    Default Cleaning Car's on Site..

    Is there going to be any way of having running water on site on Sunday..

    My car is absolutely minging at the moment, and i am not going to get a chance to clean it between now and arriving at Santa Pod on Sunday..

    What are the option's, if any of cleaning it at Santa Pod?

    It has half of Europe's bug population glued to the front of it right now!!

    None basically - I've certainly never seen any taps/stand pipes that people can use.

    What other guys have done is brought a water container - jerry can/barrel - of water to give them the water supply, and some have those large garden type sprayers to shift loose dirt etc.

    You need to wash the car before, then cover the front with clingfilm to stop bug splats and flys etc!! Not my idea, someone suggested it to me. Just don't forget a hole for the rad!

    I can't remember which road its on but there's a BP garage (at least there was circa 5 yrs ago) about 2miles from Santa Pod (a sat nav with POI might find it for you), you could hose the worst of it off there and finish off with buckets of water when you get to the site?
