Cornerworker Personal Items
When planning what clothing or personal items to bring to the track, remember these specific points:
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.
- 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!
- White cotton shirt or jacket
- Good supportive shoes or boots (two pair are useful, and Gore-Tex is a plus)
- Hat with a brim
- Gloves (leather or cotton to protect from burns)
- Rain suit or poncho (NOT red or yellow)
- Water or juice
- Pen and paper
- Prescription medication
Personal Choice Accessories

- Pocket knife
- Lip balm
- Hearing protection (ear plugs or earmuffs)
- Small first aid kit (personal use)
- Hand-held scanner (set to 461.1375 Mhz, the MARRC safety crew frequency)
