Race Car Drivers Have Crazy Fitness Routines Like Any Other Athlete

Video

It takes 2.5 hours of daily exercise to win a championship.

It’s understandable if most people don’t think that race car drivers have to be physically fit to partake in their sport. After all, they just sit there turning a wheel and pushing pedals until things go wrong. If anything, mental fitness is much more important for a driver. As far as misconceptions go, this is a big one, because not everyone can maintain their bodies in a state that high G cornering and constant stress is doable. That’s why Ford ensures that its Le Mans drivers are physically capable of piloting the epic Ford GT to victory.

Tune in to see the fitness regime that most Le Mans drivers must undergo to pull off some high precision driving.
