Sounds good, i'll see you there Sunday. Stop by and say hi, i'll be in the gray 335.

Fwiw, you should probably sign up as soon as possible since the beginner groups tend to fill up fast. We got a group discount with Aaron. If you're interested, in the comments section while signing up, put "Jason Huang Group" and you can get free timing or $10 off

You don't need much for your first event, just go out there and have fun. Over time you'll develop a (very very) long checklist of items to bring with you, most of which won't matter on a first event. Or bribe someone to give you one. Good luck and enjoy.
you forgot extra underwear LOL

The essentials were mentioned (torque wrench, pressure gauge, and fluids) for a first time out. Get an instructor in the car with you as much as possible. Talk to other drivers to see what they bring and try to get in the car with someone with experience. Right now, the best advice is to leave your ego at home, forget about the gear, and learn.

Have fun and welcome to the addiction.
