The Goodwood Revival is awesome in many ways—it takes place in England, you get dressed up, everyone looks fabulous—but perhaps the most awesome thing about it is that the priceless vintages cars actually get driven and raced against each other. Is it terrifying at times? You bet it is.
Ever watch a video and wonder how on earth that close call didn’t turn into a crash? Here’s a whole bunch of World Rally Championship clips like that for your viewing pleasure. You’re welcome.
