Sorry for my incompetence, but does the 3 day ticket include camping for the 3 days as well? I might only make 1 night and 2 days, but it’s definately worth the 3 day ticket at only £30! Plus it gives me the option to go again if I can make it :wink:

Ticket is without camping, we’re working on campsites, narrowed down to a couple. Will get posted up later and people can decide…

Gotcha! Thought camping was on site for a minute… :sweat_smile:

CAMPING UPDATE

Well we have a couple of options for camping, the first is Donington Park Farm House

ȣ20 per night
» just 1 mile away

The other current option is Kings Mills Park

ȣ10 per night
» 3 miles away
They cater for Download Music Festival so we won’t be much of a shock to them :laughing:

Would be good to get this sorted in the next couple of weeks, there are so many shows to get through in April! What are peoples preferences? We can of course ask for a group discount on the three days camping so pricing may be cheaper depending on numbers… but we need numbers! :smile:

I might camp one night, but just travel back and forth as Donington’s only ~40 minutes away. If you haven’t already seen, the timetable is up - http://www.doningtonhistoric.com/the-races/ :smiley:
