    Hello all,
    does anyone have a track day and track session form that you use to check off track preparation items and log session data? I've been thinking about developing my own, but I figured there might be someone out there that already has a template. Examples of checklist items:

    Gear for track weekend checklist
    Car setup checklist

    Session checklist:
    Pre:
    Hood is latched/secured
    Wheel torque checked
    Cold tire pressures
    Tire tread/wear check
    Fluid check in engine bay/underside of car
    Wheel chock removed
    Telemetry/recording gear configured/ready
    Traction control on or off (driver/car-dependent)

    Post:
    Hot tire pressures
    Gauge check (oil temp/pressure, coolant temp, diff temp, etc.)
    Wheel chock
    Hood up
    Mileage
    Lap times
    Session notes
    Telemetry/recording gear off
    Whatever else I'm missing...

    The attached sheet is a work in progress. The forum wouldn't let me upload the Word file, but anyone can have this as a basepoint for their own sheet.

    Nice work, thanks for posting. We don't allow Word/Excel and other changeable files to be uploaded for security reasons but PDF's and images work well. I use screen shots a lot myself.

    I've been using the NASA HPDE checklist for pre/post inspection. You could also look at what Longacre/Intercomp include in their setup sheets and go from there using excel/word.

    I would add, remove plastic engine cofers to let the heat out.
