    So im going to my 1st official track day next week, yep numero Uno.

    so ive got a few questions if i may.

    1. if i drive my car to the track(i will be) and i bring some tools,jack and wheels etc.
    is it safe to leave your gear somewhere while your out having fun? all my mates r ghay so i'll be coming on my own

    2. how much extra fuel do u usually take?

    yeah my main concern was the 1st, just want to know whats the go

    Normally Dad and I take a blanket/tarp and leave our tools etc on that. The pits are normally a friendly place!

    hi mate ..

    good to hear more sydney ppl going to the track .

    which track you headed ? what event ?

    the pit area imo is the most safer then a car park or even my drive way lol .. just remeber every driver there is also there to have a good time .. everybody respect each other . thats what i reckon .

    i would try get there early and setup my gear . stack my tyre up and leave my tools next to it . no one will touch it . i even leave my keys in the car most time.

    inregards to fuel. it will depend on the event. drifting/skid pan and being a first timer .. i say no more then half a tank is more then enough . full tank to be on the safe side... grip driving i say the same and mayb bring a cherry can just in case. Oh yeah factor in petrol to go home .

    tools :
    a decent socket set
    set of open end spanner
    tin of screw driver and pillars and what not .
    -dont forget the cable ties .

    make sure you have good brakes, hard on the pads out there, & the cheap ones sometimes polish up & need a rub of sandpaper or the likes. Check your oil esp the diff oil.
    Sorry is this a drift day or all out track?

    ahaha .. ill most likely see you there. hanging for another track day .

    depending on how much rubber its got left and how much track time you get .. and that all depends on how many cars turn up. i bring 1pair of say 50%-30% skidders and that lasts all day ... it doesnt hurt to bring a set of skidders .. but thats just mean carrying more shit ....

    Iin regards to tyres I did a drift day at OP north and used a set of 10 yr odl tyres - they probably have another drift day in them and they were half gone to start with. I was lining up at the end of each session to again as well

    If you don't have huge power you will be lucky to go thru a set in a day
