LeMans start? Everybody runs to their racer at the starting flag? Or just an eager bunch?

Cool video. I never got a good look at the guy in the cape, but heard somebody mention Darth Vader- was that a Darth Vader outfit?
The side car was a neat idea.
I can identify with the unicyclist. One thing that's not obvious is that with a few extra tries, the person could quite likely ride up the slope okay. If they don't normally ride on a slope that steep, it can throw them.

this track is set up on the infield of the local motorspeedway, the paved track is also open to bikes at least once a week also. Zoobombers were invited as half time entertainment. check with your local bike racing org. to see if there's a track near you...this is a pretty new event, I think it attracts MTB riders and off-season cyclocross racers.
