Staying at the campsites around the race track for several days requires some planning and equipment. Approaches to this topic are different: Some people do it basic with just a small tent and a sleeping bag, but the trend in the last years was more towards luxury setups with mobile bars, fridges, swimming pools, draught beer equipment and others. This chapter is a collection of what some CA Members have taken with them in the past and it can help you to compile your own equipment list. The list is by no means complete, essentials like underwear and trousers are not listed and the food & drinks of course will depend entirely on your individual taste.
As far as clothes are concerned, just be prepared for everything! Race week is always in summer in the middle of June and the last 20 years have seen some incredibly hot weekends with 35+ degrees Celsius, but it can also be quite miserable with just 10-15 degrees at night and plenty of rain, sometimes both within just a couple of days.
Take it easy, if you’ve forgotten something at home you can still stock up using the local supermarkets and shops, see the respective chapter of this guide for addresses.
