From Autoweek, regarding Arie Luyendyk’s (former Indy 500 winner) planned comeback to racing:

Instead of driving lots of miles before Indy, Luyendyk will concentrate on physical fitness, and that will include many laps on his Shifter Kart.  “It’s probably the best exercise there is for drivers,” he says.  “It’s good for training and for your focus and for your reaction times, and it’s probably as physical as any race car out there, especially on a bumpy track”.

 

From Car and Driver Magazine, on Shifter Karts:

As Paul Tracy says, “It’s the closest thing on four wheels to Indy-car racing, something I do in the off-season to keep my reflexes sharp”.

 

From in interview with Scott Speed on SpeedChannel:

David Hobbs (former F1 driver, currently a commentator) discussing Scott’s racing background…”Karting is absolutely unbelievably intense”.

 

Scott Speed…“Driving a Shifter Kart around a go-kart track is very similar to driving a Formula 1 car around a track…it’s just on a bigger scale”
