A bank holiday picnic

Bank holidays. The glorious English tradition of picnics in the park, drinking warm cans of cider and fighting off swarms of wasps.

But Gary’s Picnic is a bit different; a trip to Shakespeare country to watch a shedload of loud and lairy American cars blasting up the quarter mile.

Four days later, I’m still deaf.

But the Yanks don’t get it all their own way. We Brits can do loud and lairy too.
