The Porsche Human Performance (PHP) center is designed with the race car driver in mind. The facility includes a sports science laboratory, equipped with state-of-the-art technology, including a special developed heat chamber for specialist acclimation training prior to racing in hot climates. PHP offers a full range of physiological testing to provide Porsche's factory drivers with a greater understanding of their health and driving-specific fitness levels. Interestingly, the center can be used by other drivers and athletes across multiple disciplines if they book an appointment in advance.
