A helmet
to run water instead of coolant/antifreeze

but do I need:
Roll bar or Roll cage?
to run with top up, or can I run top down?
Are 5 point harnesses necessary?

Anything else you want to add, feel free.

the roll cage rule for verts is 12.50 or faster needs a cage, not sure of the points though, regular seatbelt should be fine (depends on how fast you are running) and i believe the top must be up. just ask the track officials
in due time....
