I may not be an instructor but I have raced one thing or another since the mid 60's and I haven't double clutched since I last drove an old fire truck with bad syncros. If you shift gears and it doesn't grind, the syncros are working and you don't need to double clutch. I still can't figure out what the purpose is, other than making your shift times slower.

And Dangerous, if you double clutch while drag racing.....well, I'm not even going there.
