Caterham 620R at the Goodwood hillclimb 2016

Jon Barnes driving the famous Goodwood climb in just 61.76 seconds, fast enough to be in the top five in 2016. Possibly assisted by some inclement weather for some of the other much more expensive machinery, but still an incredible achievement for the driver and the car.

The car won the Race Car for the Road category in 2016 and I think there are fractions of a second to be shaved off particularly in the first couple of hundred metres, and Jon gives the flint wall at ~39 seconds a health dose of respect as any sane person would. A brilliant drive.
