The Goodwood Revival usually yields some interesting Youtube clips, this year was no exception. A search just threw this fantastic onboard video of a Ferrari 250 GT Drogo up. It's a shame of course you can't see the beautiful exterior of this suave Italian racing machine, but hey, at least there is those gorgeous clocks draped all over the dashboard. And then there's the sound of course, the 12 cylinders of the 2953cc engine create a very impressive snarl. Though, for some reason, it seems to have some connotations with a NASCAR V8, but that might be just due to the quality of the microphone used. The lucky driver of this car is Hans Hugenholtz, who puts up a great show. Taking it by the scruff of the neck Hugenholtz majestically guides this, apparently, short wheelbased 250 over the fast Goodwood track in the RAC TT celebration. Hugenholtz is well known for being a good and fast driver, though, that might have something to do with the fact that he always seems to have the fastest cars. Owning an eclectic range of cars he surely knows what's good (we're still looking forward to seeing him take his newly-acquired Hirondelle sports car from the 50s to the track). There are actually two parts to this video so do take a look at the one underneath, where the steering wheel is handed to former Indycar ace Danny Sullivan. So, in total about an hour of Ferrari video material, we don't expect you to watch all of it though, you would have to be the most extreme of V12 fans to sit through that..
