These things would have come in handy at the last track day:

Tire depth gauge
Distilled Water for the IC Sprayer Tank

May I recomend that prior to going to the track you look it up at www.trackpedia.com get a good track map and watch some videos....

In addition to the above suggestions, I bring fuel jugs. I use so much 100 octane in a track day that it's a pain going to the pumps every other run session so I fill up the tank and all the jugs first thing in the morning, and then I can refuel wherever I'm parked.

Also, bring a extra set of properly gapped spark plugs and a gapping tool (don't know if anyone already mentioned that).

agreed. chalk or white shoe polish to get your tires to the right pressure.

i would also add a note to the spare tire removal...if you're driving to the track in your track car, you should still bring your spare to the track. just remove it when you are there, so that you have it in case one something happens to one of your wheels. of course, if you are bringing a second set of wheels, this is probably not necessary.

Sounds stupid, but getting a large plastic bin at walmart always helps to keep your stuff together and dry. When its not in your car when you racing.

I always forget getting this when autoxing and I use dumb plastic bags :/

That was the other thing I was thinking was chalk for the tires. Great for regulating tire pressure.

-tools like keys or allen wrenches specific to adjusting your shocks

-extra brake pads, and possibly rotors depending on your setup

Hi,

I am a complete track novice... And will be starting in a couple months tracking my 08 sti and learning how to drive it better.

These lists seem very long. Where do you store all of this stuff while on the track? What are absolute musts for the first time on a track. Do the tracks supply anything? I do not want to go unprepared but at the same time, I do not have all of that stuff. Where is a good place to start, or should I wait till I have all of those tools?

I appreciate all and any answers.

Extra rotors are a great idea. It'd suck to have a track event ended early with a call to a tow truck because you cracked a rotor.

That said, if you're going to bring extra rotors make sure to have a Helicoil kit handy just in case your calipers don't cooperate with you.
