Field Day 2011

Another British Field Day has come and gone, and it was a good one. We had good weather (hot but not blistering), good cars, good bikes, good food, and good folks all around. I don’t have numbers handy but there was a nice selection of cars, including many that were new to me. Food was provided by the Chow truck – nice folks and really tasty food.

Jon Hermance put together a really neat little road course, that was intentionally slower than previous years (keeps things safer) but still challenging. For the first time in my 8 years at BFD I even took a few laps around the course in my MGB. Very fun stuff. Most good times were around 36 seconds, with one red and white Mini scoring a 33.3 second time. Truly amazing! Thanks as well to the Boy Scouts who manned the crosswalk and kept folks safe.
