Hillclimbing in a Formula Car

by Paul Strauss

If driving a Formula racecar on a track isn’t thrilling enough for you, then check out the race at Cividale Castelmonte, an Italian hillclimb race which includes Formula cars in its roster. Winning last year’s race was Federico Liber, who was kind enough to capture his high-speed journey in his Gloria C8F formula car on camera and posted it to YouTube.

The first three minutes or so of the video is just Liber getting set to start the race, but at 3:25 the real action kicks in, with Liber taking to narrow, curvy uphill streets at breakneck speeds. We’re not sure what his top speed was, but he finished the entire course in just about 3:17.80, a full 11 seconds faster than his closest competitor.
