  • Description

    Southport, Merseyside.

    Title: "HUSH-HUSH CAR. Major Segrave, on wonderful new Sunbeam, does 150 miles an hour in first 'try out', but slight defect prevented attack on World's record".

    M/S of a group of men huddled around a racing car, presumably Major S. is the one in the white boiler suit, goggles and helmet. L/S of a wide stretch of sandy beach, three men walk along in the distance, in the foreground the racing car drives past, two men then walk in to shot, one carries a spade - looks like slow motion camerawork. L/S of the beach and sea; the racing car drives into shot and passes the camera in slow motion. More shots of men walking on the beach.
