Fresh brake fluid? IDK how old your current one is. Other than that just check your track org and see what else they might require. Have you done a trackday before?

Lots of fluids (water, Gatorade, Powerade, NO POP), snacks, pop up canopy if you have access to one, tools, stands, folding chairs... Not sure how the TD is set up, but all things to consider.

BTW, when is this? I want to go to a TD or two this year, but the work schedule sucks for finding time.
