F1 2021 Pitches
PITCH PRICE Includes up to 2 Adults & 2 Children
Pitches include one EHU and up to two adults & two children (under 14) and one tent/caravan with one vehicle. One camper van or Motorhome is also classed as one pitch.
Extra Persons and Vehicles are charged in addition depending on arrival day.
Please Note that Hook up and non hook up pitches CAN NOT camp together – Hook up pitches are limited in size due to cabling.
EHUs will be situated at the back of the campsite, 900m away from the entrance. It will be a 20-25 min walk from the hookup area to Club Corner at Silverstone. We request noise levels to be kept low but cannot be guaranteed.
Due to the hire cost of all the EHU equipment, once an EHU Booking has been made No refunds will be available. If Silverstone cancel the event more than 10 days before arrival you will be offered the chance to roll your hook up pitch to the new event date or request a refund less a £10 Administration Charge.
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 buy multiple EHU pitches.
At the Hook Up area there will be tap water and a single flushing toilet unit. Toilets & Showers will be in our main purpose built blocks located circa 400m away. Other facilities are available on the main campsite – see F1 Camping Page . Toilet Waste Disposal is available near our main entrance
Breaker Cable You Need a £20 CASH deposit – No Longer Needed for F1 2021
Please see Electrical Information below for important details about your electric supply In addition You MUST use the EHU Breaker Cable we give you between your caravan/campervan and the hook up plug. This is to ensure your unit doesn’t affect the electrics for others hook up pitch users. We will provide you with this breaker cable BUT we take a £20 CASH deposit for each cable which is refunded on return of the cable.
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.

This must be a 16a single phase CeeForm plug (blue) with suitable 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.
