The Festival of Speed is insane. I attended the 10th anniversary event and there's nothing even like it here in the states. Pre-war to modern F1 cars racing up Lord March's mile-plus driveway with just an oversized hay bale separating spectators from the action. No monster trucks here, everything is top shelf with all the elite European manufactures on display with new and historic models. Should be on all gear-heads bucket list.

It's definitely on my bucket list!

I love some of the YouTube videos from the festival, but I think this might be the wildest of them all...

Being an A35 owner, ~this video~ of the St Mary's Cup event at Goodwood is one of my favourites.

The Rae Davis "red peanut" A35 seen in the video has a 135 HP "A series" engine!

Then of course there was Rowan Atkinson's (aka Mr. Bean) performance atop his Mini at the 2009 Revival.

Festival of Speed and the Revival, they're both on my list.
