MEET THE TEAM
Steve Field - Driver/Co-Owner
Steve's love of drag racing started back in the 70’s with many happy memories at Blackbushe.
In 2003 he was given the old Thunderbird chassis and with the choice of spending hours at home alone or joining him in the workshop, Lesley became involved and developed a passion for engine building.
After many long winter nights, we were ready for the 2004 season in which we debuted the car as The Black Pig with the ex Pony Express 1933 Plymouth body.
With his eye for detail, passion for building and thrill of being on the track, it was only a matter of time before the Altered had served its purpose and it was time to retire it and build our own.
Lesley Field - Co-Owner/ Crew Chief
2009 saw the launch of the 1st Slingshot with all works being done "in-house" and appropriately named Black Pig Too. This lasted 4 years before Steve decided the next one would be better.
Winter of 2013 and the drawing board was back out, with the launch of the 2nd slingshot Black Pig Too making its debut in 2014.
Lesley is in charge of organising the race entries, food, beer, cooking and making sure we all know when we are racing. Her #1 priority is making sure Steve is safely strapped in, closely followed by making sure the engine is good to go.
Chris Head - #1 Crew/Sounding Board
Chris joined the team in 2014 following his 1st trip to the track at a R.W.Y.B event. He asked if he could crew for the weekend to get a feel for drag racing as this was new territory to him. 8 Years later he has become an invaluable member of the team and a very good friend.
A sounding board to both Steve when things are not quite right with the car and to Lesley whenever she needs someone to rant and rave at. An all round ace guy who helps make it happen.
Nicole Head - Tow Car/Social Media Guru
Nicole was originaly the back up girl for Scott and Gina with the Tikki Munki Comp Coupe.
With the passing of Scott and after being chased mercilessly by Chris, Nicole joined the team in 2018.
Whatever needs doing Nicole is there at the ready, from towing 3 race cars, generaly helping with the car, picking up emergency supplies or doing her social media bit, nothing is too much trouble. She has become an integral part of the team.
June 2022 saw this lovely couple finally tying the knot, with both Steve and Lesley taking an active role in their wedding, it's fair to say we are more than a Drag Race Team, we are a family.
