The fitness camp focussed on improving the drivers' physical and psychological fitness and to provide them with insights on diet and exercise routines.

The pre-season test helped the drivers familiarise themselves with Vento Cup race car. Driver coach Rayomand Banajee gave lessons on racing lines, braking, cornering techniques, launch control techniques, flag rules and other aspects of racing.

Nissan and VW are 2 companies doing a lot for Motorsports in India. Not that others are not but they are consistently making us believe that there is a career in Motorsport in India. Both Polo cup and Vento cup are done seriously and consistently. And Nissan for not that fortunate has come up with the GT academy. One of my friends were there for the first set of 5 people selected for the outside India round and he came back with thousands of praise for the company. Brand building comes as a package for such events. Lol
