    This may be a mix of shots from the Coppa Acerbo race at Pescara over several years, as it starts off as a race for sports cars, then shows a mid to late 1930’s Auto Union Grand Prix car, then early 1930’s Alfas and Bugattis.

    00:14 – Tazio Nuvolari stands with his hand on the seatback of his car (Alfa Romeo sports car No.4).
    00:55 – an Auto Union Grand prix car.
