When you are competing in the marathon phase of the combined driving event, your groom/navigator stands on the back of the vehicle and holds on to the handles. The navigator helps add ballast to the vehicle to keep the rear wheels from coming off of the ground and helps through turns to keep the vehicle from becoming off balance.
The navigator can stand upright and hold on to the back of the seat, as in the photo, but when a competitor gets to really going you will see a navigator hanging on to the handles and hanging 3/4 of the way out of the cart around corners.
The handles on my vehicle are also adjustable so they can act as a backrest if I have a passenger sitting on the fenders. skunk 060.jpg
