Default Track Day Checklist (input needed)

I feel like I need a checklist every time I go to a track day because no matter how much I prepare in advance I always seem to forget something different each time. The goal of the list below is to present a comprehensive checklist of things one should consider taking with them before going to the track. The list is intended to cover all aspects of track events, so if you do not see something on the list please include your tips below and I will update the list as frequently as possible. If you use the checklist, please realize that some of the point may not apply to your particular track event so not everything is mandatory.

1. 2 quarts of Motor Oil (minimum)
2. Tire Pressure Gauge
3. Wheel lock & Torque Wrench (or remove the wheel lock before the track day)
4. Helmet & possibly Gloves
5. rain/sun/thermal wear & sunscreen & hate & sunglasses
6. Cash/CC (you might need gas at the track)
7. Basic Tool Kit (dont forget the right tool to adjust your rear sway bar if adjustable)
8. Pyrometer
9. Folding Chair
10. Jack/Stands
11. Log Book
12. Food & Drink/Cooler/Lunch etc.
13. Magnetics
14. Remove Spare
15. Air Pump/Air Tank
16. E-Z-up
17. Adquate clothing for extreme temperatures & climates like rain, wind, humid, or high heat levels(i.e. long sleeve and short sleeve shirt at a minimum).
18. Power Steering Fluid

Are we talking about HPDE sessions?

If so, let’s see: Do a basic tech review of the car, remove take-off items like spare, lose the wheel locks, swap wheels (?), jack/stands, torque wrench, pyrometer, magnetics, helmet, hat, rain/sun/thermal wear, water, lunch, log book, basic tool kit, folding chair (?), driving shoes, sun glasses, cash, remember to take your wallet out of your pocket if you’re using a harness and don’t like your chiropractor, lol.

There’s a lot more, it depends on the type of event and travel distance.

I was thinking of general track days thrown by different organizations because I was familiar with those, but if you have an item specific to a particular type of organized motorsports flag it with a * and put the type of motorsports it is specific to in (...) and I will still add it. Thanks!

You forgot an air pump. Two of the tracks I've been two don't have them available during HPDEs (go figure.)

Wheel chocks are nice to have as well as a long sleeve shirt(depends on how strict the group you run with is about the rules) and a short sleeve shirt.

Do you have that in a word format? I am a computer where the keyboard sucks. I suppose when I get home I can manually type it out.

Thank you! As soon as we have compiled a "comprehensive list," you can make it into a prinatable Velozt web page for IWSTi.com members if you would like...
