Overnight camping

I'm very new to this marshalling lark and would really appreciate some advice on the overnight camping at circuits.

Would I be better in a campervan or caravan?

What facilitates are available at the circuits, I've been to Mallory and Cadwell but would like to know what is available at other sites.

I think that you are asking about facilities at circuits for those that stay overnight in campervans and caravans? If so it is a varied as the circuits, and indeed depends on the event as much as the circuit. In short you need to get to know the circuit and the event to know what is available, and to be truthful you need to be very self-sufficient at most circuits. I marshal at Silverstone and Donington Park and can only speak with authority at either of these circuits. Have you looked at marshalsguide.com? A bit out of date but it can give some insights into marshalling at different circuits.

I'm not a marshal, but I'm a photographer and my wife is heavily involved in a racing club, so I'm often staying overnight.

We used to camp in tents, but invested in a motorhome rather than a caravan.

We tend to use the circuits showers and wash room facilities, but other than that the motorhome is entirely self sufficient. My wife is happy to drive it so thats good.

Ive decided to go down the campervan route for 2 day events, it will be pretty much self contained, fridge, beer, food. Most of the circuits that I will volunteer for are within a 2 hour drive so no need to stop over
