Essential Information

The campsite opens at midday on the day before the event, and closes at midday on the day after the event has finished. Please note that facilities will be provided in full during this period. 

Caravans and motorhomes are permitted, and campers are also welcome to bring their car or bike onto the campsite, however this must be parked within their allocated pitch.

The campsite is accessed via the Donington Park East Entrance, DE74 2RP, which is the entrance closest to the airport and Castle Donington. On arrival to the venue, please follow the signs to the campsite, where you will be greeted by our Campsite Team, issued with a wristband and guided through the Williamson Tunnel to your allocated pitch. 

Animals are not permitted anywhere on site at Donington Park, with the exception of Guide/Assistance dogs. Drones are also not permitted.

BBQ’s are permitted, and must be raised off the ground. Open fires are not permitted.

If you have ordered a disabled camping pitch, you will also need to bring a blue badge on the day.


The campsite will offer full facilities for the duration of its opening hours, including toilets, showers and drinking water standpipes, as well as a dedicated area for caravan waste.

The toilets and showers are cleaned throughout the weekend. Please help us by keeping them clean and tidy.

There are hot showers located on the campsite. Please be aware that the queues can be long at peak times.

General waste and recycling bins are located around the campsite, and bin bags are provided at the campsite entrance on check in.

Bar and food outlets are available at the campsite village, and our restaurant and bar; Garage 39, located in the paddock will be open throughout the weekend serving breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Evening Entertainment

Any evening entertainment will be confirmed nearer the time.


The campsite is located in the infield, to the East of the circuit, offering views from the Old Hairpin, through to the Fogarty Esses/Roberts corners. The campsite is accessible by the East Entrance and through the Williamson Tunnel.


We work extremely hard to keep our site secure. We have a team of security guards patrolling our campsite 24 hours a day, in addition to our other campsite staff including fire and medical teams. Nevertheless, thieves have been known to operate in the area, so we highly recommend keeping your valuables safe at all times, either by locking them in your car, or keeping them on your person.

MSV will accept no responsibility for loss or damage sustained to these items.



Please keep noise to a minimum after 23:00 in the campsite. This includes the use of generators wherever possible, particularly if they are portable external units. Any campers that persist in making excessive noise after these times may be evicted from the campsite without refund of ticket fees, or even banned from the venue permanently in extreme cases.

Road-registered vehicles are permitted within the campsites, but scooters and mini-motos are not permitted. Please be considerate of others and keep vehicle movement to a minimum. Sleeping in vans is not advised.

Campers under the age of 16 years must be accompanied by an appropriate adult.

Strictly no animals are allowed on site at any time, however Guide/Assistance dogs are permitted when pre-arranged with the venue.

Fires are not permitted in the campsite (no wood burning). Barbecues are permitted but must be raised off the ground. Please dispose of coals and single use barbecues (once cool) in the metal bins provided.

Never leave a hot stove or barbeque unattended. Keep roadways and fire lanes clear at all times. Store fuel and generators away from ignition sources. Fire extinguishers are located at various fire points around the campsite. Use only in an emergency and raise the alarm immediately.

All pitches using BBQ’s or any cooking equipment should have their own suitable fire extinguisher. These can be checked by our fire officer should you need advice. 

The campsite speed limit is 5mph. Only drive if strictly necessary and watch for children. 

Secure tents and gazebos carefully - always prepare for high winds!

Never use a portable barbeque or gas burner inside a tent, awning or enclosed space (for cooking, or heating when cold). A cooling barbeque can also give off poisonous gas.

Never run a generator inside a tent, awning or confined space. Consider purchasing a Carbon Monoxide alarm and use it inside your caravan or motor home if running an installed gas appliance.

Always check your gas cylinder for damage before using. Maintain good ventilation when using portable gas (remember to use it outside only).

Never smoke near any gas cylinder and keep all ignition sources away.
