Electric Hookup (F1 and MotoGP only)
We are pleased to offer electric hook up (EHU) to campers at our Silverstone campsite for both F1 and Moto GP events. Hook up only available from Wednesday onwards.
Pitch Size: You must be able to fit your Entire Camp, including your vehicle, on to the pitch size 7m x 8m. This is due to the cabling restrictions. If you need a larger EHU pitch you will need to pay for multiple EHU pitches.
Location: EHU will be situated at the back of the campsite, 900m away from the entrance. It is in/near a quiet family area, where we request noise levels to be kept low but can’t be guaranteed.
It will be a 20-25 min walk from the hookup area to Club Corner at Silverstone. Cars (only) will be able to drive part way back to reduce the walk to 15 minutes.
Price: All payable in advance and non-refundable. The Hook Up Options are:
F1 2019 Prices:

Facilities: At the Hook Up area there will be tap water and a single flushing toilet unit. Showering will be in our main shower block nearer our entrance. Other facilities are available on the main campsite.
You will need to pay electronically.
Once we have your completed EHU Booking Request Form, we will confirm availaiblity and payment details.
When paying please add Reference as follows: F1/EHU/ or MGP/EHU/your initial &surname to allow us to allocate payments. eg:F1/EHU/CWilson
Your EHU will not be booked until a completed booking request form and payment has been received AND you have been given an EHU Booking Reference.
Once a Booking Reference has been given no refunds will be available. This is due to cost of hiring in all the EHU equipment. No bookings will be accepted after 2 weeks prior to the event.
On Site Arrival:
You will receive a EHU Pass on arrival, please only pitch in the EHU allocated to you. If you have additional persons or vehicles to pay for this will need to be paid for on arrival, so that you have the correct vehicle passes and wristbands for your group.
You will be given a EHU Breaker Cable to use on your hook up. We take a £20 CASH deposit for each cable, refunded on return of the cable.
Please note, if you can not fit your Entire Camp including vehicle in to the pitch area then you will be required to move your camp on to a non electric camping area.
Electrical Details: A single 16 Amp single phase CeeForm Socket will be provided for your plot giving 8 amp allowance per pitch.
The electrical supply will have 1 no 30mA RCBO to provide fault & overload protection. This supply is rated at 8 amps. You should note that 8 amps is not enough for a conventional household kettle.
You can draw 8 amps; as we have temporary diesel generators rather than mains power, we have to restrict the usage somewhat. You could run a kettle or heater or shower (for example) but not all at the same time. If you use too many items the power will trip.
Live in caravans & campers: Need to bring a double insulated three core cable which is of an outdoor grade and has a 16a single phase CeeForm socket on one end and a plug on the other. This must be a minimum 2.5mm cable.
Tent Campers: Need to bring a suitable cable for their hook up. This must be a 16a single phase CeeForm plug (blue) with sutiable grade of double insulated three core outdoor cable. 1.5mm or larger (twin and earth is NOT acceptable)
The other end of the cable should be a 13a socket with some form of protection, electrical and mechanical. The cable should ideally be 20m long but a maximum of 30m.. The 13a socket must be kept off the ground, under cover & away from liquids.
The Electric will be provided by Temporary Diesel Generator due to the countryside nature of the campsite. This means the supply has to be restricted to 8amps. If you use too many items at the same time the power will trip.
Dadford Road Campsite reserves the right to refuse connection without refund if:
- They feel your equipment is not fit for purpose or does not meet the required standards or specification
- Your hook up causes persistent trips or trips out other users.
- Your camping unit does not fit in to the allocated Pitch Area.
- You cannot provide the proof of payment for the pitch
It is your responsibility as Camper to ensure that the plug, cable and associated sockets used to connect between the distribution board and the Campers unit/pitch are safe and fit for purpose.
Dadford Road Campsite will not accept responsibility for any accident or loss arising including from the use of unsafe & unsuitable equipment connected to the electrical supply.
