Cornerworker Personal Items

When planning what clothing or personal items to bring to the track, remember these specific points:
  • The official MARRC Safety Crew color is WHITE.
  • Wear clothing in layers so you can adjust for temperature changes more easily. Layering also helps you stay warmer in cooler weather.
  • Wear natural fibers like cotton. Synthetics tend to burn or melt if you touch a hot engine part.
  • Shoes should be comfortable, preferably supporting the ankle, and even waterproof; wear socks for comfort and to prevent insect bites.
  • Bring extra clothing, even if you will only be at the track for one day. You cannot be over prepared!
These are some of the personal items that experienced safety crew members typically bring, bearing in mind that you will be outside all day in unpredictable weather conditions.
