    Ascot 2011.

    Drunken Ascot brawlers were 'champagne-quaffing friends fighting over pretty blonde in her twenties'

    'Suddenly punches were being thrown and the girls were laughing' says spectator

    The drunken brawl that tarnished the reputation of the 300-year-old Ascot race meeting was started by a group of drink-soaked friends over the attentions of a pretty racegoer, eyewitness claims.
    For centuries the highlight of the summer calendar for the well-off and well-connected, the glorious Ascot atmosphere turned sour as one eyewitness watched the drunken group topple from good natured banter into violence.
    One woman said: 'All the men in the fight appeared to be friends - it looked like they arrived together and they were having a lovely time, but they had been drinking heavily .

    Broken chairs and glasses litter the scene and one man is still wielding the champagne bottle as another man shields his face


    Getting nasty: Spectators throw drinks - and punches as onlookers watch in horro


    'They were joined by a group of girls, who looked like they were leading them on.
    'Then suddenly punches were being thrown and the girls were laughing.
    'I heard one of them say: 'Oh are they fighting over me.'
    'Some of the men involved in the fight looked quite young, but I think the man who got hurt was in his 40s. People behind the bar pulled the men apart.
    'Security was really bad - they took ages to come.'
    Another visitor to the Berkshire racetrack, Sophie Healy, 25, from nearby Windsor, Berks., said: 'I can remember one guy just keep going "are you mugging me off (insulting me)?"
    'The tone of his voice was really aggressive and then they started pushing and shoving.
    'We got out of the way and then suddenly are table with a newly bought bottle of Champagne went flying.
    'They were biting and kicking each other."
    As the Queen’s favourite racing event celebrates its tricentenary, fights have been breaking out in recent times amongst the male racegoers at the historic Berkshire course, watched by worse for wear women who can barely stay upright in their high heels.
    A quick glance across the terraces reveals a sea of flesh and unsightly tattoos – of women in cheap, tawdry dresses and men who have shunned the expected top hat.
    Many believe that the social fixture, once a prestigious highlight of the summer season, is becoming as bawdy as the meetings at Aintree and Cheltenham.
    Yesterday was Gold Cup Day, commonly known as Ladies’ Day, but there was little evidence of ladylike – or gentlemanly – behaviour as the event ended in two arrests.
    In a blatant disregard for Ascot’s strict behavioural code, a drunken brawl broke out by a Victorian band stand.
    Eight men started to fight on the lawn by a champagne bar just yards from the The Royal Mile, Ascot’s home straight.
    Terrified racegoers fled to avoid being struck by stray punches as the drunken group, some egged on by female friends, armed themselves with bottles and chair legs.
    The men, who had been drinking £98 bottles of Laurent Perrier Rose Champagne, ended up being pulled apart by members of the military.



    And not only a fight BUT A LADY WITH A TATTOO.(Does anybody know her perchance?)

    I think there will be a hike in ticket prices on the horizon

    Unfortunately there are many chavs who have large amounts of cash. "Money Brokers", et al.
