So it'll be my first year of nationals this season and i was wondering which tracks on the calender have camping and which dont?
Doing hotels at every event would be nice...... but not sure my budget will stretch that far:cry:

Thanks in advance for any help:thumbsup:

You can camp at every event....it's normally a small charge of a fiver a night or something!

Normally a good atmosphere on the Saturday night!

What F rating are you?

Thanks for the info, that means i can buy more tyres and beers for each event now:woot::thumbsup:

I presume you can camp fridays before the event aswell?, Driving from sunny south wales means at least a 2.5hr drive to any event:o

I acheived an F2 Licence from my regionals ready for nationals, i did TalyRain last year as a reserve and got to race both 2 and 4wd and really enjoyed it:D

Camping is available at Robin Hood Raceway, there is plenty of space, you do not need to book, there is a nominal fee of 1 or 2.

We are providing a 4000sqft marquee as always for FREE indoor pitting, there will be 240v available in here - there is a charge of 5 per person for the weekend to use this.

We have a toilet block with sinks and drinking water, we do not have showers onsite but there is a large MOTO services at Blyth (1.5 miles away) who do have good, modern showers open to the public (manly lorry drivers who have parked up use them).

We have excellent caterers who will be there from friday lunch time serving the normal bacon rolls chips, but also a proper sunday dinner (lamb or chicken with yorkshire pudding, roast potatoes etc) on the sunday, there will be also chile, curry, a bbq etc, the caterers really are excellent.

There is a coop in Blyth also and supermarkets in Retford (3.5 Miles), anything else just ask myself or one of the other organisers.

In theory any BRCA member F5 or above can compete. There are limited places though and places are offered to F1's first then F2 and so on. I have only completed one season of nationals. Drivers were mostly f1 and f2 with a smaller number of f3. Don't recall seeing any f4 or f5. I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong but this is my understanding of it.

matt prob best you do this summers regionals and attend some of the larger events like oople and get your head around what nationals are all about.

that will also get you a better F licence ready for nationals in 2013

not trying to put you off. I spent two summers realy trying to get my head around 1/10th racing, and i'm still very slow compared to 70% of the national drivers and they just keep getting quicker.

There are a few of us who get in on the lower grades. I managed to compete in 4 rounds last year being an F4 so it is possible.

Mainly those came off the reserve list though. If you don't enter, you can't expect to get in :)

Do you mean in general or at RHR?

I would suggest contacting each site directly so you know they will have room for you, Stotfold for instance I believe has limited space for caravans..?

Think you have to book for kiddy too. I'm sure it usually tells you if booking needed on the entry forms.
