Suit designed for karting – as others have said it must be abrasion resistant.  Same for gloves.  A rib vest is a good idea.  You might be able to get away without it in LO206 if the track and curbs are smooth, but rib injuries are common, painful, and take a long time to heal.

Neck braces may be mandatory – check your rules!  I’ve never been a fan of the foam donut neck collars.  I think they’re probably worthless in a rollover except to stop your helmet cracking your collarbones.  I’ve used the EVS brace for years, but there are others out there at various price points.
