I am trying to talk an old friend of mine into coming out to his first track day and he is being struck by some of the sticker shock of starting out in this hobby.
New Leathers - Boots - Helmet - tires.. etc etc
He already has some gear - but not track stuff
I was wondering to do STT N are purposebuilt riding boots required or are over the ankle boots ok. He is a Marine so obviously he asked if he can wear combat boots
I told him I thought he could, but I wasn't sure.
Figured this is a good place to check.
I am recommending he pick up one of the closeout Alpinestar SG-1 suits as they are a pretty good value right now + he can use it for the street.
I think he is good on the helmet - I do not believe he has ever been down before.
So would combat or engineer boots pass tech? I just want to be sure of any advice I give him. I would hate for him to show up and not be allowed through.
Perhaps he will pick up boots for his next weekend - I'd just like to get him out there and 'hooked'
