Footage Fridays: 9,000 RPM At 6,000 Feet

This is the Arosa hillclimb, 78 corners stretched along five miles of the Swiss Alps. It winds up to nearly 6,000 feet above sea level, lined with trees and stone walls and lit up by a vintage single seater charging through the bends.

The car is a Brabham BT30 Formula 2 car from the late 1960s and the soundtrack comes from its four-cylinder, 225 horsepower Cosworth FVA motor redlining somewhere past 9,000 RPM. In case you’re wondering, this is what the drive of our dreams looks like.
