Spares & Equipment Checklist

A practical guide

The following is intended to be used in conjunction with our ‘Preparing Your Car’ Advice page. Remember that spares and tools add weight, placing extra strain on the car, increasing fuel consumption and sapping performance, so don’t pack things you can easily find en route. Below is a list of items that might be carried on a long-distance endurance rally, many of which may be omitted on shorter events. The list is for guidance only but may be printed as a preparation checklist, as a reminder of where items are stored and/or to record the value of contents shipped with the car, which may be required at Customs. You should also refer to national regulations to ensure you have everything required by law in the countries you are visiting.

Most of the things on this list may be ordered online from our partners, Holden Vintage & Classic. Click on an item to visit the relevant website page.
