Camping at PRE Events
« on: July 07, 2014, 04:14:17 PM »

This policy continues for 2018!

We are doing the best we can to ensure that you don't have to pay additional monies at the gate at PRE events. There is nothing worse than showing up and getting hit with a camping fee, a power fee, or a gate fee (or sometimes all three).

Some things are beyond what we can provide. For instance if you want or need full RV hook up with water and sewer at VIR you'll have to pay the track additionally for that. At VIR what we are providing is 120 or 240 power to everyone using any of the paddock power poles. This also includes camping in the paddock.

There are plenty of power poles in the North Paddock with regular receptacles, and also 50 amp RV plugs. If you need a 30 amp RV plug just pick up a 50 to 30 adapter at any RV store.

There are no track entry fees for riders or their guests provided the guests enter along with a PRE rider. VIR does charge entry to the track for spectators, so if you have family or friends who want to watch the sure way to get them in at no cost is to have them enter when you do.

At NC Bike power and camping are free to all participants. There is generally enough power for everyone, but it is limited. First come, first serve. Entry is free, and your friends and family can enter for free too.

At Road Atlanta power and camping are free. There is generally a lot of power locations available, but having them all in working condition is not always the case. The power situation there has improved over the years but it's always a good idea to have generator. Entry is free for everyone.

 At CMP you will have free entry, basic 120 power for tire warmers etc, and free camping. If you need a 30 amp or 50 amp hookup you will have to pay CMP extra for that.

This information will also be included in pre event emails prior to every track day.

Talk about added value to a trackday!  Thanks John, Mike and Charles that extra $75.00 at the gate was always a sore spot...

If you want full hook up with water and sewer you'll need to contact vir to arrange for renting an rv camping site, otherwise you are covered for power and camping in the paddoock at no charge. It doesnt matter if you have an rv, tent, or enclosed trailer, PRE already covered the costs.

The power poles also have regular 120 volt recepticals too. If you need a 30 amp hook up just get an adapter from an rv store or make one (easy)

Every time I browse your forum I see something like this about PRE that's awesome and makes me excited to get down there to spend a weekend with you guys. I met Steve from Fluidology at Jennings last weekend and he spoke very highly of PRE which was no big surprise. He was very helpful and took good care of us with some cold tears and suspension issues. And btw John we had a great weekend this time and redeemed ourselves from last year's crash/monsoon debacle : )

I agree Steve is awesome. He's going to be providing trackside support at PRE events this year and we're really excited to be continuing that relationship. We'll be sending out a formal announcement about that soon.

How much will it cost for rv hookup at vir this year? I think all of the power poles in north paddock are 50amp.

Eric, the full hook up (water, sewer, electric) for RVs at VIR is in the upper gravel area near the stand alone shower/bathrooms in the north paddock area that overlooks the rollercoaster from T-14 to T-17.  Pretty much where no one sets up since it's so far from the tech shed and pit in/out area.  RVs/campers that plug into the power outlets in the general paddock area with the 15 amp standard plug and 50 amp RV outlet are no charge with the deal JRA has with VIR.  Just buy an adapter for your 30 amp plug to either go down to the 15/20 amp standard outlet, or a 50 amp to 30 amp adapter and you'll be good to go with the Weekend Warrior.

Come to think of it, I have an extra 30amp to 15amp adapter I'll give you when I see you at the track. You probably won't be able to run the microwave and AC at the same time on 15Amp, but that's a minor drawback.

Not me.

But a 50 to 30 adapter is pretty handy to have and pretty cheap at Walmart.

Hopefully see you at the track this year.

I learned a few lessons with my new toy hauler last year. One of them was that not every power pole has a 30 amp plug. After that really warm night in the hauler I went and bought every adapter I could find at the rv store. I have also been saving my extra change over the winter for a couple eu2000's for patriot and busy south days.

I am just trying to plan ahead for the season since I have already taken vacation days for every PRE event in 2015!! :thumbup:

Lol. SWEET!

Power is included and it doesn't matter what you are plugging in at VIR. At CMP you will have to pay the track extra if you need 30 or 50.

Edit: I should have realized I would derail the thread. :doh: Sorry, I'd like to keep in on topic for those who are looking for info on PRE policies.

If I had been faced with a 50 amp plug and I didn't have an adapter I would have just cut the plug off my trailer cable, stripped the ends of the wires, and stuck them directly into the 50 amp socket. The 50 amp socket wouldn't know the difference and niether would your trailer. It would work just fine, no kidding.

I'm sure I would have electrocuted myself and knocked out all the power in VA if I attempted that
