It’s a fact only known by a few million people that if had too much of all the classic and brand new tarmac fighters at the Goodwood Festival of Speed’s Hillclimb Course, you can jump on a tractor to check out some of the coolest rally cars racing further up the hill. Here are most of those.

It’s worth queueing up for, really. The route goes by Lord March’s parent’s house, which is lovely, and you can spot blue Ferrari F40s in the parking lot while passing by Jay Kay’s motorhome without knowing it.

The tractors also cross each other’s way at some very tight spots in the forest, so excitement is guaranteed all the way to the Rally Stage, which for this year’s FoS was designed by 1983 World Rally Champion Hannu Mikkola.

Not too shabby, is it? Than again, nothing is half done at Goodwood.
