Frequently Asked Questions
Here is a list of the most frequently asked questions. If you have a question or query that isn’t answered here, please feel free to get in touch either by phone on 0117 290 9009 or here
If I place a booking with you, what happens next?
You will receive an automated email receipt immediately afterwards showing details of your booking. We will also be in touch just to check whether you have any questions. We will keep you up to date with what is going on with us in the months prior to the race. About one week before you are set to arrive we will send you an email containing lots of info such as contact phone numbers, maps, general info etc. Of course, if you have any questions at all at any time then do not hesitate to contact us. We are here to help.
Why is there a £100 damage deposit?
Our tents are expensive beasts and on very rare occasions they do get damaged so this is just to protect our investments. Rest assured as long as everything is okay, we shall return your deposit to you within a week of the event finishing. We will notify you when done.
Are tent prices dependent on the number of campers?
No. The price of each tent is fixed irrespective of how full it is. Any “per person” prices quoted are based on each tent being at full occupancy.
Which nights does my rental include?
You have the choice of up to four nights: Thursday/Friday/Saturday/Sunday. The minimum booking is for two nights. If you would like to stay for longer, each additional night will be charged at £30 per tent for a budget tent or a standard 2 person tent, £60 for a 4 person tent and £120 for an 8 person tent. We will be at the circuit on Race day, Qualifying, Practice and Pre-Practice night.
What if I want to stay just one night?
You are very welcome to stay just for one night but our minimum booking is for two nights.
Will I be able to park my car next to my tent?
Yes. The only proviso if the ground is very muddy then we may have to have the vehicles in a separate parking area to stop the ground being churned up. You will still be able drop off all your belongings and your car will only be a stone’s throw away in a drier area.
What about noise levels?
Our campsite will be subject to a strict noise policy for the benefit of all our campers.
Beyond 11pm our customers should quieten down. At Midnight and beyond, there should only be very low levels of noise thus allowing everyone to sleep.
This will be strictly enforced.
My booking finishes on Race Day Morning. What happens re my car and belongings?
Your booking ends at 10am but you are very welcome to leave your car with us and collect it after the race.
However you must clear your tent of all your property prior to leaving for the circuit. The reason is we shall want to dismantle and store your tent and will not be able to do so if you have not removed all your belongings.
If you do not remove all your belongings, you will be charged an extra day’s hire.
When can we arrive at your campsite?
Your tent(s) will be ready for you from 3pm on the day of your booking. You are very welcome to arrive before then if it is more convenient to you. You can leave your vehicle(s) with us and have a cuppa in the marquee to relax. Perhaps have a wander round the whole campsite to see what is going on or even take a stroll to the circuit.
What time is breakfast available?
7-9 non race days, 6-8 race day.
What about the icepacks?
You will need to bring them to the marquee where we will happily replace them for you each day.
What if I find a problem with my tent when we arrive?
Let a member of staff know immediately and we will remedy the problem.
Will you be set up at the circuit or off site?
At the majority of circuits we use campsites that are within about 10-20 minutes walking distance of the circuit. This is purely because the facilities at the campsites we choose are vastly superior to those of the circuit owned campsites. If in doubt, phone us on 07484 808 779 or contact us and we will explain the location of the campsite at your preferred track.
Is the cost of circuit entrance included?
No. The things included in our price to you are the hire of all the equipment, your campsite fee and your parking fee.
Do I pay for my own campsite ticket?
All camping fees are included in the cost of your tent BUT entrance to the circuit is NOT included so you do need to book this yourself.
How do I find you at the circuit?
The full details of the circuit location are available on our website (“Campsite” on the top menu). We will send you an email about a week before you are set to arrive with lots of information and included in this will be a detailed map. You will also be given a contact telephone number for the intentsGP team, who will be at the circuit long before you get there. If you get into any difficulties, you will be able to call this person for help or clarification on location details.
As this was my first time staying with Intents, I was very impressed from the moment I arrived.
With very friendly staff, comfortable bed, spacious tent and with the circuit only 10mins away I cannot fault the weekend at all. I will definitely be going back next year.
Our experience was heightened due to the staff on site, they were always helpful and had a smile. We would recommend Intents as a great way to add to the experience of an F1 weekend.
