I was thinking that the dangers of motorsport come from inside, not outside.

Booked my pitch at Huttopia Rambouillet just now.  Just need to do the qualification rides next.

I booked a pitch as well, including a few extra tents and people. I guess it'll be very easy to find 5 extra persons ;).

Do we need to book pitches now? Realistically are they going to run out soon?

The hotels have run out already, so I guess that we can expect the pitches to run out soon. That's why it's good to book for the maximum of 6 people so you can invite a few others over.

Yes. It will. This is why I'm not going to book a pitch myself just yet... hopefully one of you good people will be able to find room for me.

I'd be interested in tenting at this location, looks really good. It would also free up a hotel space for someone else.  ;D

Huttopia at Rambouillet has a nice, relaxed atmosphere. I camped there in 2007 and 2011 with the family. In 2015, I splashed out and hired a wood cabin for ten nights so we had a bit of luxury. I would have done the same this time but my eldest daughters GCSE results come out on the Thursday of PBP so I have booked a big pitch for PBP week and the family are staying at home until the Friday after PBP. I'll probably book a cabin for that second week.

Regarding parking, there has been the option to book parking for cars or motor homes when registering for the PBP the last few times.

I think that many Indian brevets have considerably more benign routes than is 'normal' elsewhere.

That's nothing.

I've completed a 1200 with a fat rider.

Have received this 'offer' from Huttopia:
Book by 31/12/2018 and save up to 40% off your stay.
To take advantage of this, enter the code EB19HUTTOPIA at the time of your reservation.
Seems to offer 15% 'off' for 7 day stays (eg Fri-Fri) and H Rambouillet is on the list.
'Reduced' the price to the same price I have already paid (on 30 Oct).
Site is 5km from PBP Event Centre.

Wish I'd read this a few months back. Tried booking something last night only to find most places in town had already sold out. Ended up panicking and paying for something very expensive and some miles away. Still, it is a summer holiday, right?

I have a spare bed in an apartment in Rambouillet. The original occupant can now no longer make PBP.  Fri / Sat before PBP and the Thu after.  Yours in return for half the booking cost (roughly same as an Ibis room cost without checking my booking). Booked a while back before prices shot up.

Owner happy to store small bags of stuff whilst riding PBP.
