Hi,

I'm wondering what kind of gloves and boots are required for the test the track session? I'm hoping to do my first track day in October and was planning on coming out to check out the August event prior to purchasing a full suit and registering for a full track day event.

Right now I only own short cuff gloves and riding sneaker/boots (TCX Street ace). Is this plus a Snell helmet and textile jacket good enough to participate in the TTT session? Or do I have to have race boots and full length gauntlet gloves?

Thanks!

Hi ia02! Welcome to MCRA!

Here is a link to our Track Day Manual, which can be found on our site at midwestcaferacing.com:
http://midwestcaferacing.com/wp-content ... l-2017.pdf

Section 2 is "Rider Requirements" and it does say that gauntlet gloves are required, as well as riding boots of at least 8" that fully cover the ankle. If you would like more clarification on these items, please email info@midwestcaferacing.com and they can provide all the details you will need to know. :-)

If you need, we do have vendors at the track that will rent gear, as well. That might be a little bit cheaper than going out and buying the items, just in case you arent sure if track riding will be for you, or not.

Hope this is helpful!

I'm sure someone would be happy to loan you boots and gloves for a test the track session. What sizes do you need?
