Mosport! Best Corner to Camp?

Will be at Mosport track for BMW Days 19-21 Aug and was wondering were the best area or corner to camp on for the best view of the races? Had some people tell me many years ago where the best place was but never having been there, have long since forgotten! Any help?

There used to be a hill on the outside of Turn 2 (trickiest on the track) that gave a good view of Turn 1 all the way to Turn 3 entrance. Shade trees, too. I don't think it's been so long that erosion has worn it down...

I don't know about camping there but as rdguy mentioned previously turn 2 is a great spot to watch the action. The hairpin at 5 is great as the north end of the straight for turns 8,9 and 10.

A nice place for you to visit when you are in town might be found in Port Perry...

BTW time to update your signature.

Thanks guys! Looking at Google maps confirms the trees are still there on turn 2 so I would think the hill is still under them! Will check that spot out!
