When you are competing in that 6hr or 12hr event, drivers and their support teams spend more than the ‘6-12’ hours time on track. You know it, and so do we! The competition begins off the track with your cars and your people. We can’t help with the car set up and maintenance, but we can certainly assist with the people. You can start with a single therapist to support the team at the track (doing seated or prone massage) to help you through the event, including evening massage for fatigued personnel. Yes, you can get a larger team of therapists or even make a deal and share your therapist(s) amongst a few teams to spread the costs.
Having worked with state level cricket, state level rugby, NRL and amateur soccer players during pre-season training sessions and post-match we understand about treating individuals based upon the stresses placed on their bodies. Therapists work to support individuals and may receive information on specifics from team physiotherapists. Pre-season is important so don’t forget that maintenance of muscle fibres in the early season will support better function throughout the active season.
