I plan on camping, so I'll be taking gear for that as well as stands, basic tools, chair, cooler. Anything that might get left behind that should be brought?

You won't need much for your first day, but take a look around the paddock and see how everyone else is set up. That will make your second day much more enjoyable.

Also, personal stuff such as toiletry items, change of clothes, towel and etc.

I usually take way more things that I need just because I don't want the fun to end because a minor mishap and I hate borrowing things from others...

Post up again closer to the track day and you will find plenty of people that will lend a hand and help show you the ropes. You may be surprised to find out how many helpful people are lurking around here. If I am there I would be happy share a pit and anything else that you may need. Go ahead and start saving up for the next track days now.

I see first timers that forget to bring a canopy or find a spot under the paddocks. Looks like you're on the right direction getting there early to camp and get a paddock spot. Once I saw this 1st timer show up with his girl and it was packed in mid summer. It was fcking hot. They didn't have a canopy and basically their pit area was their car. Poor girl sat in a chair all day waiting for him to come off track to help him. Felt sorry so I offered my services.

Oh and I offered to help him too

Just making it clear... I have a hard time asking peeps to borrow things but I have no problem helping people and loaning things... you can ask around

will you be taking the KTM 690?

I'll likely be there with my 640. In Level 1.

I'll be camping if I go. Hope to arrive at the gate this time at 4pm on Friday!
