The vehicle has benn modified specifically for the event, rather than to be used on the open road. From purpose-built drift cars to multi-million dollar classics, nearly every kind of vehicle has ran up the hill. The powertrain 289ci. (4.7-litre), Suspension and steering still remains stock. The Festival of Speed properly begins today with the timed hill climbs. Also with the help of Bentley Systems was created three-dimensional map of the track, which will allow the most precise positioning of the machine during the race.
