    RACER SAFETY: Dehydration Myths & Facts

    Humans are 60 percent water. Therefore, without a constant source of it to replenish our bodies, your core temperature rises and you become dehydrated, or worse yet, the situation becomes fatal. That’s why it is critical to be fully hydrated, especially when desert racing, where ambient temperatures can reach triple digits for hours on end. Imagine the heat generated inside a padded fire suit, helmet, and a closed race car, and you’ll begin to see why the world’s best racers— from Formula-1 to NASCAR — educate themselves on being constantly hydrated.
