    Had a great weekend at Donington, We were support team for my brother who had a track day booked on Monday,

    We stayed at Donington Park Farm Caravan Park, it's a rather large caravan park (we much prefer CLs etc) and though fairly well laid out there were some downsides in our opinion

    As there are very few sites in the area the prices are in our opinion really expensive,
    Motorhome and 3 people with hook-up it was £26 per night. :Eeek: (We didn't realise until Sunday that our power point wasn't working and we'd in fact been running on the leisure battery :Doh:)
    Although they do say there is noise from East Midlands airport it really is LOUD.
    There weren't any signs on the taps and we had to presume it was drinking water.
    To top it all they charge £1 for a 5 minute shower. :Eeek::Eeek:

    So good weekend but back to smaller quieter sites for us in future

    Was the paddock not in use at the track ? I would have thought that would have been available to track day entrants.

    No there was Truck racing on Sunday so we couldn't get on site before 7 am on Monday and with working today we had come home early evening.

    That looks A Proper Job under your awning.

    It'd be a brave man who'd nail that down the esses.
