What is the single most difficult skill an endurance racing driver needs to master that other racing drivers don’t? The skill of patiently waiting for your turn while your team mate is on track in your racing seat!
Endurance racers need to be quick, consistent and extremely fit both mentally and physically. Each driver loves being in control but what happens when they get out of the car and need to entrust their seat to a team mate? That is arguably the most difficult part of their job. An endurance racer has to be so much but above all a true team player.
