Super rare and expensive oldtimers

Besides the fancy rides we also get to see the insanely rare old-timers race around the track in a true balls to the wall fashion, driving at the complete edge with multimillion dollars’ worth of rides. One of the more memorable moments was in 2013, when we witnessed the ultra rare Ferrari 250 GTO attend the hillclimb race. To put it into perspective. in 2013 a Ferrari 250 GTO was sold at auction for a mind boggling 53 million dollars.
