NEW YORK, Sept. 10 Racing may be a sport where the driversare sitting while performing, but to be competitive, their conditioning has tobe as intense as any professional athlete. Hitting the gym is not alwaysenough. Drivers need to be mentally tough, as well physically fit, so manylook to other sports to train their bodies and toughen their minds.

See video from General Motors (NYSE: GM) at:

Oliver Gavin is four-time GT class champion at the 24-hour of LeMans. Tostay in shape, he runs marathons. Johnny O'Connell is the record holder formost top-5 finishes on the American LeMans Series. He trains in karate togive him an edge on the race track. Martial arts, like motor racing, are avery disciplined sport and you have to be calculating, intelligent and quick.Being physically fit helps drivers be more competitive on the track.
