Newbie going to the track


Recommended Posts

I purchased an '03 996 C2 last fall, and I plan on attending some of the track events through the local club this coming spring. My understanding is that in addition to a sound car with good tires & brakes, I will also need a racing harness, helmet, leather shoes, gloves and racing numbers. Can anyone give me suggestions on brands and outlets for these items?

Any additional input that anyone can offer would be welcomed as well!

Thank you.

You can start looking at some of the equipment by going to the manufacturers sites and then looking for distributors in your area (which is WHERE in the USA?). For instance you can go to Sparco's main site ( http://www.sparcousa.com/ ) to find their outlets. If your confident of size you can buy online at places like Race Depot ( http://www.theracedepot.com/ ). Sparco, Bell, Impact, Simpson, etc.. all the best brands are there. Don't forget a Halon Fire Extinguisher and mount (check your club/track requirements).

Good luck!

Each club has their own requirements so you'll need to read their rules to find out what is their minimum requirements. You will need a helmet and a sound car. Most clubs have you fill out a tech sheet before the event or actually tech your car at the event. I am assuming that you're going to participate in DE's and not races.
