“When can I drive?”

“What do I bring to the track / what do I wear?”
Since it is a “public road” all you need is an international drivers license (no race license) although we do recommend to use a helmet to protect you from the safety cage in case of an accident. So you do not need to wear a race-suit and/or gloves, but it is not if you prefer you can choose to wear these.
It is wise to wear race shoes or other narrow shoes, we do have helmets in our store but hope you will bring your own.
!!! On all trackdays a helmet is mandatory !!!
