Let’s say you’re wheeling a Maserati 250F in a vintage grand prix at Goodwood. You spin — oh no! What do you do now?

Just watch as Simon Diffey (the driver in question here) bump starts the 250F himself without even getting out of the cockpit. All he does is spin a tire by hand and that’s enough to get the car rolling for a bump start.

Such are the joys of open-wheeled cars!

The 250F, if you’re curious, weighs about 1500 pounds.
