My 12V compressor has alligator clips and long leads so I don't have to use the power socket in the interior.

Seen too many blown fuses and even 2-3 melted power sockets.

I second the change of cloths. Chance of rain? Rain Gear. With a properly prepared car about the only consumable that catches people out is a set of brake pads. Don't forget ear plugs. Have fun.

I Agree. In my first 2 seasons participating in DE events, I drove about 180 miles each way with a small plastic box. In it I had 1 qt of oil, a decent air pressure gauge, front brake pads, a roll of paper towels, 2 microfiber towels, glass cleaner and an umbrella. Focus on learning and have Fun!
