Camping + Electric Hookup for F1 2022

We are pleased to  again offer electric hook up (EHU) to campers at our Silverstone campsite for F1 2022 (hook up only available from Wednesday 6pm onwards).

Please note that the the hook up pitches are at the BACK of our campsite  – Long Walk to Silverstone – see below

You might prefer to camp on the main campsite (nearer Silverstone) and bring a small quiet generator (off by 10pm) instead

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.

Prices are based on your arrived date and a leave date of either Sun 3th July or Monday 4th July 

Please Note that Hook up and non hook up pitches CAN NOT camp together – Hook up pitches are limited in size due to cabling. Please also NOTE – you can not swap free included children for adults!  You have to add and pay for the extra adults accordingly.

Location
EHUs will be situated at the back of the campsite, 900m away from our entrance.  It will be a 30 – 35 min walk from the hookup area to Club Corner at Silverstone which is 1500m or so – bring your push bike!   We request noise levels to be kept low but cannot be guaranteed.

Please note it is no longer possible to drive part way back to shorten your walk to Silverstone. You MUST stay parked at your pitch unless leaving site completely.  Alternatively bring a small quiet generator and go on the main campsite nearer Silverstone

No Refunds
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.

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 buy multiple EHU pitches.

Facilities
At the Hook Up area there will be tap water and a single flushing toilet unit. Toilets & Showers and Toilet Waste Disposal will be in our main purpose built blocks located circa 400m away. Other facilities are available on the main campsite – see F1 Camping Page .

Electrical Details
Please take a look at the Electric hook up info download above.

Electric is provided by Temporary Diesel Generator due to the countryside nature of the campsite.  This means the supply has to be restricted to 8amps. You should note that 8 amps is not enough for a conventional household kettle. If you use too many items at the same time the power will trip. It also means that you will hear the generators running close by to the hook up area.

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 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 13amp 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.
