Apexperformance.net is pretty good too. Got some gloves and pilotis from them. Look around on various forums, there's usually a 10-15% coupon code floating around somewhere as well.

Well, I got my gloves and helmet ready for Saturday. Im still in the market for shoes (next race at ButtonWillow) and a race suit. Too bad nobody sponsors the forum or the LCS and sells race clothing.

don't wear a racing suit to a HPDE (JMHO). I buy my stuff at saferacer.com.
make sure to check their sale items.

Some club require a nomex suit.

I personnally wear mine to every race (mandatory), lapping days (encouraged) and HPDE (nobody gives a) I attend. I don't care if I look silly, if one day something wrong happens at the track, I'd rather look silly than look like a roasted chicken.

Anyway, when I didn't have a suit, I never knew how to get dress for HPDE. Some club want long sleeves, some tolerate short sleeve, some won't allow some kind of fabrics etc. With my racing suit I don't have to worry and I feel safer.

YMMV
