F1 23: How Many Calories Do SimDrivers Burn?

Hey Top Driver!

Welcome to a new blog post.

Today we bring you a slightly different topic, a light curiosity, brief yet very interesting.

All the movements we make during the day help us burn calories, meaning the energy supplied to our body through food and drink.

It's natural to say that SimRacing also aids in burning off energy in our body, helping both in diets and in staying fit.

"Mens Sana in Corpore Sano" (A Sound Mind in a Sound Body), as Juvenal, the poet from ancient Rome, would say in his satires.

Only if our body is trained, healthy, and full of energy, can our mind be productive, proactive, and effective in the everyday challenges of life.

To maintain this "bodily health" and ensure mental well-being, SimRacing can be an excellent workout too.

But the question is: how many calories can a SimDriver burn?

Let’s find out now.

Continue reading.

Note: The calories you burn depend on your metabolism, your body, and your age, similar to what happens in a gym.

So, we can't give you a specific number of calories you will burn, but we can make an approximate estimate.

First of all, our metabolism is a "calorie-burning structure."

You can burn calories even while sitting on the couch watching TV, or at the office, school, or university.

However, the energy expenditure is always significantly lower compared to performing physical activities, including SimRacing.

How many calories do I burn while racing?

Suppose you're 23 years old.

You'll burn between 170 and 220 kcal/h, which is quite close to the amount you'd burn weightlifting or doing water aerobics.

It's not a lot, but remember, it's triple what you'd burn while lying in bed.

It's also much less compared to real F1 drivers, who can burn up to 1000 kcal/h while driving their single-seaters.

A record amount.

G-forces produced, adrenaline circulating in the body.

These are factors that significantly contribute to such a high number for real F1 drivers.

We hear about real F3 drivers who, at the end of a race, are so hungry they could even eat the shutters of their garages!

How do I burn calories in SimRacing?

A very popular question.

Although you don't feel the real G-forces as in an actual race car, you perform physical activities like braking hard with your left leg to improve your times or overtake a rival.

Moreover, you might exert a lot of arm power on your steering wheel if it has a lot of Force-Feedback.

A considerable amount of energy is required to turn, change gears.

All this adds up in the calculation of calories you burn.

It's nothing compared to the effort required to drive a real F1 or GT3 car, but the physical work remains substantial.

Well, we’ve come to the end of this relatively short but very interesting article on calorie consumption in the world of SimRacing.

Now, we want to give you a little surprise, namely the Track Path from us at ADT Esports Academy to help you improve your times on F1 23 and give a purpose to your calorie burning while driving!

First of all, remember that being fast on F1 is a slow, delicate, and exhausting process.

You must work hard and invest in yourself if you want to achieve the results you aspire to on the track and reach your goals.

On the track, you are NOT the employee, the lawyer, the butcher, the worker, the family man, the student of everyday life.

You are a Driver, and as such, you must act, turning, turning, and turning, with perseverance and dedication.

You'll see that the results will come if you adopt a Method, a System specifically studied and tested for YOU.

Imagine the thrill, the rush of adrenaline when you push your car to the limit and cross the finish line first in a race.

Imagine the happiness, the burst of pride and self-esteem you'll have when you achieve all your goals on F1.

Imagine watching yourself on the track, getting a Podium, or winning a Race.

Wouldn't it be great to be able to do everything you want on your own, like achieving pole positions and victories, winning championships?

We are ADT Esports Academy, the first F1 academy globally.

With over 15 years of experience in SimRacing, we have helped more than 1900 drivers revolutionize their driving style on F1, with some reaching Esports championships.

Others have simply started having fun, improved their performance, and started winning races/championships.

If you really want to improve on F1, you're in the right place!
