Track day heat!
Guys and gals,
Over the years I picked up some tricks to keep core temp down. With WOW a day away and the weather guys saying it will be 110 heat index I figured I'd share a few tips.
1-Crush ice and put in zip lock baggies (don't overfill, You'll want them a little flat), push all the air out, and leave in the cooler. when your session is up place the baggies in you suit. One between your your traps at the neck line is very nice.
2- run fans on your helmet, gloves, and boots when off track. a simple 250w car inverter usually does the trick
3-put the bike in the shade too. A hot bike is not a lot of fun and the heat transfers to you
4-change into dry clothes on occasion and put your wet (shirt mainly- not your sponge bob boxers) clothes in an a/c'ed room. Hang the shirt over a chair and switch it out through out the day.
At any time you feel dizzy or fatigued then you need to get indoors to the a/c, drink fluids, and relax.
