HOW V8 SUPERCAR DRIVERS CAN ENHANCE THEIR HYDRATION
Motor racing is a sport requiring elite concentration, sustained physical endurance, lightning-fast reaction times and precise coordination. With temperatures in the cockpit which can reach up to 70C, drivers can experience staggering fluid loss of up to 3L per hour.
In a sport where the difference between winning and losing can be 1/100th of second, athletic and mental performance means everything. It is well established in sports science that dehydration can reduce athletic performance by up to 29% including having negative effects on reaction times, decision making and skill execution.
