both the videos from Goodwood on this site are worth a view

Saw the Beast at Goodwood FOS and it just made me smile every time it was driven past. There was also a certain irony to the many 'no smoking' signs on straw bales lining the track while the Beast belched flames from two side exhaust ports.
