The 2018 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb is in the books, and the Bentley Bentayga and Volkswagen I.D.R. claimed victory. For the second most legendary Hill Climb Race in the world – the Hillclimb at the Goodwood Festival of Speed – drivers will be battling against a fully autonomous 1965 Ford Mustang.

There’s likely something eerie about battling with a race car, looking over, only to find no driver in the cabin. (I’ll be honest, every self-driving car makes me think of Christine). Such will be the case with those battling this ’65 self-driven car, created by Siemens. The brilliant engineers there have used Bentley Systems to input a 3D scan of the GoodWood course, so that the car knows the climb front to back. Relatively minor sensor tech adorns the car, which still holds the slim but strong pony car build of its original stance. With a bright turquoise livery, contrailed by streams of binary code – representing the data-driven nature of the car – the ‘stang will make the climb twice a day from July 12 to July 15, and each climb will be streamed across the Festival.
