When a few seconds can cost you a place on the podium, everything counts! You may instinctively try to tweak the car, bike or kart’s performance, but have you considered improving your own?
Fitness in motorsport is often overlooked. During a race you need to be both physically and mentally strong in order to maximise performance. Muscular strength and cardio-vascular fitness are the two most important fitness components in motorsport. Whilst racing, your body has huge demands placed on it; from the neck coping with added G-forces, to your legs pressing the pedals hundreds of times. Core stability, good posture and a strong frame are key in improving endurance performance and concentration.
On the starting grid, your car, bike or kart is fuelled for the race and you need to ensure that you are too. Optimal pre-race preparation also includes appropriate nutrition and hydration. Sensible choices of protein, carbohydrates and water will enable you to maintain physical performance and mental alertness throughout the race.
