track day, where do I hide my keys???

I will be going to my first trackday in two days, its the buell inside pass trackday @ eagles canyon raceway... there will be all the 09 buell bikes to test ride, as well i am also bringing my bike along for the ride... im renting a uhaul trailer and hauling my bike with the minivan, so I can have a nice air conditioned ride home

My race suit that I am borrowing from a friend doesnt have any pockets, so where do I put all my stuff??? like wallet, car keys, bike keys, disk brake lock key, cable snake key... I surely cannot throw them all in the van and lock myself out, and I sure dont want to have them hanging there for the taking... kuz i will be riding my bike as well as their bikes, so when as Im riding theirs, im not riding mine, so where do I put the keys???

keep the car locked up and put the key on top of a tire. ive been to about 15-20 trackdays and have never worried about anything. wallet in car, all doors locked but 1. keys tossed in the center console. but i usually pit with my track buddies so i have no fear. but becarefull, theres always ass-hats everywhere.

Hidakey

Put a key in one of those hidakey things, or I have even seen people put a key to their car in the exhaust pipe (once it cools), I have seen people tape one to the inside of their boot.

I've done a few track days by myself. I never lock anything when I'm out for a session, and I've never had anything taken from me. Everybody there is pretty much looking out for everybody else. You'll have nothing to worry about.

You guys are more trusting than I, I always keep my wallet and keys on me and couldn't see myself without em. No pockets eh, when there's a will there's a way--a simple thought: fanny pack

I wear under armor, it makes taking the leathers on and off much, much easier. But for your first day you'll be OK with gym short and a muscle shirt. Just make sure they aren't super baggy basketball shorts, that'll be pretty uncomfortable since leathers are pretty tight in the crotchal region.

I'm on board with ryan in both his responses. I've been to three events and didn't lock anything up. Heck, even my radar decector was out in the open. No issues. But two events required memberships so its kinda a club mentality, I think, and the third was a really pricey event not likely to draw thieves

I wear UnderArmor for heat reasons though if I were going out next month, for warmth reasons. I use "bicycle shorts" which are basically spandex shorts, but again in October I'd go with running tights (full length spandex pants). I also bring extra socks to change them out after my feet have sweat a while.
