Coaching motorsport stars of the future

Ten drivers have been put through a series of gruelling workshops at Moray House School of Education to help them succeed in this highly-competitive sport.
Demanding physical exercises included an early morning run around a celebrated city landmark - Arthur's Seat - followed by a work-out in the University's heat chamber, where temperatures exceeded 40 degrees Celsius.
The sessions were designed to highlight fundamental training principles, such as how quickly dehydration can occur, and what happens to a driver's mental performance in punishing race conditions.
