Statement by Phil Hill: “Apollo Energy Gum has totally convinced me since the first use. During my training I can always achieve new best results, and before the races it helps me a lot to focus better. Apollo is also an ideal everyday companion for a quick energy kick in between. Now Apollo is an integral part of my jackets and my car.”
How did you get into racing?
I got into motorsport through my father, who used to drive amateur races himself and that has always interested me. After I rented a kart for the first time and a coach invited me straight away for a weekly training session, I couldn’t be stopped. When we moved from Hamburg to Mülheim an der Ruhr in 2011, I got my first racing kart, and in 2012 the first races were on the agenda, where I was able to claim my first victory and my first pole straight away. Over time everything became more and more professional and one thing was clear to me: I will become a professional race driver.
I always use Apollo® when warming up before a qualifying or a race. It helps me to focus and concentrate even better. During my training, I mainly use Apollo on long road bike rides. My performance and the training effect have become even better as a result.
Apollo® Energy Gum stands for Energy to-go. Why? Because you can just put Apollo in your pocket. One Apollo gum has 80mg of caffeine, as much as a can of energy drink. The caffeine is natural and comes from green coffee beans. In addition, Apollo is sugar-free, vegan and has no aspartame. The most important thing is that you should be focused while driving and that Apollo supports this by chewing gum. Chewing gum stimulates cognitive abilities, i.e. brain functions. One Apollo gum is relatively large, but this is the only way to stimulate the cognitive functions, and therefore be more focused and attentive.
So get your “Energy to-go”. You can now find Apollo at many gas stations or online in our shop www.apolloenergygum.de
