Brands Hatch heartache
My family and I are avid followers of most motor sport. Unfortunately most of our spectating is done via the TV but we did attend the Brands Hatch Rallycross Grand Prix.
The cars were great; the racing, what we saw of it due to the fog, was also very enjoyable. But never again will I travel to Brands. The police traffic control and organisation was virtually non-existent; both going in and coming out, we had to wait for periods of up to three-quarters of an hour without moving. Until we can get things in order and
think of the general public, plan in advance to avoid hold-ups of over an hour getting from the roundabout at the bottom of Death Hill, to the entrance, then many such as our family will not support the sport. Perhaps the police and the circuit organisers should visit Le Mans. The last time we visited there, we were on the open road and clear of the circuit within twenty minutes of the race ending.
