Video: This bonkers hillclimb run is near perfection

We know a few things about hillclimbs. Sure we’re not an Estate that hosts the top level of modern, stupidly fast specially-designed hillclimb cars (hi Shelsley Walsh), but once a year we let some lunatics hurl metal power up the driveway outside Goodwood House. So take it from us, this hillclimb run is fast.

It’s not just fast though, it’s bordering on perfection. Alex Summers’ attack on the Hillclimb Masters course in Braga, Portugal, is so smooth it’s spellbinding. The speed at which Summers is able to dispatch corner after corner, running his right and left front wheel just inches from barriers and dipping to perfection into the odd gutter is incredible.

There will be, we guarantee it, nothing under 70 seconds that will make your heart race (and you wonder about the sanity of some drivers) more than this incredible run. Alex, we applaud you.
