I used to watch them on Speedvision before it became "all NASCAR all the time". Still have no idea how the navigator knows which way to go but they're fun to watch!!

The course has all kinds of shapes and sizes of islands, channel widths, radius turns and every time they run, the teams are given a different route of the course to run, just prior to the run, so both the driver and the navigator cannot memorize the course after a couple practice runs or eliminations, every run is a unknown to both driver and navigator.
