    Kit for a Euro Trackday Trip?

    I've got my first Euro event booked for the start of March next year and I'm completely buzzing for it! It's probably a little early but I want to start getting prepared, or at least have a list of what I need. So far I have:

    - bike
    - leathers, helmet etc
    - tool kit
    - paddock stands
    - fuel can
    - tyre warmers + extension
    - pressure gauge
    - probably my clothes for the trip so I don't have to mess around with much hand luggage
    - ratchet straps and covers / cushions for the stillage
    - spares (not sure what I should plan for other than brake pads?!)
    - tyres (probably have a day left in the current ones and then a fresh set going on)
    - probably some food, snacks and drinks (guessing expensive at the track?)

    The bike will be freshly serviced before going, new chain and sprockets and brake fluid change.

    Also if anyone has any photos of a packed stillage for some ideas on what to put where and securing it all etc?

    This is the sort of fuel jug you can take
    https://www.toolstation.com/shop/Aut...ing+Jug/p75818

    You'll basically want a full one of these per session (5l). You get fuel in 20l cans from the track organiser and then decant 5l at a time.

    Re: power...it gets tricky I would take the following, as it should cover you for all types of garage;

    Extensions and adaptors I have sorted, I'm going with Focused and they said I can take fuel cans but they have to be empty, so was thinking of a 10L metal and 5L plastic?

    Re: Kit for a Euro Trackday Trip?

    I've just got back from Jerez.

    Remember there are a lot of you there, so you can always borrow something. I always make sure i've got stuff specific to my bike. Basic tools and fluids etc. We tried to co-ordinate most things across the 15 of us so we only took 3 fuel jugs between us for example.

    Make sure you write your name on stuff too, at the end its always a bit of a mess trying to get everything together, easier to see who's tyre warmers are whos etc...
