For most tracks you'll need to fill out a tech form lick this one:

Here's is a list of stuff you should bring but if you go with a group you can tag team so not one person has to bring everything:

Track Checklist
Note: Many of these things don't apply to a person in a street car, so don't worry about it if you don't have a neck brace, for instance.
  • Helmet! - a very bad (and easy) thing to forget
  • Tech form - Important
  • Car Numbers – required on both sides of the car and rear, a minimum of eight inches high (we will have racer’s tape available at the track for this purpose)
  • Cotton or Nomex clothing ONLY. No leather or synthetics allowed.
Highly Recommended (not strictly required)
  • Tow hook installed or tow point established
  • Driving Suit or long sleeve cotton shirt and cotton pants (although we allow short sleeve shirts and shorts, it is highly discouraged and potentially harmful in the case of an accident)
  • Fire Extinguisher
  • Extra Brake pads
  • Brake fluid
  • Drinking Water (Speed Ventures provides water but just in case we run out…)
  • Engine Oil - bring a quart or two, just in case
  • Hat - for Sun
  • Sunglasses
  • Sun Screen
  • Folding chair
  • Duct tape
  • Distilled Water - Radiator
  • EZ-UP Canopy - Ideally there would be one for every 4 cars or so, because the sun can be brutal. Hopefully everyone who has one will bring one (and it makes you very popular too).
  • Windex - You will kill many bugs on your way to the track.
  • Brake Bleeder line
  • Racing Neck Brace
  • Racing shoes
  • Camera
  • Hose Clamps
  • Jack
  • Jack stands
  • Jumper Cables
  • Service manual
  • Torque wrench
  • Other tools (sockets, wrenches, pliers...)
  • Grease
  • Hand Soap
  • Ice chest
  • Map/directions/phone number of hotel
  • Map/directions/phone number of track
  • Paper Towels
  • Rags
  • Run Flat aerosol cans
  • Tie Wraps
  • Stopwatch
  • Race tires
  • Spare tire - you never know
  • Tire pump
  • Tire pressure gauge
  • Tire pyrometer
  • Flashlight
  • Funnel for oil
  • Gloves – disposable
Awesome! Thanks for the write up. I have most everything on that list so I'll be prepared when I go. Really looking forward to this!

Thanks, I have about a dozen helmets from various other motorsports events but I might as well add to the collection by getting one for track purposes. I'll keep an eye out for any other events prior to this one but I'm gonna do everything I can to make it to the August 10th event/race.
