On September 2nd, I will be going to the New York Safety Track for a S.L.O.W.(Subaru Love Of Westchester) track day.
Definitely excited, but also a bit nervous, as you would expect. Now that I’m signed up, I need to buy a helmet. I’m choosing between the Bell Sport and the Simpson Voyager 2. Both similarly priced and from two well known companies. Right now Its looking like it’ll be the Voyager 2, seeing as the sport is out of stock even on Bell’s own website. I have my dads old shoes so I’m covered there, not that they’re needed, but I have them. The only thing I’m not sure about is gloves. Should I grab a pair or not? I plan on doing more track days and auto-crosses in the future, but I’m not really sure I need them. Other than that, I’m good to go. I’m hoping my sister will let me borrow her GoPro so I can record some laps, otherwise I’ll just have some pictures.
There are also a few parts I need to put in before I go up to school so that shes ready for the track day. She’ll be my only car while I’m up there so it may be a bit risky going, but its my last shot for the year and I needed to make it happen.
We’ll see how it goes.
