Any chance we’ll see you competing in a triathlon? Running is also part of your fitness training, correct? Most of us can probably not really imagine the stamina it takes to race a hour race, even if driving is shared with other drivers. Jenson has done quite a few triathlons and I think you joined him in a relay. From there you jumped to carting and it seems that is the path most people take who end up as professional racecar drivers. Is swimming really such a hurdle, or is it more so a question of time? Race fitness really comes from driving the car but base fitness really helps with focus and of course recovery.
