I attend every WSB round in England and some BSB at places such as Silverstone and Brands Hatch.
When Donington was announced I just had to go.
I had half a day off work on the Friday, loaded up my van with bed, food, clothes the usual stuff.
I then had to endure a four-hour trip down the M1 (it's gonna be worth it in the end I thought)
I got to the camp site and to my amazement I was not allowed in.
No sleeping in your van I was told tents only.
"Whats the difference between a van and a motor home?"
Health and safety won't allow it they said.
So how come its not a problem at Silverstone and Brands Hatch even have an area speficically for vans. Are they and other race circuits breaking the health and safety laws? I doubt it.
I was told it states it on the paper work you get with your tickets.
Thats not a lot of use to me and many others who turn up on the day to camp and get our tickets when we are there.
I refused to buy a tent and give them my hard earned money,
I will never return to Donington again even if it was the last round and Nori Haga was going to win the championship there.
It ruined what should have been a brilliant weekend and I am sure many others will feel the same.
