nights? If you're like me, you'll be so
revved up the night before the event
that it may be difficult to get a good
night's sleep the night before. By the
way, it's normal to feel a little nervous
before your track day.
During track day (use this
section as a checklist)
Wear a long-sleeved shirt, long
pants, and closed-toe shoes. Bring
your glasses and/or sunglasses, sunscreen, and a hat. And a tire pressure
gauge. And a lug wrench or a torque

wrench. Nice-to-have items include
an umbrella, a bucket (for all the stuff

give you materials including a
schedule, wristband, and numbers to
put on your car.
Have a good breakfast (but not
too much) at least 30 minutes before
going onto the track. Your brain
needs the fuel. Same thing during the
lunch break.
Be on time for the drivers' meeting. You'll meet your instructor at the

end of the meeting.
Go with your instructor for the
low-speed orientation lap opening
session. Helmets are not required for
orientation laps. Pay attention to
where your instructor is driving during
the orientation laps; this is the " line "
that you should be driving as well.
Channel your mother: stay
hydrated, use sunscreen, and wear a
hat.
Set your tire pressures before
your first track session. Ask your
