So my hold out buddy is finally getting married in the next year sometime, and we have been kicking around a track day as part of the bachelor party. Just curious about some of the hardware I may want to get.
I know I need a Snell SA2005 helmet, anyone have recommendations on one that breathes well with a removable washable liner?
Harness bar and harnesses:
I had racing seats in my old car, and I'm not sure I want to go that far, but a harness bar and harnesses are relatively cheap. Anyone have one installed? Where do 4 point harnesses mount in a wrx?
Tools for the track:
So if you bring a jack/tools, where do you keep them when you are out running on track? Do you just pile them in the pit area and hope no one takes them?
Gas at the track:
Do you show up with a full tank and hope you don't run out, or are there pumps there? Gas cans?
Ironically, I have always wanted to do a track day and I have some awesome tracks all within driving distance.
Thunderhill is 1.5 hours away, Sonoma is 1.5 hours away, Laguna Seca is 4 hours away (and on my bucket list), Willow springs is 5 hours away.
Seems companies like Trackmasters and Extreme Speed charge around $200 a day to go out and run.
