Putting the hammer down on a world-famous driveway

Later next month, speed addicts the world over will descend on Goodwood House in the U.K., each vying to strut their stuff in the annual Goodwood Festival Of Speed Hillclimb event. However, they’ll really need to bring their A-game if they hope to make it into the top 10 fastest times ever recorded at the event, as evidenced in this 9-minute, 16-second video.

The vid shows each of the top runs in its entirety, ranging between 45.08 seconds for the number 10 spot, to 41.6 seconds for the number one spot. The breadth and variety of cars competing here is staggering, including standouts like the squirrelly Toyota Tacoma driven by Rod Millen, the no-holds-barred Subaru Impreza WRX “Gobstopper II” driven by Olly Clark, the Peugeot 208 T16 Pikes Peak-record holder driven by Sebastien Loeb, and the Formula 1 McLaren-Mercedes MP4/13 driven by Nick Heidfeld.

Watching these machines tackle the climb is a true delight, and hearing each wind it out is enough to give any gearhead some goosebumps. Hit play, crank the volume, and get stoked.
