"PitFit Training already uses many different tools to challenge the cognitive abilities of our drivers and other athletes," said PitFit owner Jim Leo. "NeuroTracker is an excellent addition to the program, offering new ways for us to push our clients as well as track their progress."
Created with 20 years of neurological research at the University of Montreal, Dr. Jocelyn Faubert and Jean Castonguay founded NeuroTracker to utilize 3D software to measure, identify and improve cognitive functions. This software will be instrumental to PitFit's clientele, specifically the professional auto racing drivers on the training facility's roster.
"As a leader in the motorsports performance training industry, PitFit is an ideal partner. Its team of specialists truly understand the importance of training the mind to enhance performance and gain a competitive edge." Jean Castonguay, CEO of NeuroTracker.
Several of the full time IndyCar Series drivers at PitFit have already begun training on the performance software, with more expected to sign up in the coming months.
