Camping

Cadwell allows us to camp at the circuit (please use the grassy area in the paddock - not the surrounding fields) in exchange for a £10 per head per night fee (sorry but yes, this increased in 2012; tis beyond my control).

Stop Press: As a special deal for Ixion, camping at the circuit will only cost £5 per person for the Wednesday and Thursday nights. If anyone's camping on the Friday night then that will still cost a tenner.

One Important Note: No Fires are allowed (yes this includes barbequeue's). Cadwell had some very bad experiences with the PB Frenzy a few years back and have banned all fires in the paddock outright. Please honour this - it would be a shame to lose the opportunity of camping in future years.

AFAIK, ickkle camping stoves to heat a cuppa on are allowed; just don't complain to me if a large man in an orange boiler suit with BHLG Octagon MSV printed on it empties an extinguisher into your tent.

There are toilet blocks at the circuit that are left open for campers..... ummm.. do I need to rephrase that? and there's a shower block in what was the toilet block by the scruting shed.

Hotels/B&B's

There are a number of Hotels and B&B's in the area although the main ones in Louth are normally fully booked within hours of the Trackday being announced.

Of note: the Kings Head (a favoured watering hole of Ixies in Louth) has now got some rooms refurbished and available from 2012; all very nice by accounts so contact Sharon on 01507 602965 and tell her you're booking for the Ixion trackday).

The Ixion@Cadwell Dinner

As in previous years we will be holding an evening dinner at the Kings Head in Louth. This will be on the evening of Friday the 8th ie after all the track activity so you can get sozzled and sober up on the Saturday morning before the trip home. See the Mallard Booking system to get your place.

Here's a list of some hotels in Louth. If you find out that the info shown here is wrong then please let me know ASAP and I'll change it. Likewise, let me know about other Hotels or B&B's that are being used by Ixionites.
