Default Ashphalt Racing (What to have at the track)

Just a basic question

I am wondering what most people actually bring to the races besides the obvious of extra car parts and batteries

what else should I be bringing? maybe this question is a little vague but I am just looking for info in what people have in there carrying bins or bags so I can stock up on stuff for the summer

i have seen very serious racers, they will bring extras like: 2nd power supply, 2-3 chargers, lots of tires, tire compound, warmers, setup tools, backup cars/electronics, laptop etc....

i only bring the basic stuff and keep it light since i am not a serious racer and i just want to have fun at the track. having said that, i usually bring 2-3 cars to play. touring x 1, F1 x1, 1/12x1 or M chassis.

chair, sunblock if racing during daytime...the right rubber tires and traction compound for rubber tire...and a fan sometimes it gets kinda warm out.

If outside a tent for shade, a table, chair, fan to keep cool, generator (or borrow power from someone else). For racing just spare parts, traction compound, tools for fixing your car, your power supply/charger/batteriesm radio, car, tires. That is the basics I guess. Im sure Im missing some but that should get you through the day.

cooler with water and beer. A pop up tent is needed with a table and chair. Most important don't forget the beer.

Folding Table, chair, pop-up gazebo, leisure batteries, PSU (in case someone uses a generator I can attach to) additive, tools, setup board, variety of tyres (we can runwhatever we want), lubes & oils etc.

A decent hauler bag should suffice for putting in everthing you need including car.

Most importantly, bring your sense of humour and make it a fun day for everyone.
