Carl... Ibis Lodge mate at Wellingborough

10 miles away... £34 a night!

http://www.ibishotel.com/gb/booking/hotels-list.shtml

Quick before they go!

Its ridiculous though, when ever there is an event going on at SIlverstone they hike the prices big time at Travelodge / Premier Inn etc

I just checked my booking.. i paid £31 a night when i booked last week!

All the travelodge's around Northampton have rooms available, cheapest are Kettering and Wellingborough at £30.25 per night.

The Ibis hotel in Wellingborough also has rooms available from £34 a night. Stay away from the Premier inn as they are charging over £100 a night!!!!

We are just waiting on final numbers but we should have a number of rooms available on site...

Hotels are seeming very expensive, the dorm style rooms are not cheap either, how much is it going to cost to camp? I'm assuming camping will be available?

That's a bit better, I'm not worried as I'm staying in hotels this year, but I'm also trying to sort out this year for my team drivers, and a few of them are wanting to camp at all the events. So if I could find out camping prices, or if you have to book a space in advance for a caravan/camper van, it would be much appreciated!!!

Hey first time I'll be doing the nationals really can't afford hotels. So like you've been asked a few times on this thread- whats the camping arrangements? And how much is it going to cost me to camp

I also think if there is no camping is this the right venue to hold a national? If no camping is available I'm going to write to the brca to lodge my complaint.

the weekend is expensive enough with fuel being at an all time high to put £100 on the cost due to having to pay for a hotel is scandalous to say the least and could push it out of the financial reach of younger non sponsored drivers or anyone who hasn't got money to burn

As I see it this goes against the ethos of the brca

Answers please

Thomas
