    As with all major motor sport events I would expect the B&B's to be very expensive round the race weekend. That's if you manage to get a booking. Never camped at a race circuit but from what I've heard it can be a great experience and really make a weekend, friendly drunk petrol heads all having their own bbq's and parties in the evenings.

    That why i was thinking of camping,having a few beers and just experiencing the atmosphere and having banter with other people there.
    It will be camping most likely.
    Had a look at the prices and it doesnt seem too bad in comparison to some other motor sport events.

    The prices for camping look very competitive in comparison to say F1 or other major motor sport events. I would have expected it to cost more TBH.
