Camping
More info

Do you want to experience everything Gatebil has to offer? Then camping is a must!
Here you will find information and rules of procedure that are important to follow in order for everyone to have a good experience at the Camping area.

NO ADVANCE BOOKING
All Gatebil festivals have large camping areas where everyone can fit in. Groups that wish to stand together are asked to arrive at Gatebil at the same time, alternatively to hold a place for the people in the group who arrive later.

CAMPING IS INCLUDED IN YOUR FESTIVAL TICKET
All visitors with a festival ticket can stay at the campsite. Camping is included in the ticket price. Caravans can be parked for free on the campsite, but you must buy a “car pass” for the car pulling the caravan. “Car pass” is required for all vehicles used on the campsite. The car pass costs SEK 500 when purchased in advance or SEK 650 at the entrance and is valid for the entire weekend. It is the same price for passenger cars, motorhomes and other types of vehicles.

Example: 3 friends come driving in the same car with a camper and will stay at the campsite. They each buy a festival ticket, as well as 1 car pass for the car pulling the caravan. The car pass is valid for the entire stay at Gatebil.

CAMPING OPPORTUNITIES
Both the festival campsite and the Race-Camp are right next to the track, so close that you wake up in the morning to the smell of tire smoke and roaring tuned cars driving at full speed a few meters away.

For teams that will drive, we have our asphalted depot with access to electricity. These places are limited and some areas are reserved for teams in advance, and the selection of this is made by Gatebil. Priority is given here to competing teams that have been around for a long time and with the goal of creating a structured depot that is pleasant for visitors.

At the festival campsite, there can often be a good atmosphere in the evening. For those of you who wish to camp in a slightly quieter area, we offer family camping. The campsite is located along the road towards Skänninge, next to the main entrance. We want all of you to experience the best festival possible, but because there are only limited places available in family camp – first come, first served.

SHOWERS AND WC
On the area map for Gatebil, you will find markings where there are showers and toilets.

AFTERTRACK  
On all Gatebils, there is Aftertrack in the evening. The aftertrack offers concerts, shows and DJ gigs on the large outdoor stage. All visitors over 18 with a festival ticket have access to the Aftertrack.

RULES

  1. CLEAN YOUR OWN CAMPING AREA – If it’s a bit messy at your campsite during the festival, no security guard will ask you to clean up. But before you travel home, the campsite must be in the same condition as when you arrived. It is not permitted to leave sofas, refrigerators, broken caravans, etc behind. Trash must be collected in garbage bags, which are then taken care of by our cleaning staff.
  2. FIRE, GLASS AND DRIVING – Risk of fire is something we all have to take seriously – common sense is what you need to use. Barbecues are permitted unless otherwise specified. Glass bottles are not allowed. Broken glass is a danger to festival visitors and vehicles. Walking speed applies to all motor and electric vehicles at the festival.
  3. LET THE CAR STAND! – On the campsite, it is not allowed to drive a car after 21:00. It is only permitted to drive cars on the campsite when you arrive or leave Gatebil. Starting engines and revving are also not allowed.
  4. SECURITY GUARDS AND POLICE AT GATEBIL – The security guards are responsible for ensuring that visitors have a pleasant stay at Gatebil, the police also visit the festival at regular intervals. Fire department personnel and the infirmary are open 24 hours a day. See area map to find the location.

Track Driving
More info

At Gatebil festival there will be a large variety of cars that drive on the track. Everything from regular street cars to pure racing cars that do drifting and/or track driving. There is simply an incredible amount of different things to see!

Everyone who wants to has the chance to participate. Both registered and unregistered cars are welcome to join our Track Driving!

Track driving for everyone
More info

STRAIGHT LINE
This heat is for you who want to drive on the track with your car, but not slide or drift. In the straight line group, you can test your sports car, rebuilt car or just see what your old GTI can do on the track. Maybe to try to improve your lap times or just feel like driving over the speed limit legally. In this group, therefore, drifting is not allowed. If you want to skid or drift, do not drive the Straight Line!

OPEN LINE
When you would like to try out sliding through the corners or you are just in the beginning of your drifting carrier, this is the heat for you. Drive fast and drift in the corners. In Open Line, you keep a little more distance between the cars so that everyone has the opportunity to test drifting in a slightly “calmer” way. You are not allowed to drift on the straights or use the hand brake to set up the car into the corners. If you are a racing driver in drifting, you should not drive in this group, then it is Drift Line that suits you better!

DRIFT LINE ROOKIE
Drift Line ROOKIE fits for you who just want to drift – preferably all over the course at all times! You can practice your skills and drift all the way around the track. If you dont have 1000 horsepowers and are not a trained drifter – this is the pass for you!

DRIFT LINE PRO
Here we find the fastest drifting PRO drivers. If you are a racing driver in drifting, this is where you should drive. Here you drive faster and with less distance to each other with 100% operation all the time. If you have drift licence and a car with plenty of horsepowers this might be the heat for you!

Drifting

How to get here?
More info

Mantorp Park is located right along the E4, between Mjölby and Linköping in Östergötland. Take exit no. 110 if you come by car on the E4. Continue a few hundred meters towards Skänninge (pass Circle K on the right), and the main entrance is on the left. Most trains stop in Linköping, and many in Mjölby. From these two cities there are commuter trains to Mantorp. There is an airport in Linköping, but unless you fly KLM or SAS, we recommend Stockholm-Skavsta in Nyköping where many low-cost flights fly to.
