    I think you’ll find the quote at Litchlake is for the entire stay, we pitched our caravan Wednesday till Monday morning for £140 total, by far the most convenient site imo.

    We always camp on Litchlake in our caravan, it is the nearest site to the circuit, it runs right alongside the main entrance road, with a footbridge that takes you across the road, 10 minutes easy walking and you are in . . . .
    Litchlake has everything you need, decent showers, plenty of fast food outlets and stalls with all the usual F1 stuff.
    Some of the other camp sites are a real yomp away from the circuit, so this one really suits us as we are in the ‘more mature fan’ category. :-((
    Our favourite grandstand is Luffield B for the race.

    We were in stand M this year, which is the only covered stand apart from the pit straight, you will be extremely exposed to a VERY hot sun in the uncovered stands. It’s a pretty good view from there too, you can see the first corner, then they disappear behind, the reappear for turn five I believe it was, then off into the distance, we were more than happy with M.

    Covered stand at Silverstone to keep out of the rain, and covered stand in Spain to keep out of the sun . . . .lolz

    You can book your Sagales tickets online before you go, save queuing on the day, I’ve done ours, it was very easy, you then print off eTickets.

    In reply to Chris Gresty asking about the after parties, there is a big name concert on the Saturday evening which is always good, but the race after party is excellent, you need to get round to the stage area through the Copse tunnel as soon as you can, as obviously the nearer the front you can get the better, it gets unbelievably packed, but we love it.

    A lot of the drivers attend and are interviewed on stage, Jenson and Lewis always attend, Jake, DC, Eddie, Martin, Horner, Newey, Damon Hill, anyone and everyone.

    There is NO chance of autographs, absolutely none, but is well worth going, you can imagine the atmosphere when Jenson and Lewis appear.

    I have seen a couple of negative comments about Vale on here, we like it, you can see a lot of track for a long time, you see them coming in the distance, passing, and then off into the distance again, its a good stand in my opinion.

    For the last couple of years we have camped at Litchlake Farm, marvellously close to the circuit, it runs alongside the main road that leads to the main entrance, it has plenty of amenities, fast food, shops and showers, and a pedestrian bridge takes you over the road. It is a big site so no probs getting booked.

    If you book Luffield you can be in the circuit and your seat within 10 minutes, so it is ideal for us oldies or anyone with mobility problems, especially as you are on pavements the whole route.

    We have stayed at Whittlebury Park, which is excellent, but the path from the park is rougher walking of 20/30 minutes and brings you to the Copse gate.

    Hoping this is helpful, with everything so expensive it’s good to get it right.
