    The event is the 1971 East African Safari Rally.

    The event took place between the 8th and 12th April 1971.

    Seen at 00:11 is the Ford Escort Mark I 1600 TC of Vic Preston Jr and Bev Smith.

    The number 11 car (the eventual winner) is the Datsun 240Z of Edgar Herrmann.

    Car 3 seen is the Ford Escort of Robin Hillyar.

    Car 8 seen is the Ford Escort of Hannu Mikkola.

    Seen on left of picture at 01:23 is renowned British sports broadcaster Dickie Davies (he covered lots of rallies during the 1970s).
