This is what I'd consider essential for the first time:

1. Helmet
2. Torque wrench + 17MM socket + 3 inch extension
3. Ice chest with water/sports drinks
4. Foldable chair
5. Sunscreen + Hat
Garek - linsM3 has been and gone...she's hooked...LOL!

I think a set of track rims, tires and the equipment to change are next, then the brake pads...which nedds a hex wrench, G-clamp and a couple of screw drivers on top of the rest.
