We had a beautiful day for the annual British Field Day — not too hot, and no rain (or hail!) in sight. Jon Hermance once again set up a nice road course and quite a few folks gave it a try. As always there was a nice field of cars and bikes, and there seemed to be a good number of spectators as well.

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.
