Autocross Noob - What should I bring on April 10?

Post  rigby on Mon Apr 05, 2010 7:55 am

Good morning. I am an autocross noob looking forward to learning some this Saturday. I'd appreciate any insight into things to bring that might not otherwise be obvious. Car prep - such as it is on my old suspension - I get. Food, fluid, and sunscreen I have covered. What else is useful? Any input appreciated.

Air compressor, tire pressure gauge, trashbags for storage in case of rain, tools, painters tape for numbers, paper towels/rags, membership card. Arriving with your car already cleaned out makes things a bit easier as well. Also there is typically a 30-45min break for lunch and enough time to run down the street to grab something so bringing a lunch isn't completely necessary...water is a very good idea though.

Clothes to cover ANY weather situation. I always have a floppy hat, winter hat, gloves, raincoat fleece etc. For some reason Devans seems to have it's own weather pattern.

To add to the above suggestions,
rain gear, warm clothes (training pants, hoodie), gloves (mechanics or driving), car jack (low profile is better), spare tire,
all the tools you can think of, tarp to cover your possessions while you're out on the course, something to weight the tarp down, so it doesn't blow away (scissor jack, spare tire),
plenty of fluid to drink, cooler to keep your fluids in, folding chair, umbrella (for the sun and rain),
Comfortable shoes (for standing and walking)
closed-toe shoes (for driving)
sunglasses.

A bottle of coolant (doesn't matter if it's water of 50/50 mix), a bottle of oil (whatever your car uses, usually 10W-30).

Bill B. actually has a complete checklist of things to bring. Something that he's developed over the years. PM him and ask about it. Smile

Post the list!!! People can add to the list and/or comment on the option value...
In either case it will be a valuable resource for future reference...
