2017 Motorsports Guide
If you are planning to take in one of the many Motorsports events to take place in the UK, then a campervan really is the ideal way to do it. It is not just a case anymore of turning up on race day to take your seat in the grandstand or at the roadside and watch cars or bikes roar by for a few hours. Now, with track tests, qualifying days, pit-lane tours and not forgetting all the social aspects of a major track event, the enthusiast is talking 3 to 4 days of activity and a week in some cases.
Whether you are attending the Grand Prix at Silverstone or travelling to the Isle of Man for the TT, a Lovely Campervan will give you all the comfort and calm away from the sounds and smells of the main event. So much more civilized than a leaky tent! Guaranteed warmth, a fully equipped kitchen and a hot shower – sheer bliss!
You can hire one of our campers sleeping up to 4 Motorsports junkies complete with Freeview TV & DVD, luxurious bedding, fully equipped kitchen and a bike rack so that you can get right to the heart of the action on race day.
Here’s just a selection of the major Motorsports events this year.
