The Motor Sports Association (MSA) and Racing Steps Foundation (RSF) have arranged for the Sainsbury’s Try Team to support its MSA Academy Performance Master Classes at Ellough Park Raceway on Friday 15 October.
The Try Team will show Formula Kart Stars competitors and their parents how they can eat healthily during race weekends by delivering three 30-minute cooking demonstrations. These will take place alongside the Eating to Win Master Class, which explores the principles of diet and nutrition.
MSA Performance Director and 2001 WRC champion co-driver Robert Reid said: “The Performance Master Classes are designed to get young drivers thinking about the relationship between what they do off the track and what happens on the track. Diet and nutrition are a key part of that and I’m sure that the Sainsbury’s Try Team will do a great job of engaging the karters at Ellough Park.”
The Sainsbury’s Try Team’s Sian Fox said: "The Sainsbury's Try Team's mission is to inspire the nation to cook and we are delighted to be attending the karting event at Ellough Park. We will be demonstrating simple, great tasting, healthy recipes sure to appeal to youngsters. There will be tasting for all and recipes to take away."
The MSA’s Performance Master Classes have been introduced this year thanks to support from the Racing Steps Foundation to introduce young drivers and their parents to the basic concepts of sports science and human performance. They are delivered free of charge at selected motor sport events across the UK and as well as Eating to Win, the programme comprises modules entitled What does it take; Talking to Team You; Goals and planning; Race fit; and Racing Parents.
