Classic Formula One cars are very rare, very high-strung creatures, and to see two of them racing together is a rare sight. Even rarer is watching a 1977 Lotus 78 wearing classic John Player Special livery in tandem with a 1989 Benetton B189 drive up Mount Hakone in Japan.

Accompanied by a pair of drift cars, assorted sports cars and a Porsche 962c, this video by Japanese magazine Motorhead showcases the wonderful curves and landscape of Hakone Shindo.

Hakone Shindo is a 13.8 km by-pass toll road that connects the town of Hakone in Kanagawa Prefecture to the Tokaido highway. The toll is 250 yen (RM8.90).
