Winter Training Review
the winter, David was very busy preparing for the 2002 season. In
the beginning of January, David started practicing in his Formula
A kart. Formula A is a 100cc direct drive class and it is one of
the premier classes in Europe. He also continued practicing through
February and March. Most of his practice sessions were run in the
rain, but a few were sunny and dry.
For the first time in a long while, David had the opportunity to
go skiing. He bought a season pass to one of the major ski resorts
in Washington State and enjoyed some time on the slopes. David believes
that skiing is a great way to train for karting. "Other than being
a fun and exciting sport," David explains, "Skiing also improves
fitness and precision."
As always, David continues to play racquetball as often as possible.
David makes a habit of going to the gym about three times a week
to play for an hour at a time. When playing racquetball, a person
is motivated to try and beat their opponent no matter how tired
they are, which in turn improves fitness level. Additionally, racquetball
is a fast sport and relies heavily on reaction time and hand-eye
coordination. These are talents that a racecar driver must have.
