Turning racing rubber into smoke via burnouts isn’t the kind of activity that you’ll see during a Le Mans race, but this is exactly what we’re going to watch today. The clip above brings us a Bentley Speed 8 that is inflicting serious pain on its rear tires.
The Speed 8, a prototype that got all the way up to first place in the 2003 24 Hours of Le Mans event, was recently threw at the Goodwood hillclimb, as part of the 2013 Festival of Speed preview day.

The British Racing Green-dressed machine offered people around a delicious view, performing a delicious dynamic burnout at the starting line.
