That stuff matters. The rest is optional, superfluous or can be obtained at or near the circuit.

As to licence counterparts, organisers say they're necessary, but I don't recall circuit staff ever having looked at mine. MSV can call the DVLA if it's a weekday and check over the phone, but there's only one safe approach and that's if you have a photocard licence, take both parts.

Default Re: Track Day checklist.

I just take my license, a couple of bottles of water/lucozade and an allen key to remove my mirrors. I think you may be over thinking this

As I said, this isn't for everyone, it enables people to pick and choose. I'm trying to do a good deed here, is all !

I understand that and it's all good. Just saying you don't need all that stuff
