Looking to Rent Gear/Car for 2014 Racing School

Postby robbadobba82 » Mon Jan 13, 2014 3:46 pm

Hi All,

Trying to get my budget lined up and hoping to take part in Racing School this year. I'm wondering if I could rent equipment rather than buy because finances may not allow me to get farther than racing school. I'm 6'2'', 180lbs, with a big head lol.

So I'll need

Suit (From online sizing charts I think I need an XL due to my height)
Helmet (I believe my motorcycle helmet is an XL. It's a Shoei RF1000 if that helps)
HANS Device
Gloves
Shoes
I'll buy the undergarments new
I will also need a car (I have no preference about having a roof or fenders, just something easy for a beginner to drive. I have run the track a few times before at the Fun Run after volunteering for a season).

Please let me know if I'm forgetting anything. Feel free to PM me or post here.

Thanks Everyone!

-Rob

Well Rob, since you whet your on-track appetite in an RX-7........maybe you should talk to Bruce Wentzel about securing one of his cars for the season!

P'md

Also if you plan to eventually buy gear i'd highly suggest taking a little trip to go see Keith Averill over in Madison heights (http://www.racing-stuff.com/)

Thanks Brian! You're right that was Bruce's RX-7 I drove. I'll have to shoot him a message.

Thanks Clutch.

I'll let you know. I have to figure out what size helmet I am.

No problem... you can always just try on the ones we have to verify the fit...

Clutch, do the OTD helmets have the fasteners for the HANS?

They have the attachment points... Does the HANS have the screws to go into the helmet?
