Is it "bad etiquette" to ask to co-drive?

Is it bad etiquette to ask someone if you can co-drive their car at a National Tour event? I would imagine most guys would want someone to keep their tires warm right? This is a guy I know fairly well from my local region (same car too), I just want to make sure itís not "bad etiquette" to ask.

Thanks,
Andy

I don't think so... then again, it all depends on 'how' you ask.

Thanks for the response. I may just go ahead and send him an email and see how he feels about it. I'm actually already registered for the event to compete in B Stock in my own car, so if he invites me to co-drive with him, I'll just give Nancy Downing a call and see if she can't change my registration.

Thanks again,
Andy

You can offer to be a tire-warmer, or even help pay for expenses for the weekend, etc. Some people who co-drive frequently with the same driver also often help pay for tires, as they're contributing to the wear. All depends on the individual.

But use your car... it'll be more satisfying when you take it to a new plane and start beating National-level competitors.
