EHUs will be situated at the BACK of the campsite, 900m away from the entrance. LONG WALK It will be a 30 min plus 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 not possible to drive part way back to shorten your walk to Silverstone. You MUST stay parked at your pitch unless leaving site completely. If you have walking difficulties we suggest you look for another campsite nearer Silverstone.

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 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 Moto GP Camping Page .
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. You should note that the Generators do result in some background noise, but with out the noise there is no electricity!
Live in caravans & campers
