Post your track day check list?

Show and tell time Pics if you have em

I am starting to build my track day kit and I thought it would be helpful to see what other people are taking to the track. I am hoping to get most of what I need into a single large Rubbermaid that I can throw in the car and go.

Here is my list so far

Safety Gear: long sleeve fire resistant clothes. Bell BR1-fa, Sparco, gloves

Tools: 18v impact and sockets for wheels & brakes

Parts: track pads front and rear, brake fluid

Food: ??

Beverage: 2.5 gallon arrowhead water

Shelter: EZ up

Lucky Charm: right foot

tow hooks front and back (tool to remove rear licence plate)
torque wrench, extension and socket to ensure proper wheel torque
CG locks if no harness
logbook, pencil
power bleeder and brake fluid if going hard

One of the groups I run with posted this list which I use often. Adjust to your personal needs:

Track Checklist
Note: Many of these things don't apply to a person in a street car, so don't worry about it if you don't have a neck brace, for instance.
Helmet! - a very bad (and easy) thing to forget
Tech form - Important
Car Numbers required on both sides of the car and rear, a minimum of eight inches high
Tow hook installed or tow point established
Cotton or Nomex clothing ONLY. No leather or synthetics allowed.

Highly Recommended (not strictly required)
Driving Suit or long sleeve cotton shirt and cotton pants
Fire Extinguisher
Extra Brake pads
Brake fluid
Drinking Water (1/2 gal per day)
Engine Oil - bring a quart or two, just in case
Hat - for Sun
Sun Screen
Folding chair

Duct tape
Distilled Water - Radiator
EZ-UP Canopy - Ideally there would be one for every 4 cars or so, because the sun can be brutal. Hopefully everyone who has one will bring one (and it makes you very popular too).
Windex - You will kill many bugs on your way to the track.
Brake Bleeder line
Racing Neck Brace
Racing shoes
Hose Clamps
Jack stands
Jumper Cables
Service manual
Torque wrench
Other tools (sockets, wrenches, pliers...)
Hand Soap
Ice chest
Map/directions/phone number of hotel
Map/directions/phone number of track
Paper Towels
Run Flat aerosol cans
Tie Wraps
GPS Datalogger & reciever
Race tires
Spare tire - you never know
Tire pump
Tire pressure gauge
Tire pyrometer
Funnel for oil
Gloves disposable
2009 Cayman 2.9L PDK (with a few tweaks)

I find it helpful to have a track map - didn't see it in the very complete lists above.

Also, as I pull out of the driveway I think of the bare minimum I MUST have:
helmet, drivers license/wallet, tech form (and key to car if trailering)
