Well, as a Welshman, I am proud to see that yet again Wales have provided the necessary funding for our round of the WRC

The MSA spent most of its reserve budget a few years ago to make sure our event went ahead after there was a falling out with the WAG and the budget was revoked for that years event

But now we have very good news in that the Budget for 2012 is in the bag and that provides security for future events

I only have one gripe and that is they need to provide better organisation regarding access to car parks on the stages, I was dissapointed to be turned away from Dyfi East only to find another way in, also didnt get to Myherin thanks to the Road from Llangurig roundabout being Jammed with people trying to get into Sweet Lamb

This needs to be addressed for next years event !

Dafyyd, its the same every year. I hired a motorhome for the event and have a few complaints.

1. Poor parking where cars were parked on both sides meaning I had to squeeze past to get out as did all the other campers and vans.

2. Fecking childish idiots playing loud music and letting off fireworks at 1AM when people are trying to sleep.

3. The Hitler marshalls "Too dangerous to stand there mate, move back" although its perfctly safe for him to stand there. 3 guys in Monument were told to move a foot as they were lent on the rope, a rally car would have taken out 5 marshals stood right by the track, 3 hay bales and scaffolding with 2 WRC cameramen on before getting to these guys. Also one Marshal faced up to a guy and his son who just wanted to cross the road at Conwy bay so much so, the guy said "Your not Police so leave me alone and let me cross" to which the "Marshal" was in his face.
