/PRNewswire/ -- When you only have one shot to drive a car as quickly as possible over a four mile, 14-corner lap, it takes a certain mindset to get a racecar driver to perform at his absolute peak mental state in a mock qualifying test session.
"Over the years as a racecar driver, I have had to learn and try different techniques to get the most out of your mind in order to get the most out of the car," says
Dion von Moltke
. "Detailed here in my latest video, watch 'What Drivers Think: Mock Qualifying' where we take an exciting journey together from behind the wheel as I showcase my test session.
"With all the demands outside of our specific jobs as professional athletes, it can become difficult to remain fully in the moment, on task, at hand and clear everything else out of your mind, while you're performing. This is the main thing I work on with myself, and something I personally need to continue to work on. When I get ready for qualifying I prefer to get my helmet on, which puts me into a whole different world, and I also like to get in the car quite early.
