Track Day Check List

There’s nothing more frustrating than showing up to a track day and realizing you’re missing something critical. Trust me, I know. One of my first track days we forgot my husband’s bike key. Imagine driving 4 hours to track day only to realize once you arrive that you don’t have your key! Even forgetting small items can be problematic. My last track day at Barber I forgot my tire gauge and air compressor. Running the correct tire pressure is very important, so I was forced to have to borrow a friend’s—which no one wants to be that annoying person who comes unprepared and is always begging to borrow this or that. By being prepared and having all the necessary tools and gear, it takes a lot of pressure and stress off and allows you to focus on riding too. So, I put together a checklist and never fall prey to forgotten track day items. Since I’ve had people ask me what they should bring to track days, I thought it would be helpful to share it. You can view the list below or download a printable checklist here:
