Possibly the most expensive race of all time is being held in the UK next month.
The 20th anniversary of the Goodwood Revival features an hour-long race featuring 30 of the most valuable, unique, adored and collectible cars ever created.
The Kinrara Trophy will take place on Friday September 7 and showcase pre-1963 GT vehicles from the likes of Aston Martin, Ferrari and Jaguar - all worth a combined £200million.
With today's F1 cars valued at around £10million each, even the pinnacle of 2018 motorsport can't match this race's price tag.
The chances of a shunt isn't as slim as you might think. That means this race could also be followed by the priciest repair bill ever sanctioned, especially if a Ferrari 250 GTO (pictured) is involved.
The hour-long event - which takes place through sunset and into dusk at the historical West Sussex circuit - will not only field the most expensive cars in the world, if they crash then it could become the priciest repair job ever known.
And the chances of a shunt isn't as slim as you might think.
At the wheel of each of the 30 priceless vehicles will be seasoned racing drivers, whose adrenaline and competitive juices could soon dilute their fears of crashing an expensive motor.
Don't think of it as a bull in a china shop - more like 30 Tasmanian devils in an art gallery.
The race is one of 15 scheduled over the weekend, which in total will feature more than half a billion pounds worth of classic machinery.
However, it's the Kinrara Trophy that takes centre stage.
Open only to period GT cars with a closed-cockpit and at least three-litres of engine capacity, the starting grid is a who's who of multi-million pound motors.
These Italian stallions will go head-to-head against four Aston Martin DB4 GTs and a phalanx of Jaguar E-types, plus two AC Cobras and a Maserati 3500 GT.
Forget Formula One - this is the race that will send the biggest shockwaves through your senses.
Not only are they some of the prettiest vehicles ever to be handcrafted, the soundtrack of Ferrari V12s, Aston Martin and Jaguar straight-sixes, and Cobra V8s will be an assault on your ear drums.
The Duke of Richmond - who is the owned of the Goodwood estate - said: 'It is fitting that as we celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Revival, we have put together the most valuable Kinrara Trophy grid ever.
'Most would expect to find cars of this value locked away in a garage or museum. But at the Revival you will find them racing into the dusk, headlights blazing, and brake discs glowing as they roar around one of the fastest and most demanding circuits in the UK.
'It is a thrilling and unforgettable experience for spectators, and a nerve-tingling one for the owners and drivers. It truly is one of the greatest spectacles in motor racing and I look forward to seeing you all there.'
If this sounds like the race for you, tickets for the event are still available on the Goodwood website.
