Bluetooth on the track?

Might seem like a silly idea, but has anyone considered using them on the track to help instruct? Would these even be allowed on the track? I think it would be beneficial to tell students when to brake, what gear to be in, if they should be going faster, slower, leaning more, ect in real time. Personally I think getting the critique while what you did is still fresh on your mind is going to help a lot more than waiting after a session and trying to think back to where you made that mistake. Pulling off the track immediately after the lap to get critique would work too, but that cuts down on track time. Just a thought.

lol. I don't mean connecting to your actual phone. They have systems that communicate with each other via bluetooth. I personally think for the novice guys it would be a good idea. You're not supposed to be riding 100% anyway so I think there is room for communication there.

we've talked about it... not sure of the risks, or how well they would work. I can see how it would be helpful, but someone in your ear may not be the best for some. It could potentially be a distraction.

Doug Polen superbike school uses them.
Not sure what type of hardware, but reviews says it's a very effective tool for one on one instruction.
They provide the helmets that are prewired with the intercoms.

I use a bluetooth helmet fully covered. Works great for music, calls, and helmet to helmet communication.

something like that would indeed work great for one on one instruction... a trackday however is not one on one... wonder what the cost of a trackday would go to if they went to something like this...

Honestly... not sure I would like it. I can't concentrate with someone talking to me. I have to get "zoned in" which is usually done with music on the street or singing to myself while riding on the track. Trust me noone wants to have to ride through what goes on in my helmet but me...

I have to imagine it would be distracting. Some of the novice guys are overwhelmed by ther experience without having the voice of in their head the whole time.





I could see it being useful for endurance teams, though.

What did you use to mount your phone? Is it universal? And how secure is it from falling off?
