This article concerns the analysis of work interaction of a motorcycle racing team during pre-season tests, drawing on ethnomethodology, and conversation analysis to explicate the ways in which the manager and the driver collaborate, through everyday gestures and language, to create a shared understanding of the bike’s mechanical issues and disambiguate the driver’s accounts of the bike’s performance. We report on a set of video-recorded encounters between the manger and the driver, examining how the multi-sensorial experience of the driver is recollected and understood by team members, while overcoming interactional constraints imposed by the unique professional setting.

Abstract

This article concerns the analysis of work interaction of a motorcycle racing team during pre-season tests, drawing on ethnomethodology, and conversation analysis to explicate the ways in which the manager and the driver collaborate, through everyday gestures and language, to create a shared understanding of the bike’s mechanical issues and disambiguate the driver’s accounts of the bike’s performance. We report on a set of video-recorded encounters between the manger and the driver, examining how the multi-sensorial experience of the driver is recollected and understood by team members, while overcoming interactional constraints imposed by the unique professional setting.
