BMW DTM drivers hone their fitness
The six BMW DTM drivers underwent an intense training regime this week. They were in Viareggio from Sunday to Wednesday for a four-day fitness camp. Team doctor Riccardo Ceccarelli and his Formula Medicine team had put together an extensive and diverse training schedule to ensure that the drivers are perfectly prepared for the coming DTM season.
The focus was on fitness, reaction and mental training with the programme including workouts on various pieces of equipment, CrossFit exercises, and outdoor activities like volleyball and clay pigeon shooting.
“The fitness camp is a very important part of the pre-season preparations for us drivers,” said Bruno Spengler. “Particularly the team building aspect. After the long winter break, we all meet up and train together. It is always nice to come to Viareggio to see Formula Medicine. Doctor Ceccarelli and his team always come up with something new for us every year, and present us with new challenges – both physically and mentally. You could hardly have a better preparation for the new season.”
