My first track day coming up. What to bring?

It's Sunday June 10th at Putnam Park. I'll be trailering the bike, extra 5-gal fuel, 10x10 awning, air tank, tools, and a cooler full of water. What else should I bring?
Also what should I expect? It's being held by a local bike shop. They have 3 different classes of which I'm riding novice.

Re: My first track day coming up. What to bring?

amke sure tires are good along with front brakes, rear aren't as important but still need to be checked regardless. shouldnt have too many things safety wired or none at all depending on what their guidelines are. and above all just have fun.

Re: My first track day coming up. What to bring?

food. putnam subs out the consession stand to a caterer now. the price is super high.
example a hot dog, that's right I said one hot dog is $5. fooking nuts.
Penut butter and Jelly time! haha.

don't forget chairs. all your gear. and the Bike KEY!!!! the single most important thing.
I ditched the air tank thing and bought a bike tire pump. you are only adding a few PSI anyway. no need to lug around a big heavy tank too. well, it does help hold the canopy down.

I was thinking of joining you with the commonwealth guys but damn, $215 for a trackday at putnam? sounds high to me.

i normally go for weekends, so i usually take a pillow and blankets and somewhere to sleep ofcourse. but if its for a day, then just food water, maybe tire warmers if you got them, but then you would need a generator. or atleast an outlet. stay hydrated! and have fun.

Not that I know of. Putnam is about the closest. It would be sweet to have one locally, but I would be broke all the time.
