At Smoothline our mission is to produce quality Stage Notes (or pacenotes as they are otherwise known) that empower you to enjoy each event by safely performing to the best of your potential. Creating good Stage Notes requires a blend of art and science as well as an in-depth knowledge of what it takes to safely go fast. Smoothline Stage Notes are built on the balanced input of both a professional driver and co-driver. Steve Glenney & Bernie Webb have more than 5 decades combined experience in rallying at all levels, having excelled in both Tarmac and Gravel events.
Steve & Bernie have each developed a life-long dedication to evaluating surface changes, corner progressions, terrain changes and much more. Their attention to detail, understanding of how things play out at speed and ability to present information in an accurate and consistent manner forms the foundation Smoothline is renown for. This, mixed with their dedication to helping teams develop their own knowledge and hone their ability to perfect the driving line through each corner and over each crest, creates a truly worthwhile service.
At Smoothline our philosophy is to include the information that’s important and leave out what’s not, reducing the need to process excess information and make critical decisions at speed. Our customers regularly comment that Smoothline notes give a driver the tools to “just listen and drive”.
The co-driver’s needs are given equal attention with the use of intuitive terms, symbols and timing cues. Every line and page break is chosen carefully, making smooth, timely delivery of the notes achievable. Frequent “cumulative distance” measurements are recorded in the notes along with visual landmarks. These give the co-driver confidence they are calling the correct notes and helps minimise any time spent “off notes”.
