Can You Run Faster Than A F1 Driver?

by On May 16, 2016

It takes a lot to be behind the wheel of an F1 race car—do you think you can endure the Fit For Racing Challenge?

Can You Run Faster Than A F1 Driver?

Are you as fit as a Formula 1® driver? Put yourself to the test at race promoter Singapore GP’s Fit For Racing Challenge.

Following last year’s positive launch, the event returns on Saturday, 25 June 2016 and will be held at SAFRA Punggol for the first time.

Push yourselves through a circuit-style workout created by Australian fitness coach, Paul Haines, who has trained elite athletes including Formula 1® driver Daniel Ricciardo.

Stimulating a F1 driver’s rigorous training regime, the competitive workouts target core stability, balance, upper and lower body strength, conditioning, and full body muscular endurance.

If you think you can endure these challenges, strive to be amongst the top 12 male and female finalists. Battle it out in the finals, test your reactive skills and compete for attractive prizes worth over $9,500.

Prizes include tickets to the 2016 FORMULA 1 Singapore Airlines Singapore GRAND PRIX, gym passes and SAFRA Punggol vouchers sponsored by supporting partners SAFRA Punggol and EnergyOne, as well as vouchers from nutrition partner LiveFit.Asia.

I'm excited to once again be a part of Singapore GP's Fit For Racing programme. Last year’s event received a fantastic response and I was very impressed by the calibre of the participants. The challenges are a great opportunity for fitness enthusiasts to test their limits as they go through similar workouts as the F1 drivers.

F1® drivers are some of the fittest athletes in the world, having to endure extreme G-force ae well as mental and physical challenges. Do you think they bear similarities to runners? We are, after all, ‘road warriors’ too!
