Whether it is your first race weekend or you are a seasoned pro, it is essential that you carefully think about what you need to bring with you to make the most out of the weekend.

Torch: A torch is a must for any camping experience as they allow you to see in your tent at night, help you to find the toilet in the dark or simply for when you are sat around the campsite once the sun goes down.

Generator: A generator is a fantastic piece of equipment that will allow you and your party electricity whether it is for playing music, cooking or for lighting. Portable generators are available from companies like SGS.

Camera: You will certainly want to remember this fun excursion, so be sure to pack a camera or simply use your phone to capture moments over the weekend.
