Clarke Mechanic’s chair, £26.99
Time used: 2013 racing season
What’s good? This has got to be one of the best racing accessories I own – so much so that when I asked someone to pack it in a van for a foreign trackday, and they forgot, I sulked for four days. Unless you’re lucky enough to have an expensive ramp, this is the way to work on your bike. You can just wheel your way around your bike in comfort and convenience. It has an adjustable seat height, a built-in tray for tools and is sturdily built. It’s comfortably survived a year’s worth of paddock life and being thrown in the back of a van.
What’s not? It rolls away if the surface isn’t flat. I once found it at the bottom of the paddock at Brands Hatch, despite my awning being parked up the top.
