Chirk was a joke
This, Saturday's RallyFest stage, was the low point for me. The organiser's completely underestimated the number of people that would turn up, so the car park was full ages before any cars arrived. We parked well over a mile away, and when we got to the Castle were told there was only one way in, and we'd have to walk another mile. So I did what countless others did: hopped over a fence and walked across the parkland. For free. No marshals, no ticket checking, no-one to stop us and because the organisers hadn't predicted this, expecting everyone to stay penned within a single zone, they were then faced with people standing right next to thin iron fences on the outside of scary fast bends. Not safe. I hope the organisers have learned from it.
