Video: Watch a very sideways Frazer Nash hillclimb run

Here is a car and driver combination very familiar to us at Goodwood, just in a less familiar setting than the confines of our Motor Circuit. Hughie Walker is a firm crowd favourite at our Members' Meetings thanks to his elbows-out, four-wheel-drift every corner driving style and his Frazer Nash Martyr Special has been on the grid plenty of times.

Here however Hughie is tackling the famed Prescott Hillclimb in his lightweight, tail happy beast. We'll be honest and say that the burnout at the start seems to do very little for rear wheel grip but thankfully that is of little concern to Hughie. The driver himself refers to the run as 'scrappy' in the video description but to us it looks like vintage Hughie, setting up the car beautifully to four wheel drift through each and every corner. The speedometer hovers close to the 60mph mark on occasion and the final time is a satisfying 47.03 for the 1,128-yard course.
