Camping is also available on the Saturday and Sunday night for a discounted advance price of £26 per pitch for 1 night or £34 per pitch for 2 or 3 nights.

Tom Caren, Show Manager at the British Motor Museum stated "Celebrating its 70th anniversary just goes to prove how immensely popular the Banbury Run is. Seeing hundreds of vintage motorcycles ride together is a motoring spectacle that deserves to continue to flourish."
