I realize that.
Stuff happens sometimes though and you never know when you'll need it.
If you're really that worried about having a brake bleeder at the track, just get a vaccum one and a small air compressor/tank. I'd be more worried about air in my tires than my brakes. Vacuum bleeders are just far superior and get the job done faster.

a vacuum hose, clear container(not large), your new DOT4 and a wrench... cant get cheaper nor more compact...

I still like submerging a hose from the bleeder screw in fluid and cracking the bleeder enough for the lever to have resistance when pulling. Then continue to pull. The fluid will be pushed through the system and on every upstroke when you would normally have to close the bleeder and repump, the fluid is drawn in from the submerged liquid.

For assurance, at the end I do pump, hold and crack the bleeder. Air can be seen through a clear container during the whole process of bleeding and flushing the brakes.

I have a large, manual pump pressure bleeder w fittings for several difference cars and supplies pressurized fluid to the reservoir, but this method above is the most efficient and almost only way to bleed the new systems on cars without spending a stupid amount of time on them.
