Talking Laguna Seca Day

I am hitting a road course for the first time (Laguna Seca), and it is a bucket list item for me to do so. I am super fortunate I get to do it in a Camaro 1LE. I don't think it will become a regular thing, maybe just every once and a while. Before then, I am planning on a Detroit Speeds rear sway bar, goodridge brake lines with Motul RBF600 Change, Stoptech pads/rotors, & new tires.

Some helpful advice is appreciated

- Look ahead, further than you think you need to
- Double check the torque on your wheels
- Bouncing off of curbs at speed is hard on a car, if you choose to do this you may want to double check your alignment after
- Put shoepolish or a tire marker on the edges of your tires and keep an eye so they don't roll, you may even need to air up your tires
- Change your oil & filter after the track day

Buy track insurance. Even if you aren't "pushing" yourself, other people are pushing themselves and your regular insurance will not cover anything. Track insurance is between $100 and $150 per $10K of coverage. So if you figure your car is worth $30K, then it'll cost you $300 to $450 and is money well spent.

Bring fluids. I'm not talking about brake fluid and oil, but water. It's a long day and very tiring. Bring food. Bring a lawn chair or other device by which you can sit. Bring sun block and a baseball cap or other neck covering. Make sure you have enough pads (at least 50%) and tread to pass tech.

Hagerty has begun offering track day insurance and I find theirs to be pretty reasonable. You can get an online quote on their site too.

The time trial part of the insurance is just going for local best time. Do most events do those?
I would assume as a beginner one would not need that part.
