If you’re lacking a little oomph today, fear not. Never mind coffee, the Monza Historic Sixties' Endurance race from our friends at Peter Auto is far more likely to get your heart racing. Climb aboard with James Cottingham in his 1964 Shelby Cobra as he chases down David Hart’s pole position Bizzarrini 5300 GT in a first lap battle for the lead.

In just four short minutes, watch as Cottingham clings to the tail of his competition, coming within grasping distance of a pass in this high-speed, bumper-to-bumper race.
Eventually, his persistence pays off, and the Cobra strikes, sliding up the inside of Hart and making off with the lead. There’s no time for celebration mind, there’s a whole race to campaign…
