Default What do you call this Guy on the race team?

What do you call the guy on the race team Who does:

Measures and documents the hot tire temps and pressure On pit lane?

Helps to create the alignment settings.

Document everything. So you have a good baseline next time you get back to that track.

Does all the fuel duties. Monitoring the fuel level before and after every session. And strategy for race day?

Does all the Shock absorber work.
Designing, calibrating, on track adjustments in shock maintenance?

Does the data collection Chores.?

Designs all the chassis / suspension compliments. Fabricates all the pieces required. A-arm modification. Spindle mods. Brake system integration. Sway bar design and fabrication?

Documenting all this, as the car is developed and raced.

Creates a work list, as the weekend goes by. And starts the conversation. With the car owner, driver and team. And promotes the idea of brainstorming with the entire team.
So we can become stronger on track. And not make the same mistake twice.

Who is this guy? What is his title?

What do you call him after 21 years on the team. And eight national championships?

Do you call him valuable?
Would you call him a team engineer?
Or just a replaceable bystanders?

But he also:

Fabricate custom aluminum break ductwork from scratch.

Designs, fabricate and maintains. Tooling and fixtures. So you can make SPAIRS next time the car gets wrecked. That are identical to the good stuff youíre racing on!

Design and fabricate custom exhaust headers. That not only fit the rules. but also create enough extra power and torque. Enough to impress the engine builders. Driver and anybody with a stopwatch in hand!

Who is this guy? And how valuable is he to the team?

What do you call him? When he does this out of the goodness of his heart. To support his friends.

Hope Valuable is this guy?
When no Job on the team. Is beneath him. Choosing to be an example not a dictator. Even though he has vast experience.
In pro racing. Trans Am, NASCAR, Cart series and formula one.

But prefers to play cars, with his buddies within Scca.

Is there a place for this guy on your team?

I'M not sure of your point here, is this person looking for a team or are you just pointing out team leaders. I know one of these people and first most I call him my friend.

Thatís the answer I was looking for
When I posted the original note above!

After spending 21 years supporting a multitude time Runnoff champ.
You would think there would be a solid friendship!

But it appears, I am a poor judge of character.
