Default Drag Racing At the Half Way

Hey All,
I just wanted to highlight something that I noticed,or rather was annoyed by at the drag racing last weekend.
I was down with friends and family at it,and really enjoying the day.We were all up on the ditch behind the barriers and railings.
There was a big gang of bikers,and the only was to describe them is that they werent Irish,and had actual flags of their country on all their gear,eastern europe country.
They were sat there for a while,no probs there,but when they left there was a mass of rubbish left over,from bags,to food packing and cans.
Its just that people go to the end of the earth to organise these great events and by someone being lazy and not picking up their rubbish can tarnish a whole event for the future.
Thanks for reading guys n galls

hedz there was 4 if not 5 big blue barrels on the hill alone as far as i seen
and some around the paddock area!

very good point there Kevin....

And imo if ya see something flying through the air anywhere near ya the natural reaction is to duck, can't afford to do that at 100mph +

Totally agree. We're one of the worse in developed world for the state of the place with litter,, so the fact they weren't Irish has nothin to do with it.

It's a real fuckin Irish thing.

I lived in Singapore for a while an I would cross a busy road to stub out a fag.

Wouldn't matter if ya had 100 bins, some fuckers are just thick ignorant cunts.

Twas a long enough day for the event stewards takin down barriers\tannoys etc, without havin to pick up someone elses shit.

Thanks for the comments folks.
We had a gang cleaning up on the evening and I went down myself with a few others the day after.
Lads;ye would not believe the amount of rubbish all over the area.We managed to get 6 or 7 bags on the top road alone .most of the rubbish was not thrown there on the day but you have to pick it up so the club doesn't get associated with running a dirty event.
The sad thing is that almost every road in the country is as bad if not worse;and was that way a long time before our country had lots of foreigners living in it.
