Working up a sweat for the new season.
The new Volkswagen Scirocco R Cup season gets underway on 4th May. In order to ensure that the opening round at the Hockenheimring is a complete success, 17 Volkswagen Scirocco R Cup drivers put the finishing touches to their physical conditioning during a five-day fitness camp in Oberjoch, Bavaria. The highlight of the demanding training programme was a biathlon relay, which saw all the drivers in action on the Biathlon World Cup route in Oberstdorf.
Fitness coaches also gave the participants a basic introduction to the kind of balanced diet that they, as sportsmen and women, should be following. The timetable also included a wide range of training sessions dealing with mental fitness. The 2013 season of the Volkswagen Scirocco R Cup comprises six race weekends, with the finale taking place in Hockenheim on 19th October.
