To that end, here is a video of a spectacular performance by William Evans in his 1911 Benz 200 ‘Blitzen Benz’ as he embarks on his run up the Goodwood hill. Things, as you will no doubt see for yourself, do not go according to plan... Following a slithery launch off the line, the Benz looks to be gathering serious pace. That is until the slippery conditions send it careering backwards off the track and almost into the bales. Evans shows good sportsmanship, throwing thumbs up for the crowd. Though this was a short-lived run, it’s fantastic to see these old beasts properly driven in anger up the Hill at FOS.
