In what presenters describe as the "biggest and best historic motor racing party of the year," the Goodwood Revival features famous cars, famous drivers and a racetrack. Combine the three and you've got a bloody-good weekend. Watching a peerless assortment of vintage racecars go round the track from the grandstands is good fun, but what's it like watching from the drivers' perspectives?

Fortunately, the proliferation of video cameras in vintage racing and online video services have allowed us to do just that. In particular, in-car videos are most entertaining when great drivers are behind the wheel, such as Indy Racing League champion and Indianapolis 500 winner Kenny Bräck. At last weekend's Goodwood Revival, he took some wet laps in a Ford GT40 and somehow managed not to go straight – pretty much ever. From the safety of our desks, he still made us a bit nervous sawing at the wheel on a straightaway next to a wall (pictured above).

We included six other in-car/bicycle videos from the weekend below, such as one with former Formula One racer and endurance racing legend Derek Bell, who manhandles an old Corvette and its venerable 396-cubic-inch, 425-horsepower V8. And despite the wet track during the bicycle race, don't expect any powerslides.
