Need a laugh? We’ve got your back, with today’s Elevenses. No, we’re not bringing you some multi-million-pound racing legends roaring round a legendary circuit. Nor in fact, are we bringing you monster rally cars tackling the world’s greatest stages, though that is a little bit closer. Welcome to the Cotswold Clouds Trial, specifically, the Crooked Mustard ascent.

This off-road trial sees old cars of all flavours scrapping their way up a trail, from Volkswagen Beetles and classic Ford Escorts to home-brewed specials. The Crooked Mustard section here is so steep and slippery it forces drivers and co-drivers into some creative weight transfer techniques in the quest for grip at the driven wheels. By weight transfer techniques, we mean maniacal rocking and bouncing inside the cockpit. What? You did say you needed a laugh…
Welcome to Goodwood Elevenses, a mid-morning helping of motoring-related amusement to help break up your day. Watch the last video: Testing an Alfa Romeo 8C Monza
