German term or phrase: Feld
"In den Saisons XXXX, XXXX und XXXX ist ein Feld von min. XX Fahrzeugen pro Veranstaltung am Start gewesen."

And also here:

"Ein qualitativ hochwertiges Feld, welches auf international bedeutenden Strecken in X, Y und Z im Rahmen von hochwertigen Serien antritt."

From a German text about motorsports (Formula racing, that kind of thing). X, Y and Z are the names of countries.

I can't fathom the meaning of "Feld" in this context.
