talk DIRECTLY to potential dq'ed driver. 'why did you go inside pylons'..'why did you slow race down on front end to a crawl'....more driver responsibilty and accountability, a good thing

   Some of those guys would then be forced to construct an answer, while driving a smart race.  See how difficult that alone is?  Imagine how easy it would be to jam a signal or just send in your own as well.  Gotta be a reason this isn't occuring, and corruption prolly tops the list, followed by safety 2nd.
