In the hot sweaty pit lane, there are only a handful of solutions to keeping hydrated well shaded and ready for the race ahead!
No matter what motor sport you are into, there is almost an endless need for shelter in and refreshments in the paddock, Adventure Kings has you covered!
With the sun beating down on you, its hard to think clearly. Armed with a UPF50+ Adventure Kings Gazebo or an Adventure Kings Vehicle mounted roll out awning, you’ll have a perfect break from the heat of the sun!
If you need more space a Kings 6m x 3m Gazebo offers plenty of shelter for even a whole car or 4WD, so you can make any last-minute pre-race tune-ups or tweaks to make sure you get pole position!
No matter how mild the day is, being out on a track is hot and sweaty work. Nothing beats a cool drink of water to keep your fluids up, and nothing beats an Adventure Kings Fridge/Freezer at keeping your water super chilled! With a settable temperature you can get it frozen down to -18°C. a Fridge/freezer will run off your auxillary batteries, and will easily be kept running all day long with an Adventure Kings 160W solar panel.
With a Kings 12v system you can keep up to 111 icy cold cans of drink on hand in even the most remote paddocks, meaning whoever is thirsty can stay refreshed all day long.
if you keep your Adventure Kings Fridge in the shade it will even use less battery power lasting longer and staying colder!
No matter how many people you have in the pits, it’s a good idea to bring appropriate seating. An Adventure Kings Throne, is one of the comfiest and strongest folding chairs available on the market, and even after a log race in the sun, you will be able to have a short rest and get your legs up.
At less than the cost of a case of beer these chairs are a great investment for any pit!
Its not often the canteen is open or has anything good to eat. So a compact cooker like the Voyager portable BBQ, or the Voyager portable Grill, you’ll be able to cook up a storm feeding a whole army of race mechanics and pit lane specialists, you’ll probably end up feeding everyone in the pits, when they smell the tasty sausages, chicken skewers and rissoles you have in store!
There is no shortage of tool brands people swear by, but its hard to look past the well thought out and fully comprehensive Adventure Kings Bush Mechanic Tool Kit.
Designed by 4WDers to be able to fix just about anything that goes wrong in the bush, the Bush mechanic tool kit contains a hack saw, pliers, wire cutters sockets and even our favorite tool, a big hammer plus so much more. And with its self sufficient design is perfect for young race teams, just starting out.
Plus there is even a little more room inside to fit more vehicle specific tools, cable ties, and your lubrication of choice.
6. Camp lighting
Perfect for lighting up your pit site for early morning starts, and great for late afternoon repairs. A good quality 12v lighting system can make seeing even the darkest corners of your vehicles engine a breeze, ensuring you don’t lose any fasteners, or tools to the dark abyss!
7. 12v pressurized water.
After a long sweaty race, nothing beats a quick rinse in fresh water to feel a little bit cleaner before the drive home. A Kings 12v portable shower is perfect for rinsing yourself and even your vehicle to wash of dirt dust debris, and even mud if you’re an offroad kinda person.
8. Dirty gear bag.
To save stinking out the whole car, a dirty gear bag is perfect for chucking in all your dirty race gear, it’ll save ponging out your car and will even fit all of your rubbish from the pits, meaning you don’t leave any of your rubbish behind.
This is one of the most underrated bits of gear and can certainly make a smelly ride home a lot nicer!
There are plenty of other bits and pieces from 4WD Supacentre that will come in at the pits. Having the right gear can definitely make your race weekends a lot more fun and a lot less stressful!
