Honley Show - DB extravaganza - 11th June

Post by broadsword » Sat Jun 11, 2011 10:52 pm

Honley Show today, only 3 miles from where the David Brown factory was. Chris Maddison has taken over the ruuning of the tractor section of this local and well regarded show and did a fantastic job, the tractor on show were a real eyefull and also a DB section was organised with regards to the 150th celebration of David Brown gears being formed in 1860 - allright a year out but whose counting!!!

A superb day all round - one or two pictures below - I need to save some for an article in the Tractor News mag, so a few of the more light hearted ones below.

I have to say one thing you do not expect on a well run event is road rage but look at the driver behind me, anyone would think I was travelling slowly :roll: . A picture of our Chairman Peter Murray with 6 POT PHIL showing less than appreciation towards our roving DB reporter in the field, also 6 POT PHIL receiving an award - I think it was for `6 cylinder that made it round the parade ring without throwing a rod award` :lol: - well allright best DB on Show, the Eric Hurst trophy new to this event.

A big Thanks to Madders for all the effort put in to this event and to the weather for staying mainly dry.

Cheers

Andy

Another picture from the Honley show,

Parade ring manager gets angry with one of the tractor drivers

`Oooh Ducky, drive that fast again and I`ll have to get in the cab and slap your wrist you naughty little boy`

Going to hide somewhere safe
