Does Drivers Weight Affect Speed Racing Cars?

Answer

The driver’s weight can affect the speed racing cars. According to the NASCAR driver physical conditioning, the driver has to include weight training so as to build up strength for steering and breaking. It’s also important for the driver so that he can withstand the abuse from bouncing around and getting slammed from excessive G-forces.

Weight distribution is based on many factors and a driver’s weight does not matter. A car weighs so much overall, and that is distributed between front and rear. When the driver gets on the brakes, the total remains the same, but the effective – or dynamic – distribution, alters. Weight is effectively shifted to the front wheels but since the total remains the same, the rear effectively weighs less.
