Camping at Santa Pod

Postby paulrichardson » Fri Aug 18, 2017 5:50 pm

Hi Guys,

I've never been to Transitmania before (sorry), but our camper conversion is (more or less) finished, so we might give it a try this year (if I can convince my darling wife).

I've a couple of questions regarding camping (I realise Santa Pod is a new venue this year).

Do we Transit owners camp together, or is it just a free for all with the rest of the Drag racing attendees?

Does anyone know how good the facilities for camping are? (I've already read that here are no hook ups).

Roughly how many Transits are likely to be in attendance ( 10, 100 or 1,000)

Regards,

Paul

Anyone driving anything can camp together, but obviously, the main "show" is only for Transits 8)
