Diary dates 2017


Isle of Man TT
27th May – 9th June

Even though it is reported as the most dangerous motorcycle road-race in the world, this never stops the excitement from building on this small island year in and year out.


Women's ICC World Cup
26th June – 23rd July

This year the tournament comes to England, with various stadiums including the Oval, Old Trafford & Edgebaston playing host to a number of matches. The tournament occurs every 4 years and this is the first time it has been brought to England so it will be a new and exciting experience.

24 hours of Le Mans
17th – 18th

This event has been held annually since 1923 and represents one leg of the Triple Crown of Motorsport alongside Indianapolis 500 and the Monaco Grand Prix. This would be a great trip with like-minded motorsport fans.


Tour de France
1st – 23rd

The multiple stage bicycle race returns for 2017, and is a fantastic event to visit across the Channel to cheer on your favourites. A campervan will easily eliminate those over-priced accommodation fees around the key stage areas. 

3rd – 16th

The oldest tennis tournament in the world is back for 2017, and it's crucial for any tennis fan to view the excitement and passion first hand. 

Formula 1 British Grand Prix, Silverstone
14th – 16th

The British Grand Prix was first held here in 1926 and with weekend camping facilities available over the event's duration, it would be a great opportunity to see the fast-paced sport in action, all with the luxury of a campervan to return to afterwards!


MotoGP British Grand Prix, Silverstone
25th – 27th

The thrill of this race just cannot be experienced through the TV screen! With camping facilities also available, there really is nothing stopping you from getting in on all the action.
