Outside of our own archive, HillClimb Monsters has long been one of our go-tos for a quick fix of frantic, flat-out action featuring an eclectic array of machinery, all of it built not bought. 

This compliation – featuring full runs of ten very different cars – comes from a Croatian hillclimb held to celebrate both the end of the season and the memory of Hungarian hillclimb legend Istvan Kavecz, also known as 'Bongo' hence the unusual name of the event.

Held in the stunning town of Skradin on the bank of the Krka river, the setting is one of sweeping bends and tighter hairpins hugging the hillside with sheer drops on one side and unforgiving rock walls on the other. Not that that seems to hold back any of the drivers who fearlessly throw an impressive selection of cars up the slope. Our favourites are a very improbable looking Smart ForFour with over 500 turbocharged…
